BBC Iplayer
 
I have installed the BBC Iplayer and downloaded the files to my MAC which I can watch OK.However i wanted to go a step further and transfer them onto my iphone.Although the files appear as MP4's they will not transfer into itunes.Is there any way of getting these files into itunes and then onto my phone.

Any ideas

Hmm interesting as they should of gone into iTunes.

You want ideas ?? Download Handbrake and encode them again using the Toggle Preset in the top right of window then choose your iPhone. Doing this will give you a much better picture for your phone.

Use command>b to add them to the queue and when you press play they will be all there to encode.

HTH

Cheers

You cannot convert them for use on the iphone, they are DRM protected, so will not transfer to itunes or be able to be converted using handbrake

Usually within 24 hours. Once all the interviews are over with the fire-ee they upload it... So try again tommorrow evening and it should be up.. Could be slow in the first few hours though due to too many hits. I always give it a few days to catch it via i player.
