    There is already 2 threads on this and I've posted to one of them but the thread doesn't seem to be bumped up the thread list?? Can any mods merge with the other threads and bump it please? I've started another thread cos this is massive! Without iPlayer I'll be devastated

    Anyway, BBC iPlayer now saying need Flash Player from Android Market, clicked and all up to date. Always worked before, OS up to date, not rooted, no sideloaded apps.

    Can anyone throw any light on this? Cheers.

    BBC keep tinkering with their site. They have web designers with some kind of hyperactivity disorder. Try origami browser. It disguises itself as a desktop and works fine.

    Cheers for the quick reply. Forgot to say that I tried Origami Browser with same results

    I'll check back onto iPlayer in the morning and see what gives

    Edit: I've tried changing the settings on Origami to the recommended browser and user agent with the no joy.

    Origami works for me. I just tested it again on Eastenders. Settings Nexus 7 and Chrome. Set to Desktop.

    Just installed origami and it works with the default settings straight out of the box. That's great, thanks for the tip.

    I'm still having problems. But new ones this time. I've done what you said except I don't understand the set to desktop thing? I can't seem to see an option to set to desktop.

    Origami now says "browser cannot handle this webpage"

    I have the same problems. No more iplayer. I can get simple browser to work but it turns itself off or doesn't keep the pb awake.
    Now trying origami. I also get the can't handle the website situation. How do I set it to desktop.

    Also developers: the home icon does not work. I also want to set it as the default browser so the iplayer and twitter shortcuts open origami and not the default browser

    Press the icon with three lines. Top RH.

    You will see four options Desktop, Private, Adblock and Booster. Ensure Desktop is blue (on). Private and Booster white (off)
    Other settings are Chrome as desktop agent.

    Iplayer is working again this evening. Whatever it was that changed must have been changed back.

    BBC sent me an apology and said there had been a problem with "the version of the website used by Blackberry Playbooks" which was now fixed.
