Industry Briefing host and 5Live Presenter Victoria Derbyshire told her twitter followers what Jane said about iPlayer traffic:

Fascinating fact: 50 requests to watch a BBC TV show or BBC radio prog via iplayer EVERY SECOND. Wow. Am at a #BBCOnline conf

Jon Howard, a BBC developer team lead for children, added his knowledge of children's mobile phones:

"1/2 of all children between 8 & 11 have a mobile phone" - I'm pretty sure they are mostly not internet enabled. #bbconline


  • Comment number 1.

    Re the listed "business partners" - where's the FOSS community? Where are MythTV, GNOME, Free Software Foundation, Canonical, Red Hat, etc?

    Re iPlayer playout, the open-source community could definitely help you - as we would love to see iPlayer plugins on repurposed hardware... even where free-software devs have been able to hone h264 playout code better than people like Adobe - who ripped out Stage Video logic from Linux Flash clients...

    Give us open specs to work to and make it easy for the FOSS community - they want to help extend reach etc... use the Linked model - where the UI can be written independently, and then hand off control..

    We *want* to help... don't just force people to buy more kit and have to throw CPU at it..
