BBC-IPlayer now works without Flash

BBC IPlayer now offers HTML5 as an alternative to Flash. This really good news; it means that I can access the programmes directly on OpenBSD with Firefox or Chromium. If you don't have Flash on your machine the BBC will detect this and provide HTML5 instead. (I think that if you do have Flash you have to opt for HTML5.)

This is still in beta but it works well for me. Some things aren't yet available but most are.

If there are problems, see Firefox: enabling HTML5 for BBC iPlayer
