BBC Media Player buffering

Why is this?  

 

I have a package with VM that has all the bells and whistles with a 100mb data connection (which by the way isnt any better than before I upgraded but different story i guess).

 

Besides my son upstairs on Fifa 15, there is nothing whatsoever using VM.

 

If its because BBC have too many people watching it then VM will find my Dear John letter on their mat next week. 

 

Yours hopefully

 

Mike.

Re: BBC Media Player buffering

...so you are assuming that your ISP is at fault?

 

There appear to be many issues reported by the BBC as unresolved problems.

 

What device are you running BBC Media Player on and what level of operating system?

Re: BBC Media Player buffering

Yes. I guess. Generally unimpressed. From virgins above ground installation that should be buried underground, to the 100 mega bit connection that is only available when I'm asleep.
I was using the TiVo box to try and watch the iPlayer. I have to say after spinning around the menus on a friends sky box recently i feel kind of hard done by. It's much slicker than virgin.
This evening... 2 kids using the internet and my Spotify cuts in and out. **bleep**?

Re: BBC Media Player buffering

Hi jonpwatson5,

 

Thanks for coming back to us on this. 

 

It looks as though most iPlayer issues were resolved after investigating individuals connection. 

 

For some reason, i'm not able to see your account based on your forum credentials.  

 

I have sent you a private message regarding this. 

 

Thanks,
