BBC iPlayer Buffering On WiFi/Ethernet Connection

Go to solution

Hi there,

 

I have BT Infinity but for some reason BBC iPlayer just drops out at about 10 minutes into watching something, especially if in HD. I have this on ethernet sometimes but mostly on a wireless connection. I'm not sure it's BBC's end but couldn't find any problems that people had reported on that.

 

Any ideas what might be causing this?

If you switch to SD does it still happen?

Trying to watch Wimbledon here on SD and occasional buffering. It's bizarre because I can watch HD 1080p on YouTube fine.

Yeah, sometimes I can watch for a good 15 minutes or so, sometimes only for a minute.

Iplayer has had problems in the past struggling with high demand
