It is as follows C Drive Users User My Videos BBC I Player Downloads

How can I tell what sort of file it is

How did you try to play it?

It is usually a wmv or avi file. You need to look at the file extension.

Windows Media Player should play them if not try VLan VLC Media Player or K-Lite Codec Pack. (Use Google to find a secure download).

Hi Lazarus

Just shows I have not downloaded anything from BBC iPlayer in the last few months. I will have a look at this when I get a few minutes.

I haven't done it for a long time but I seem to recall you need Adobe Air installed for downloading from IPlayer click here

Yes you need Adobe Air to download in the original BBC iPlayer but I read somewhere that BBC had issued a new version which does not need it so I guess it depends on which version you are running.
