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: Player problem

      I used to cast from ace stream directly to my UJ6300 and I had no problems until a few days ago when the TV got an update for WebOS 3.7 I think. Now whenever I try to cast to the TV it just shows a black screen on the "Web App Viewer" app, I was wondering if maybe I could set a different player as default player when streaming from my phone instead of the Web App Viewer, as when I play from other sources it starts the "Photo&Video" player.  Otherwise I think I would have to downgrade the OS to the previous stable version.  Anyone else having this problem?

    • 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
