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.
Here's a list of devices that are currently able to receive video downloads: http://iplayerhelp.external.bbc.co.uk/help/mobile_tablet/android_downloads_device
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.

- We've improved how you resume programmes on Chromecast: now if you are casting to your TV and return to the app you will be able to pick up where you left off.
- Radio users will now be directed to the BBC iPlayer Radio app where they will experience the best of BBC Radio in an app tailored to that experience. Users on older devices will be directed to the iPlayer Radio website.
We've also included a number of bug fixes.
As always please feedback any comments to @bbciplayer
