BBC Media Player works with BBC websites and applications to provide video and audio playback on your Android phone.

Once you have downloaded this application, continue to use your favourite BBC websites and apps on your Android device as normal. Whenever you play any video or audio the BBC Media Player will launch and handle playback of the content.

You may notice that when you install the app it asks you for permission to access your phone's network communication, phone calls, and system tools.

These are standard Android app permissions that are defined by the Google Android platform. The 3 permissions the BBC Media Player app asks to use are:

• Network Communication - full internet access.
Granting this permission provides the BBC Media Player app with access to the internet so it can play programmes.

• Phone Calls - read phone state and identity.
Granting this permission provides the BBC Media Player app with phone communication status and notifies the application if the phone rings or a phone call is in progress. We only use this permission to ensure that the BBC Media Player pauses if you receive a phone call and temporarily reduces its audio when you receive a txt message while watching a programme. The BBC Media Player app does not access or store any personal information, phone numbers or IMEI numbers.

• System tools - preventing phone from sleeping, retrieve running applications.
Granting this permission provides the BBC Media Player app with the ability to prevent the phone going to sleep when you are watching a programme.

    They really need to sort out the quality - it's virtually unwatchable.

    Worked perfectly for last 6 months on my nexus 7. Since auto upgrade last week programs work for a few minutes then slow right down. Bring back previous version immediately please.
