I downloaded Adobe Flash Player, but BBC I player would not stream. BBC help section said that I could not access BBC I Player with Windows 7 64 bit.

I have Win7 64bit and have no problem accessing BBCi Player.

When I went on to BBCi Player a few moments ago it did pop-up an update to Adobe Flash Player, but all went as normal.

I too have W7 64 bit and don't have a problem. Which browser are you using?

Are you using internet explorer? If so make sure you are using the 32bit version!

Have no idea what the problem is for you, but I've been relegated to the PC to watch football on Iplayer. Never watched Iplayer before, but it's working perfectly OK for me W7 64 bit

Check which version of the two supplied versions of IE is being used, if its the 64bit then the easiest option is to use 'Win 7 64bits' 32bit version of IE.

If that makes sense!

Miké - I've already stated that it works on 64 bit of IE9 and on 32 bit version. Changing version shouldn't make a difference.

It does if the OP only has the 32bit version of Flash Player installed!

Thanks. The problem was an over zealous anti virus programme which blocked a lot of websites. I have removed it and installed a free anti virus proframme and everything now works with Windows 7 64 bit
