The Nokia N96 will receive its very own iPlayer app next month. We don't yet know whether or not this application is exclusively for the N96. So, while you're waiting to find out, maybe you should check out some of the latest shows from the BBC... Using your current phone.
What you'll need:
A wifi enabled mobile phone.
A good wireless connection.
1) Open up your phone's browser and go to http://www.bbc.co.uk/mobile/iplayer/index.html
2) Find the show you want to watch by navigating through the different categories. Click on the show.
3) When you're at the show's summary, click on where it says 'click to play'. RealPlayer will open and the show will start playing
The videos are encoded in 3gp at a 320x176 resolution and 192kbit/s bitrate. Although the quality isn't as good as the iPhone's version of iPlayer, it's still O.K. for a bit of mobile entertainment before you go to sleep. I hope the N96's iPlayer looks better than this though, otherwise that's one of the main selling points of the N96(atleast for me) gone.
