yeah, but the thing is rick, there is no drm solution in flash now. and there's no sign they'll ever be one. and even if there is it isn't coming any time soon. and then when it?s launched it'd need time to bed down and actually establish it's remotely secure.
soon two years have passed and there'd still be no service at all on iplayer. surely the bbc should put out the working version in the meantime?
this does read a bit like you're criticising the bbc for not using an alternative that doesn't exist.
and i'd point out on my windows mobile pda flash video doesn't work at all, and indeed flash is in a hellish state with development seemingly abandoned. drmed windows media files do work.
