iPlayer Issues ReportsLatest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
Hi @BBCiPlayer @BBCiPlayerForum I need help! Someone is using my iPlayer account on another device. I think it's a TV at a self-catering flat I stayed at. How can I log out of my account on all devices and reset my password so only I can access my iPlayer account.
@RetroActiveGM @TomGardinerUK @bbcdoctorwho iPlayer is counted in the BARB charts though I believe the latest reports indicated that it makes up for less than 500k viewers & then you have the uncertainty issue there of not knowing what views are infact repeat views from people who already watched. I think My5 is but I'm-
@salopcast I turn iplayer off on 85mins into every match now,I don't know what the problem is flying 👍
@SkatinLis @Isabel__Eaton No one needs to watch television on Christmas Day do they? We can make do with box sets, Netflix and Iplayer. Allow the guys that work in television to have the day off
@HumaxUK still no further updates yet on a permanent fix for @iplayer or the On Demand services??
Of course iPlayer doesn't work when I want to catch up on Small Axe
@Wizardisms @bbcdoctorwho BBC iPlayer only works in the UK. Sorry, it’s due to rights issues. This is the message I get. What do they mean rights issue. They filmed it. And they broadcast it... I find this very strange... And disappointing.
@Steveeejg You don't need to look after it, it just happens. The thing is to deal with it once it's the present. Which is what you do all the time. More sleep would probably help but only you can decide how to do that. I'm feeling much better & am defiantly watching iPlayer till v. late.🤔
@BBCiPlayer Okay thank you for that. I did manage to get some cited help in order to sign in to iPlayer on my TV, but I am not getting any voice feedback from voice guide. Can I send you the version numbers of the software as a Diem please?
@MikeDiver I feel you. It's entirely awful and impossible. We gave up within the fortnight, and hoped iPlayer kids content would take up the slack.

@Lucy_Worsley No bloody iPlayer wouldn’t work/link in ... is it still there
I can’t believe I didn’t mine iPlayer for football docs to play whilst working sooner, what an error.
@Karafalos @BBCNews @BBC In my case, it's worked. I stopped paying licence fee and I don't consume any of their services. Well, I don't watch any broadcast TV, nor iPlayer. I refuse to help finance such an awful organisation, which runs regular hate-pieces on cycling
@SiHodges79 @BritBox_UK I wouldn't have thought iplayer to be the issue, more likely would be the netflix deal.
Just checking - are all of zoom, skype, facebook etc ramping up their servers for the holiday season? (I'm sure they will be). What about games companies, netflix, bbc iplayer etc? Do we have bandwidth for everyone to be online to family solid for a few days? Start promoting it!
@filmsonwax Unless you want to use a VPN to sign into Amazon Prime US (from what I know it still won’t work) iplayer is your only bet I’m afraid.
Anyway, new work up on the Gucci website, BBC iPlayer and a few bits pending on Film4 👊🏾
@DrMatthewSweet I mean even the same week shows weren't on Listen Again/iPlayer for eight or so years due to a non-financial dispute. This is asking for trouble.
@parditti The iplayer version moves a bit faster so some of the jokes are punchier But the Netflix version has a whole subplot with the director and his sister that rounds them out more Both versions work well so it might depend whether you're in a jokes or character mood
@mat_sanderson @dublinerma @expressvpn I was having issues with iPlayer for ages until I downloaded the latest software update and connect to server London (not East London). It mostly works OK! But now ITV Hub has gone down (and Britbox). Any other VPN suggestions guys?
@DMinghella I had to check iPlayer settings to make sure it's set to best quality, because it doesn't look like UHD...
@SophiaMyles If they use a vpn, like NORD VPN, and change their location to the UK they should be able to access the iplayer. This works to view US TV from the UK so should work.
@Lucy_Worsley Terrible excuse we watched the Crown, then you on iPlayer later, simple x
@Lucy_Worsley Terrible excuse we watched the crown ans you on iPlayer afterwards, simple x
Hit that part of the night when I can do no more work. Giving #WeAreWhoWeAre on iPlayer a go 🇮🇹
@NOWTV None of the Apps (BBC iPlayer, Netflix, ITVHub) working on my TV. Plus Homepage is not looking same as normal. Lots missing. Is there a problem you are aware of?
BBC iPlayer picture quality is pretty bad when viewing live TV isn't it? Or is it just me? It's like HD never even happened.
@Lucy_Worsley I was at work so hoping it's on iplayer. My parents took my paintings down to decorate and never put them back up! Character building I guess. Looking forward to watching.
Teaching your parents via video call how to use their fire sticks and apps. Papa is convinced that @NetflixUK is the hardware .... I cant get iplayer to work on my netflix
@BBCiPlayer why’s iPlayer not loading on TV? All other channels work?
