The BBC have updated the site and the torch is supported now. Seems to be a lower bitrate than the iphone streams though :(

lol beaten to the update by a matter of hours ;) agree that the bitrate doesnt look as good, but its a start and hopefully it will improve!

they appear to have preset for EDGE bitrates rather than it being adaptive or ask you what bitrate you want to use.

Re: Iplayer

OK, so BBC iPlayer is now supporting torch, so why when I try to watch a programme in a 3G coverage area does my iPlayer screen tell me to switch to a wifi connection??

Re: Iplayer

basically becuase watching a show or two on the iplayer will chew up almost all of your monthly data allowance so youre forced to use WiFi for all streaming.

Re: Iplayer

I find it works on 3G if I use the WAP browser (vodafone Live).  I am using the 9700 so may be different on the torch.

Re: Iplayer

yeah, torch version is different, probably at the behest of the carriers. We also dont have a WP browser now.
