I don't think there are any Gnash developers in the UK, but if anyone
would like me to go to this meeting to represent Gnash, I'd be happy
to do so :-)

Just in case anyone missed it, there's a bunch of developers trying to
bring BBC iPlayer content to the Xbox1 and Wii. The main thread can be
found here -

I spoke to our iPlayer team and I can mention a couple of things.

1. The ability to play BBC iplayer content via a Xbox360 using the
media extender system is being considered and maybe be turned on in
the near future. This means Dan and CW in these threads will be very
happy -

2. We are looking to build iplayer for the Wii, iPhone and others by
the end of this quarter. But with the device experience in mind.

3. My thoughts about bringing the iplayer to other devices was
correct. If you don't break the DRM on the download version,
re-transcode the streaming version, make the content available outside
of the UK (break the GeoIP) and finally not screw with the actual
content streams. Your able to build what you like, for any platform
under the backstage licence.

4. Last but not least, we would like to invite some of the developers
working on iPlayer for other devices into the BBC, so you can talk
openly about what your doing. The iplayer team would attend and would
love to show you what there also working on too. Who knows maybe we
could help each other?

So if your building a iplayer for an exotic device platform, do get in touch.
