iPlayer opens up to Mac and Linux users
The much-anticipated Flash based revamp of the BBC's iPlayer website has now gone live.

In October, the BBC confirmed it was working with Adobe to use Flash to deliver the catch-up TV component of iPlayer over the web, making it available to users of any operating system that can run Flash - including Macs and GNU-Linux.

The move is part of a wider plan to deliver most of the BBC website's audio and video content via Flash; currently, such content is offered mainly using Real and Windows Media.

A version of iPlayer's download manager compatible with Windows Vista has also been made available today.
