The answer is no.
Googling around it appears that V1.5 of iplayer.wgz, even with the edits, does not work. It appears that we need V1.0 of iplayer.wgz. I have no idea where to get this.
Could anyone upload this? - even in orginal form?

Thanks for this.
Do you know where I can get the version 1.0?

Ok, here's my problem. I'm using an E71 and downloaded the v1.0 iplayer (thanks for the link AzAzzo) which loads up via 3G or WiFi. I'm then stuck with the same 'needs wifi' message unless I've connected via wifi.

Apologies if I'm being ignorant but was the v1.0 iplayer I installed modded to allow 3G access or not?

To quote 'unregistered' from a different thread:

S60 IPlayer works *perfectly* on ANY S60 device (AFAIK) with WebRunTime, and perfectly on a 3G device, WiFi is NOT needed.

The edits to make it do this are quick and easy (5 mins tops), and can be found in this thread from the 1st October:

I have had iPlayer running on my 6220 Classic, with no problems (and with the original firmware by the way), since then, and I know it's over 3G as it doesn't have WiFi hardware :)

Am I missing something obvious here?

I am using N95 8GB, i have version 1.0 and am also getting the wifi only message.

Please can somebody advise me exactly what i need to do to be able to stream over 3G.

Thanks very much

Scott, read page 2 of this thread...

scott.herring 15-10-2008 03:17 PM

Hi, just read page 2... it says for handsets OTHER THAN n95.

Should i be reading Beardyweirdy's post on page 4??? Is that what you meant to point me to? Page 2 doesn't explain how to get rid of the wifi message.

I will try and follow the instructions from page 4 tonight!

I have downloaded version 1.5.0 from BBC's website. This is the only one I have ever downloaded and have made no modifications to it. My phone is N95 8GB with v.30 firmware on 3UK.

I have had no problems in running the application via wi-fi or 3g. Both work equally well and have had no errors in playing any media. Hero wasn't available but that is down to the BBC rather than the phone.

For those who don't know how to install to the N95 8GB here are the instructions:
1. Click on this link and save the file
2. Transfer the file using Nokia PC Suite to install the app on the phone
3. Go to the file manager and select the memory card to browse
4. Go to the bottom where it has a 'Widget' folder
5. Open the widget folder and install the iplayer.wgz file
6. Go to applications (under menu) and run the application

Installing iplayer.wgz file on Nokia E61i
I have successfully downloaded iplayer.wgz file via PC Suite to my E61i to \Widget\iplayer.wgz but it will not install. The wgz file contains a question mark icon and when I click on it, the file is opened via Zip Manager.

Has anyone been successful in installing a wgz on an E61i-1 (RM-227 3.0633.69.00)

Thanks in advance

iPlayer on a Nokia e90
Hi, I don't seem to be able to install the iPlayer widget on my e90; When I install it with the PCSuite, It says to finish off the installation on the handset, but nothing happens.

I don't get the iPlayer icon appear anywhere. It does however copy the .wgz to the widget folder on my phone. But trying to run this just opens it in the Zip utility.

I have the latest firmware (according to the PCSuite Updater)

Can anyone help me please?

E71 - iplayer
I have managed to get it loaded on the E71 - thanks for thr instructions. It works all the way until I get the "switch to wifi..." message (which I already am anyway). I see that this may be because of the new version of the file... so, does anyone have the old version they can email or upload somewhere???? Thanks in advance.

Download iPlayer
I don't know how to get around the wifi-only restriction as such but you could use get_iplayer at to download the iPhone version of the programme without any DRM (possibly on your PC) then watch that on your symbian phone. get_iplayer supports almost all platforms and is open source. You can even get it to schedule downloading your favorite programmes automatically.
