It appears that it has temporarily left us without BBC iPlayer (apologies to Funky D for the above incorrect advice) The update gives us Adobe Flash Lite 3.0, which iPlayer is not compatible with. Both Nintendo and the BBc have pledged to fix the problem as quickly as ;possible, so either iPlayer will be updated to regain its compatibility with the Wii, or we can expect a further update from Ninty. Minor hitch, hopefully. Here's a useful thread to follow on the BBc site if you wish to keep updated: http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/mbiplayer/F13735683?thread=6893890 There is a problem with the update.

It really is great news, both for people who have yet to get the channel and those of us who paid for it as we are effectively getting a refund. Nice one Nintendo! :) Must of missed this blog, as I was just about to post this on the forum, until I found it here.

The success with iPlayer varies greatly depending on other things. Try again at a different time, and make sure nothing else is using the wifi connection at the same time. Some people never have much luck, others have great success. It's all to do with how much priority your router allocates to the wii for bandwidth etc. I find it works very well in the day but rubbish in the evenings (unfortunately). Bear in mind that as the Wii has no internal memory to speak of, there is no buffer. The BBC assure us they are working to improve the service for wii users though.

I can load the page, but when i try and watch something it just sits there with the loading "circle" forever. I read that the new IC has upgraded the flash player, could this be a problem, or as a wii newbie have i done something wrong? Bought a wii on Friday.. awesome..
