Journal Journal: BBC iplayer

There's been a lot of talk recently about the BBCs iplayer.

There seems to be two key points:
- the use of DRM
- Available only for Windows.

I agree that DRM is a pain but can understand why it is necessary. The lack of cross platform player is more of a valid point.

I've found some interesting links about it:
