Did you try to play back from the iPlayer app rather than just opening the downloaded file?

On a windows device I got a similar message trying to open a download that played fine in the app. 

(sorry that's really badly expressed)

Perhaps I did not explain myself clearly.  I downloaded the programmes using MY INTERNET CONNECTION then took the tablet to my friend who DOES NOT HAVE AN INTERNET CONNECTION hoping he could watch the programmes on my tablet.


I downloaded using the I player app and tried to play them on the same device.  I am not familiar whith ChromeCast.  Thank you for your input.

I assume we're talking the BBC iPlayer.

Are you downloading and playing back using the iplayer download app?

and on the same device?

and not trying to playback on ChromeCast?

How on earth do you download anything without internet?  If there's some trick you know about please share it.  I could do with saving the money I spend for my half a meg service.
