Remembered a new bug I have seen for ages that I never reported in the BBC iPlayer ap.
Already noted by me and others are:
- app memory leaks crippling later UI/video playing (I assume noted by developers)
- appearence of the old version of the iPlayer app when programmed off a remote control button (forwared to developers)
The new… “feature” is to do with the new FF/FR mechanism introduceded in the player at this firmware release. When moving forwards or backwards the video freezes. No updates, even jerkily, as u move back/forward thru video. The time elapsed updates, but not the video window. Checked even after a hard boot (ie no memory leaking can already have occured). Linked over Wifi N, showing standard res video only - no HD - which playes fine with no glitches.
