The X-Fi2 isn't in the list of supported players. And from my experience it doesn't work, so I'm pretty sure it's not possible to watch iPlayer programmes on the ZEN X-Fi2. Has anyone else got this working?

I have no idea what it is, but if it's video files, which it has to be to be able to access with the player. then can't you just convert them into a working format? Or am I misunderstanding the issue here?

BBC iPlayer is basically a web based TV catch-up service for UK residents, you can watch TV from the past seven days on it for free, and download them to watch for 30 days. You can also download the programmes for portable devices (such as the ZEN X-Fi and the ZEN) but the X-Fi2 is not supported. I'm unsure why, but I believe it has something to do with the player not supporting the DRM... and it is that DRM protection that prevents you from watching the programme after 30 days, so therefore conversion is unfortunately not an option.

I see, then it's just a question of removing the DRM if you want to use it on the X-Fi2. Not really the perfectly legal way to do it but, it should work. I've seen several softwares for DRM removal, but never used one since I simply don't have any DRM protected files to begin with.

That would be possible, and it's worth a shot! :P
What program would be best to strip DRM from video files? Do you know??
