As far as my knowledge is concerned, with the latest version of Google’s Linux based Android operating system supporting Adobe’s Flash player, the scene was set for web based video streaming services such as Iplayer to appear on smartphones. Thankfully the technical team at the BBC has managed to work things out and now playback is nearly perfect. The audio quality and even the frame rate are quite impressive when watching close-ups of guitar solos. Clearly the 1GHz Snapdragon processor has little problem handling the extra load put on it by the Flash player. However, the inquirer can confirm that those wanting to watch the BBC Iplayer through their Nexus One can do so, if Android 2.2 and Flash player are installed.Let me further add that there’s no doubt that Adobe’s Flash software does use phone resources such as processor time and battery life, however it is equally as evident that the Snapdragon chip is more than up to the task of playing back video. There are a lot of different methods of recording BBC iPlayer apart from one. BBC iplayer is the first of the platforms developed to allow internet users to watch archived streaming BBC programmes. Channels 4 and 5 also have this service, but in a much more limited way, and some of their programmes cost money – BBC iPlayer is free.
