    How to get iplayer full web version

    For those in the UK wondering how to get the full website version of BBC's player so you can watch live tv here's how:

    Use the stock browser and surf to the iplayer website,
    Then type about:debug into the address bar and press enter,
    Now call up the menu and goto settings,
    You should now have a new tab that says debug select that,
    Now from the list of options select UAString and then desktop,
    Now click back to get to the iplayer website and do a refresh,
    You should now have the full website version. Enjoy.

    I'll move this to apps. Even though its a web based feature, I think others will see this more in apps.

    The easiest way is to download Dolphin HD Browser then you can go into settings and select User Agent: Desktop. Then goto the BBC iplayer and you'll get the full website.

    Hmm I really don't understand why this isn't working for you. Dolphin Browser with user agent set to desktop should work.

    You could always use TV catch up instead, you just need to register but its free. Its slightly lower Res than iplayer but needs must!
