    Hello
    Hope I'm in the right section. I've been watching Iplayer on ipod touch for ages fine but for last few days i've been unable to get it to play.
    I've done all the things in the settings - cleared cache cookies etc but it won't work. (wireless is fine as can access other sites)
    What is happening is a shaded box with click to play is appearing and seems to be more prominent than before.

    Can you help?

    I can't play on my iphone either. Can see programs fine and the play box, I click on it, it 'deoresses' then nothing happens. All my desktop pcs are fine.

    As far as I am aware, the Apple i products do not support Flash. Certaily the new iPad doesn´t.
    I understand this is because Apple wishes to control applet development. However it is a severe limitation for iPhone and web browsing as more and more sites use Flash as their core technology

    Actually, iplayer uses QuickTime on iPhones/iPods.

    Hi
    I have been watching a series on Iplayer through my ipod touch and finished ep. 11 to watch back to back with 12 I find I can not watch 12 as Ipod flashes up "Not supported, need Adobe Flash" Apple will not let me download Adobe and now all previous episodes say the same! Is this the beeb or Apple changing the goal posts?
    What is happening? Having a touch which I can play Iplayer was one of the best things - bad enough having to buy a new cable and now have been thwarted again.
    Any help appreciated.
