Seeing as the BBC Basic/BBC Internet Blog logo was prominent throughout it seemed appropriate to mention Micro Men here!
Once you click on "Use lower bandwidth version" as Anthony suggests, BBC iPlayer will remember this and you'll only be offered the 500kbps version. The link is at the bottom of every programme page.
See this FAQ for more information on how to do this http://iplayerhelp.external.bbc.co.uk/help/streaming_programmes/quality_change
Don't forget that downloading programmes and playing HD programmes will use more of your 25GB monthly allowance than playing the lower quality streams.
I've forwarded on your comments to the techies who deal with the way the board looks for them to investigate.
Have you seen the BBC iPlayer help page at http://iplayerhelp.external.bbc.co.uk/help/finding_programmes/real_wma_streams
I don't understand your complaint, all queries through the FAQ page are answered by the BBC. As I have said above, the messageboard is no longer the most efficient way to deal with queries.
Service Updates does have posts on problems, but these are removed as soon as the problem is fixed. As for reporting problems with programmes, the FAQ pages are searchable and are updated when we know there is a problem with a programme, so we do offer what you're after, but on the help pages.
I'm the iPlayer messageboard host and am supported by others on the team. We tend to keep Service Updates limited to important service announcements. We also update Twitter http://twitter.com/BBCiPlayer
We link on the boards as much as possible where relevant but other users are also doing a good job updating and posting links.
The live streams are listed at http://iplayerhelp.external.bbc.co.uk/help/finding_programmes/real_wma_streams
That is strange, I've passed this on for the team to look into.
We state several times on the messageboard that we don't respond to every new post, but we do monitor them all. For one thing other users may be able to help, and often the answer is already in the searchable help pages http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/help
You can also contact the support team there - they do respond to every query and their support shouldn't be "limited". While they may take some time to respond, major issues should be flagged up and passed on to us swiftly.
We do answer all your questions in the help pages - http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/help
What are rights - http://iplayerhelp.external.bbc.co.uk/help/about_iplayer/online_rights
How do I know what's available? - http://iplayerhelp.external.bbc.co.uk/help/about_iplayer/whats_on This explains Not Available/Coming Soon.
Did you read this, it came out today
"This month, the BBC will replace the download player with new cross-platform software that runs on the desktop, though using the Flash-based - and Windows- and Mac-compatible - Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR) rather than Windows Media."
Hello Egg, I hope to have an announcement on the board and a special section later today.
Have you seen the FAQ on transfers? You may need to play the file on your computer before sending it to your phone
