How to Use BBC iPlayer on Chromecast

These are not part of the Kindle OS which is built on top of Android, but is not exactly the same as Android. We recognize that the Kindle is an important device for BBC iPlayer in terms of usage and we have, on behalf of our users, asked Google to do what they can to support this platform.

One benefit of having Chromecast manage the video streams playing on the television is that we can provide bitrates and video profiles that are more suitable for a big screen than a small screen. We constantly re-evaluate our video and device profiles in the BBC and may change these profiles in the future, but these are what we're using today for our on-demand content:.

We start playback at kbps and switch up or down based on how well the network can handle the stream. This happens continuously while the stream is playing. All of this should be invisible to the user but should mean the stream starts quickly, plays at the best quality possible, and buffers only when network conditions are truly dire.

One capability that won't be there at launch is the ability to play audio-only streams, such as BBC radio programmes. This is something we will be working on in the future.

Chromecast is a new technology. As with all new technology, there are bound to be things we don't get quite right at first or weren't able to fit in in time for launch. One of the things I'm very keen to get right is to make sure we take full advantage of the accessibility features that the Android and iOS platforms afford us.

This stops the application losing connection with the receiver so the phone can continue to control playback. Downloads are enabled when connected to a Wi-Fi network. To give you with the best experience, certain details like your Search History and Added programmes may be stored on your device or securely on BBC servers. To analyse and improve the app, it also uses technologies similar to performance cookies used by the BBC.

You can alter your settings for this on your device. You must be logged in to post a comment. We will be happy to hear your thoughts. Its not tab casting. The support section explains how to set up your router for chromecast.

Or, how can i just ask chromecast extension to just mirror the screen that's playing? Hope that makes sense. Yeah it makes sense to me. I live in the UK and watch US Netflix on my laptop, but if I try and cast it, it doesn't go through and says that's not available over here.
