yes, yes, yes, bbc iplayer now working on my C7, have to download plugin via nokia suite from PC. Thank you Nokia/BBC
Yeah ,I second that- for a few weeks all we were getting was a standard reply directing us to download and install a months old fix for an old problem!!
-least its fixed now.
Does this mean iplayer will not work unless Anna installed?
Anybody got it to work without Anna on N8?
Sorry for the delay, the plan is to deliver an update via the SW Update channel to fix this issue. The update should be available pretty soon, you will find it in the phone's SW Update menu after it's released.
Seems currently only available via Nokia/Ovi Suite rather than via Device > SW Update:

I was just trying to figure out where to get the fix from when you posted your message!
Save me some time digging around in the developer section. As you say, the patch is available via Nokia Suite, but NOT yet via the software update option on a Nokia phone, at least not on my N8.
Installing it now........
It's not appearing on Nokia Suite for me pr SW Update on my C7. Anyone got any tips about where else it might be found? Thanks- glad to see something has finally happened with this.
Same problem for me - just spent ages updating all kinds of software but still not coming up for the N8. I note the above example uses a later beta version of Noia Suite. I'm on 3.2.100 & can't find it anywhere - where am I supposed to look? It doesn't come up in software updates. Getting really frustrated.
Any change that someone that already received the update plugin can upload this for the rest to download. Or Nokia can you please give us a link as the update is still not available for me!
Not available for me either, have checked over and over today, in between mending the washing machine. Hopefully my repairs will work..........
I think I read somewhere that updates only refresh in a 24 or 12 hour cycle. Even with Nokia Suite. If that's so, temporarily alter your date a day forward or back and try search again.
Indeed, but the latest nokia suite beta's have a refresh option,
Thanks for the tips...have tried but no luck as yet. Surely Nokia can sort this soon if the fix exists. All a bit of a mess.
Hello, I recently had to a hard reset on my N8 and unfortunately the BBC iPlayer app was lost with this reset. Having seen that there is now a fix for the iPlayer issue I want to download the iPlayer app again, however there doesn't seem to be a compatible iPlayer app for the N8 at the Nokia Store. Has anyone else had this problem and is there a version (for the E7 for example) that can be downloaded in its place? Many thanks.

Hello, I installed the 5800XM version of iPlayer on my N8 as previously suggested (not so much an app but a shortcut to the mobile iPlayer site).
I am currently able to stream the programmes however when I downloaded a video it came up with the 'no licence' error message which is of course the reason for the creation of this thread!
I have the latest version of Nokia Suite installed on my laptop so I will try the support section and give it another go; hopefully this will cure the licence issue!
For anyone who is interested you can download the iPlayer widget from the link below.
