Hi, been lurking for a few days since I got myself a new G3 from Maplins in the UK, love the tablet but I'm having problems getting the BBC iPlayer to work.

When accessing it from the web it works of a fashion - the audio works fine but the video runs as if it's in fast forward - getting further and further out of sync and within a minute the video appears to be 5 minutes or so ahead of the audio!

I've tried looking for an iPlayer app but that seems to automatically redirect to the website, opening up the browser and I end up with the same problem.

Does the iPlayer work with the G3 currently, has anyone a link to a working version I could install? Or is there a workaround? I've not found the app on any of the alternative markets I've tried so far, including the otherwise excellent 1Mobile one. I've got the iPlayer app on my Samsung Galaxy SII phone running ICS, it runs great on there but I haven't found a way to share the app with the G3

Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

I have it working great on my 7 G3....no issue at all...try changing dpi as issue you reporting had on our advent vega and changing the dpi from 120 to 160 sorted it...

ย 

As stated I have no issues on our 7 G3 on either the website or the official BBC iPlayer app...

ย 

try TVcatch.com droid app as that works to...

ย 

Also do a backup of the iplayer app on your phone copy it to your g3 and install from sdcard or where ever you copied it too...

ย 

Which G3 is it by the way???

Your problem is the same as the g2 suffers with ics. I've not been able to find a solution unfortunately. Seems to be flash related. Netflix won't work either

It's the 9 G3 I've got - how do you change the DPI?

ย 

I've installed TVCatchup, that works a treat on the G3! ๐Ÿ™‚

ย 

Apart from it only seeming to charge from the supplied charger (not via USB or a micro-usb charger) and slightly below-par wifi performance I love the G3! ๐Ÿ˜€

tvcatchups great.... as to dpi do a search on market for dpi changer its freeware. my 7g3 charges fine through usb so may be an issue with your tab... wifi is a little below par on 7g3 like yours... but loving it..

I've tried now with a few cables/chargers but no joy so far, wonder if I have got a duff one in that respect? Slightly annoying due to the fairly short battery life but liveable, just means another charger to lug about!

if you have it still under warrantee (you should have as they as so damn new) just return it for a new one......

ย 

As to battery hmmmm can manage 6 hours of constant use on ours(just)....But it is a little downer on them....And may be the only reason for returning ours!

Current drawn across usb is very low compared with the adaptor that can provide up to 2amps. I can only charge off usb if unit is off. If on, all the usb power goes to powering the screen and apps. Does that help?
