I believe the code was integrated by jmarshall, but I remember him saying he didn't get a chance to test it on the XBOX hardware. Could be something really simple.
I compiled A build for the xbox last night and gave it a try today the plugin seems to work but it wouldn't play for me. not sure what revishion but like said updated and built last night

http://pastebin.com/m2af896df

the other than play back It seemed sluggish when retrieving show listing as much as four seconds retrieve one show

it wouldn't retrieve data cbbc this afternoon must be off during school hours no point bunking off then Laugh

the pc build worked with a little buffering hear and there but it seems to crash at the end of a show.

On my XBOX it takes no more than a couple of seconds per show... but I'm using an older T3CH build. All those 'xbp__wfopen = untested' errors are intriguing...
Probably is something small if it`s functioning well on the linux build.

I`m just glad that the Dev`s added it and are always willing to implement new ideas.

I`m sure it will be attended to soon enough.

I noticed that a few revs ago JM merged a lot of stuff from the Linux branch. It did include atleast 1 file with RTMP in the filename. Anyone tested?
works on win32 and Linux but not on xbox with the plugin.
There is now another new t3ch build (XBMC SVN 2008-07-15 (15th of July 2008) rev14095) which I've installed on my xbox and tried the updated plugin linked in a zip file a few posts up. I can navigate to BBC One/Two etc and when I select them nothing happens.

(Just in case that helps Big Grin )
Beware, there are serious problems running any videos with the new build. I've gone back to 30/6.

Please post debug logs. Otherwise it's no help whatsoever!
Silly question; what is the difference between a script and a plugin?

When I run the iplayer plugin it doesnt even start (when run as a script), it say "(running)" for a few seconds, then stops.

Also, where are the log file? so I can give it to you.
plugin how to from the stuck topic in this forum

/QUOTE]

Read what Marlboroman posted, but basically:

A plugin is a way for us to browse a hierarchical filesystem on an Internet page, and is not meant to be used as a script (it just happens to be written in Python).

Basically, a plugin (for video) will show up under your videos view as a source, and you can access the contents of the Internet page that way.

A script is a standalone "app" that does, well, basically anything.
Just to let you know, there's a new version of the plugin up:
http://xbmc-iplayer.googlecode.com/svn/t...player.zip

The BBC have changed the metadata a bit (emptying the 'version' segment of the metadata XML), so this employs a different and slower way to get the information needed for streaming. I'm not yet sure if this is a permanent change the BBC have made.

Work on the flashier script version continues, held up by some really bizarre Python bugs that are proving impossible to debug...
The link just contains A UI folder. I got the update from your site will give it a try cheers mate
