Hello,
 
Can you supply a link to the BBC radio I player download?
I found what I think it is, but confirmation would be appreciated, thank you.
 
Best Regards, Jim.

                I use the BBC Iplayer all the time and have absolutely no problems.

People are increasingly referring to applications as apps.  They aren't, but people have increasingly less respect for language and English is becoming increasingly imprecise and ambiguous.  I'm not familiar enough with the BBC site to comment much on the player but from the little I've used it, it looks to me like an embedded player and it appeared properly accessible to me with a standard browser.  It may be that at some time in the past, the Webbie program was helpful in using the player.  I am doubtful it is either necessary or particularly beneficial now, though I hope thos who use the player comment on that question.  I've played audio using a standard browser without problems  when I've used the site off and on.

 

I saw something about the player being retired in the next few months.  But I have no idea what is being referred to.  Is there a player for mobile use and one on the web site itself for browser use?

My mistake, perhaps they should specify “mobile” app but if you have a look at the BBC site for I player radio, they continually call it an app, not an application, so it’s an abreviation, I should make it clear that I am talking about the actual PC I player radio now, on the BBC site,

So it’s a bit confusing. I don’t know if the actual BBC program will be accessible now, it didn’t used to be, which is the reason for Webbie, and, to come back to the original point, Webbie I player radio doesn’t work for me and I know of at leat three others who can’t use it either, so is that because the BBC is updating again? this happened before when Webbie had to do a lot of work to make it accessible. Incidentally, BBC live radio still works with Webbie.

 

 

Best Regards, Jim.

It isn't clear to me how, if at all, this app will affect listening with a computer.  What is being discussed is an app, not an application.  It is a mobile app.  I saw a statement that the BBC player in current use will be stopped.  But does that mean how you listen on the web site with a computer itself will change?

 

This article makes it very clear that the new release is an app.

I doubt you can tell from the article whether there are accessibility proboems.  If you saw a sighted person's description of Windows, how accessible would you think it is just based on that?

 

In addition, the link you gave isn't correct.  How did you get it?  the correct link is:

Hello,

 

Thankss to all who replied.

 

It looks like the BBC are to ditch the I player radio in favour of a new app, a quick look at some of the details seems to suggest problems with accessability, I hope I am wrong, but judge for yourself , the following address is where I got the details.

This is probably why the Webbie stuff is out of date, let’s hope it gets updated to cover the new, “improved” app.

 

Best Regards, Jim.

I think Webbie is out of date.  I'm sure there is a way to use the player with a standard browser that will work.

Sounds like it's a problem on the end of whatever service you are trying to
stream or play, and not yours. Maybe contact them?

Hello,

As Webbie was mentioned, the BBC I player on my W10 computer will not work,
I choose a program and then press enter, I get a message which says ,
"Failed to load this station, check you are on line, the remote server
returned an error 404 not found".
I have uninstalled and re installed the latest Webbie.

Any ideas?



Best Regards, Jim.

OK so its a file that seems to only exist on my machine in Outlook Express
and I've now copied it to system 32 and the pdf reader folder and we are
back in business. I had a sort of feeling its also in .net framework as well
but not on my machine its not. Good old windoze.
