BBC iPlayer: how to install and use

You can now become a BBC iPlayer user

You can now become a BBC iPlayer user
Published on by on UK Free TV

You can now become a BBC iPlayer user as long as you are using Windows XP and are a licence-fee payer resident in the United Kingdom.

First you must visit the <img src="data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAABAAAAAQAgMAAABinRfyAAAACVBMVEUAAAD8/vwEAgTo1XnGAAAAAXRSTlMAQObYZgAAADNJREFUCNdjYMAEjKsYGP4xvfnNsIGJmXF/ANPf/w4MTMyMBxiY/v533MC4ioHhHwMuAAAmbgz06BzauwAAAABJRU5ErkJggg==" class="xico" style="vertical-align:text-bottom" alt="www.bbc.co.uk link icon"> link icon bbc.co.uk/iplayerbeta/form.shtml page to register and this will provide a username and password.

You also need to register with the BBCi site too. If you have not done this already, please use <img src="data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAABAAAAAQAgMAAABinRfyAAAACVBMVEUAAAD8/vwEAgTo1XnGAAAAAXRSTlMAQObYZgAAADNJREFUCNdjYMAEjKsYGP4xvfnNsIGJmXF/ANPf/w4MTMyMBxiY/v533MC4ioHhHwMuAAAmbgz06BzauwAAAABJRU5ErkJggg==" class="xico" style="vertical-align:text-bottom" alt="www.bbc.co.uk link icon"> link icon this form to do so now.

The username and password is usually sent out in within a few days.

Once you have these, you can log into the iPlayer page:



First you need to select your first programme to download, so click on "Categories" and then "News and Weather" (in this example):



As you roll over the programme pictures and descriptions the number of days left for the programme to be downloaded is displayed.



Clicking on the programme icon brings up a page that describes it. Here is the information for the post-modern Tomorrows Word, "Click". A "download" button can clearly be seen on the right hand side.



The first time you click "download" a message inviting the installation of the iPlayer code is shown. Click on "install iPlayer library":



Next the usual Windows download security message is shown. Click "run" to download and install the "library":



Now Internet Explorer displays a security warning which requires "Run" to be clocked once more.



Now you have to accept Aunties (and Uncle Bills) terms and conditions:



It takes a minute or so for the installation to complete:



Once complete, click "Finish":



The "library" is now installed and displays a message indicating that there are no programmes.



A message then appears that insists that you upgrade Windows Media Player to install the relevant digital rights management (DRM) software:



You have to click "Yes" to give the installer permission to modifiy your computers settings:



Now the "Click" programme can be seen in the library this includes a progress bar:



Finally when the download is complete, you can click "watch now" to finally see the programme:
