View Full Version : BBC iplayer now available for iphone (and hacks)

13th March 2008, 11:28 AM
I just read this slashdot article here about how to hack firefox or safari (http://apple.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/03/12/2012239)
to trick it into thinking you are using an iphone. Then you right click the movie file and it is downloaded to your 'puter.

However, I can't work it out, can anyone take me through by extended steps?

How to do this on OS X / Safari:
Go to Debug menu and set the user agent to 'Mobile Safari 1.0.'
Go to the BBC site and select a video.
Right click and say 'Save as source...I can't find the debug menu

And can somone guide thru teh same for firefox?

please, pretty please.

Alas, it still doesn't seem to break the UK only part of it.

Or am I missing something?
