I don't have a problem watching TVCatchup on my Samsung Galaxy S2 as long as you have adobe flash installed for smoothest performance, as it streams just fine in the browser using network or wi-fi connections.
Can i ask wether TVcatchup on a browser from a say dual-core/hi-spec device such as an iPhone 4/S or the Galaxy S2 "uses" (or requires) Adobe Flash? or is it HTML5? I'm actually gearing towards buying the upcoming iPad 3 now as it is likely to be the standard for the rest of the 12 months and with really good developer support i think its a way forward.
I'm still gonna be an Android fan but until fragmentation issues are not resolved then i would have to stick the iPad.
puniksem, try http://m.tvcatchup.com as it does not use flash.
gino_76ph, I could be wrong, but the "app" is neither Adobe Flash nor HTML5 as far as I am aware they are web technologies and as such an application would use the default player.
As for Android fragmentation I am yet to find that is the case, I still believe its an excuse for developers with lack of Android experience and prefer to stick to what they know iOS - but that's just a theory.
" You might very well think that; I couldn't possibly comment. "
Actually, quoting an Android developer, "Android is crap at streaming". lol
I was reading last year that they were releasing apps on the market to disable the internal streaming engine and releasing apps to replace it because it was so bad and the worst affected were Galaxy Tab's
Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) is the OS that will change this hopefully
That is the hope. That Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 will change all that. "One OS to rule them all" like one said. But they alos need to address specs & hardware. they also need to be consistent in order to compete with iOS. You wonder why did they release say Street Fighter IV for the iOS its because maybe it is far easier to port with a "universal" OS for all APple device.
