Click on a browser for details on how to install.   

Due to the resources required to develop, test and support BBC iPlayer for each individual browser currently available, and in the interest of delivering value for the licence fee, we only support the most popular browsers currently used. We'll continue to follow user trends and support the top browsers accordingly, as and when they change.

We recognise that while some users may choose to use another browser, we cannot guarantee a problem-free BBC iPlayer experience nor can we offer user support to those using browsers not listed here.

The browsers listed have been tested with BBC iPlayer on the following operating systems:

  • Linux Ubuntu 11.x
  • Mac OSX 10.x
  • Windows 7
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows 8
  • Windows 10
