BBC updates web-based iPlayer for iPad

updated 03:10 pm EDT, Thu May 27, 2010

Streams TV, radio feeds without Flash

In tandem with the arrival of the iPad in the UK, the BBC has updated its iPlayer web app in order to support the device's layout. iPlayer lets British residents stream BBC radio and TV shows after their original broadcasts. The iPad site has a tabbed interface, with larger text and images than its iPhone counterpart.

Settings are limited to choosing "high" or "normal" bandwidth, and imposing parental restrictions. The site is notably missing bookmarking support, meaning that switching pages or out of Safari will force a video to restart when returning. It is also meant to be used with Wi-Fi instead of 3G, given the bandwidth demands video can impose.
