    I have just bought a Samsung S5570 (Galaxy mini) which is not powerful enough to support Flash. Is there any way that I can use iPlayer (or similar program) to "listen again" on my phone (or any other Android 2.2 device?) Downloading podcasts works fine but there's only a limited selection available. Thank you !

    If it supports Windows Media Audio (WMA) streams, have a look at beebotron.org

    Thank you! The beebotron website is a clever idea - I think that it provides links directly to the feeds. Unfortunately on the phone I get ... silence .. and on the desktop the sound is a little distorted. Never mind and thanks for thinking of me. I guess that wma is a propietarty format and that Flash pay a licence fee to use it.
