BBC commits to use AIR to make iPlayer run everywhere

Submitted by Falken on

As I spoketh in the past ([node:1490]) so let it be

[the BBC are announcing] that in partnership with Adobe we are building a platform-neutral download client.
Using Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR), we intend to make BBC iPlayer download functionality available on Mac, Linux and Windows for the first time later this year. Whatever platform you use, you'll now be able to download TV programmes from the BBC to watch later - on the train, in the garden, or wherever you like."

Hurrah !
