Watching BBC iPlayer on the TV from my laptop...?


#1

I can see the pictures on my laptop wirelessly through WDTV Live Media Player, should it also be possible for me to stream video… even iPlayer?

Sorry if this has already been covered here…

There’s no in-built functionality on the WDTV Live for watching BBC iPlayer.

Using additional software on your laptop, like TVersity Pro (or PlayOn?), you should be able to set up a media server and gain access to BBC iPlayer (assuming you live in the UK).  It costs around $40.

There’s also an existing topic in the Ideas Lab you can vote on, asking for native support on the WDTV Live:

iPlayer support is apparently already In-Review (may or may not happen) but another vote won’t hurt.  ;)
