BBC iPlayer Desktop is a lightweight software application built specifically for helping you view BBC programmes and download them for offline viewing.

It boasts a clean and intuitive interface that gives users the possibility to select between a wide range of radio and video shows.

Basically, it proves to be extremely easy to work with this tool, as most of the operations can be carried out with just a few clicks.

BBC iPlayer Desktop enables users to play or stop the current selection and adjust the volume.

What’s more, you can limit the downloading process to a specified size, view information about the free and used space in the library, run the program at Windows startup, and allow the program to send statistics to the BBC, as well as schedule the downloading process at a specified time interval.

BBC iPlayer Desktop features encryption options for helping parents control the type of programmes the children have access to. This way, you can set up passwords and add secret questions and answers.

Since there aren’t any configuration settings even rookies can make the most out of every single built-in feature.

As it would be expected from such a small utility, it manages to remain light on the system resources, so it doesn’t burden the overall performance of the computer, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.

All things considered, BBC iPlayer Desktop offers a simple software solution when it comes to viewing your favourite TV programmes and listening to various online radio stations. It can be mastered by all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
