    We are assured that the download in the 800kbps version as streamed in HQ. Does anyone else feel that on a subjective view this version isn't as good as the standard 600kbps streaming one?

    Can the corporation please expedite the 1500kbps version?

    From a few BBC developers Twitter feeds it seems there's some kind of issue with the player not rendering properly at the moment (it does look soft).

    This is apparently to be fixed soon, so hopefully the SD version will get a significant quality bump in and of itself.

    i've just installed the new adobe player ete and have also find the new player almost unwatchable as 90% of the screen cubes out when any movement is on the screen
    so trying to watch swarm on the player in the next 6 days at the sec ..is pointless
    is this going to be fixed as this thead was started over 2 weeks ago

    I'm also mfinding the quality of downloaded Programmes terribly poor. My system plays the "old" iplayer files perfectly but the new "Air" versions are blocky and very "soft".

    Lets hope there is a fix soon....

    This isn't necessarily a bug. Desktop is currently available for beta testing, and it makes sense to use smaller files (thus lower quality) while it's tested. The quality will no doubt increase once the product goes live (next month I think).
