I can't get BBC iPlayer Downloads to work with Google Chrome. It works ok with IE but will not download in Chrome. Can anyone help?

I clear browsing data completely virtually every time I use Chrome.

I've read elsewhere on the Internet that many people have found BBC iPlayer doesn't work properly with Chrome.

I got BBCIplayer and BBCIplayer Downloads to both work under CHROME on a Win8.1 Desktop.I had to uninstall then re-install CHROME to achieve this. However, the same approach taken on my Win8.1 laptop did not work. I can access BBC videos but when I try to Download, nothing happens.

I have no problem with BBCIplayer and its Downloading on either computer if I use IE11.

So, now I have to determine what is different on the two computers.

Possibly an add-on that you both have that might be causing it? Just a suggestion as I don't use Chrome.

I can do it with Chrome! Assume that you have the latest BBC iPlayer Download version. I did have problem with the wrong folder being selected under settings. It was pointed to a folder that did not exist.
