Nexus 7, Flash and iplayer.

Are there any Nexus 7 users that can play BBC iPlayer. Due to Adobe Flash Player being withdrawn the BBC have brought out its own Media Player. I bought my N7 a few days ago anticipating to be able to watch it, but the media player is incompatible with Jellybean 4.2. I should have read the BBC blog:

Here first I suppose.

Just interested to know if anyone else is disappointed.

FE. If this is the wrong forum you have my permission to move it!!

There is a work around here but seems a bit fraught.

Officially the BBC iPlayer is not compatible with Jellybean 4.2

Did yours run right from the start? As you can see from the links above the problem is general.

Think I am on 4.1, having looked, and not 4.2 as I stated.

Will see if I can find an update.

For info there has been an update within the last two days and BBC Media Player is now compatible with Jellybean 4.2+.

iplayer is up and running. (:-))
