We know some Android KitKat users are having issues playing downloaded programmes. We're treating these issues very seriously and have raised them with Google who, so far, haven't been able to provide a fix. We're continuing to work with Google on this and hope the issues will be fixed soon.

We have developed the BBC Media Player app to improve video streaming playback on Android devices. You will need to install this separately from the Google Play marketplace.

To make installation of the BBC Media Player as easy as possible, BBC iPlayer will prompt you to install it when you first play a streamed programme.

The BBC iPlayer app uses standard Android app permissions that are defined by the Google Android platform. The permissions the BBC iPlayer Android app asks to use are:

Read phone status and identity – allows us to securely link downloads to your device, so they cannot be copied to another.

Modify or delete the contents of your USB storage – allows the app to save images, metadata and downloads.

Full network access- allows the app to access the internet.

View network connections - Allows the app to access details about network connectivity i.e. whether the device is on Wi-Fi or 3G/4G.

Prevent phone from sleeping – enables downloads to be performed in the background.

Test access to protected storage – allows the app to check if there is space on your device to download programmes.

    Title says it all. It crashes my phone everytime i try to use it. It crashes more frequently when there's no phone signal and I'm trying to watch a pre-downloaded program. Please fix and I'll rate again
