BBC iPlayer app constantly buffering/locking up

Question

Anyone have a problem with this app running on LG 4K TV?

iPlayer app constantly buffers or locks up

I switch to NOW TV box (not app) & can watch  iPlayer without an issue.

Also NETFLIX & other catch up apps  work without any buffering or locking.

Interested to hear your thoughts....

Not that I use BBC iPlayer a huge amount, but on the occasions I have, I have not had an issue with buffering, lock ups or the app crashing.

My TV = UH650V - webOS FW V. 04.30.40

Sorry for the late response but I recently bought an LG TV and am seeing the same issue with the BBC iPlayer app.  Often it will pause with a black screen and the buffering animation; sometimes it will recover but other times it gives up with a "Something went wrong playing this programme" message and error code 02100.   Once it has given the error message the only way I can get it to work again is to completely exit the iPlayer and restart it.

I suspect a bug in the app.

    • Question: Pages reload on switch

      Hi, I own an LG Smart TV (43LK5900PLA) and I seem to have an issue with the browser. If I have more than one tab opened if I switch between them, they refresh / reload. The thing is this doesn't always happen and I haven't been able to figure out why. One thing is for sure - it is really, really, REALLY annoying and makes browsing the internet impossible on websites that have pop-ups. You may ask why. Well, because they usually open a pop-up whenever you make your first click. Pop-ups open in a new tab and the browser automatically switches to it. After closing (or going to the initial website tab) it reloads and .. well.. the pop-up again. Also, it's impossible to check e-mails and open links too. Same story. You click on a link, a new tab opens and when you go back to the e-mail it reloads and the e-mail is opened no more. Like I said, this doesn't happen every time. 90% of the times, regardless of what sites I open, of what I have opened when the browser opens. The LG webOS is up to date and I've tried clearing the history and 'clearing the cache ' in the browser. Nothing works so I'm pretty disappointed. Thanks in advance.

    • Question: IPlayer / Freeview Play

      I have a strange problem with freeview play and Iplayer on my 55 E6 I need help first is this the correct place to post 
      The problem started about 2 months ago 
      If i select a BBC program from the past by scrolling through the freeview guide Iplayer starts as usual But when it starts playing there is no picture or sound if subtitles are on you can see the the subtitles going by but no sound of picture.

      if i start iplayer using the app UI to watch the same program it works fine 
      all other catch up works through the freeview guide 
      If i am watching a bbc program and press green to restart the program it works ok also
      I have contacted Freeview they told me to contact BBC 
      I have contacted bbc iplayer help they told me to contact LG 

      I contacted John Lewis they sent an engineer he said he would report the issue to LG 
      I am told LG said they did not see it as a problem and would do nothing 
      I spoke to John Lewis again and was told LG tvs do not support Iplayer any more 

      I also have a 55uh850v that I use in my cinema as a 3d monitor this tv is olso webos3 this tv has exactly the same problem 
      I also have a 49UH610v this works perfectly 
      I also have a OLED55B7V this has the freeview guide disappearing problem that is well documented in "LG TV Freeview Play" forum but when its working the Iplayer works ok
      I have 70mg fibre broad band and the tvs are on wired ethernet 

      I do not know what to do next
