That's what I suspected...cheers mate!
So I changed from 2.4.18 back to 2.4.17 - BUT I don't know how to change / edit the .SWF thingy , couldn't find the addon directory - Im a Raspberry Pi user and not a LINUX uber god and recommend RASPBMC to people new to R_Pi, but this makes it look techy again Sad

Can someone advise or is there an updated package coming 2.4.19

Thanks in advance
I have added a potential fix for the "Resume" issue on

This has worked well for me over the last few days - none of the nasty lock-ups at all.

thanks dlake02, will give it a try
Hello,

I'm just getting started with my raspbmc and I've installed iplayer plug in. It seems it was able to play a program correctly, but 90% of the time it fails. When I look in the logs I see an error like:
16:43:38 T:3041370752 NOTICE: COMXPlayer: Opening: rtmp://bbcmedia.fcod.llnwd.net:1935/ ...

Any clue to how this might be resolved would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

Hi dlake. For those of us not clever enough to use a diff, is it correct that the code which appears in the diff is to be inserted as new lines at line 1074 into iplayer2.py in the lib folder of the plugin?

thanks

You are using 2.4.17. Try the latest version. You'll experience a new error (resume lock) which is fixable - look back through the last couple of pages in this thread. You need to go to plugn settings and click the force release lock button. Good luck!

No - insert into default.py at line 1077.

Take out the top line and the "<" and make sure that the tabulation is correct. Python is horribly sensitive to where things are placed....

The programme continues to play fine but the box never disappears.
If i click the cancelbutton i get a message that the stream failed to play and when i then click OK everything stops and i am back to the iplayer menu.
Tried changing to poer 80 - that just broke everything.

any clues anyone?

I have the exact same issue as this but on linux. I tried downgrading to .17 and doing the SWF change but now it wont even play anymore with no debug info. Anyone have a solution?

Yes. Worked for me. Thanks dlake :-)
I have an issue where iPlayer opens within XBMC and I can watch live TV using it no problem but any programme listed under any of the channels, although there by name, once opened shows no episodes to choose from. For example, Top Gear shows 5 episodes on the main page but when I then select Top Gear to open the actual list where the details of each episode would be there is just a "--" symbol, no 5 episodes to choose from. I've tried restarting, I've tried resume lock release and I have made no changes to the XBMC system itself. This was working perfectly so thought maybe BBC had made some change or other but I see I am the only one with the issue, on here at least!
Thanks for the great addon.

Works great using OpenELEC. I have an issue where when I play something for the first time it then disappears from the any of the lists. Didn't know if this was a plugin setting issue or something to do with OpenELEC? Any suggestions?
Is there any way to put a volume attenuation in the plugin, as iPlayer is much louder than LiveTV and so I have to reduce the volume from around -25 to -45 when switching between the two (I'm using <ac3downmixgain>24.0</ac3downmixgain> to get the overall volume up to nearer my other sources), which is no fun, especially as auto-repeat doesn't work on the volume buttons (OS issue apparently) so that I have to press them 15-20 times to get it where it needs to be?

Also, I'm finding that despite having it set to open on "Main Menu" it tends to open where it last was, such as TV - Popular.

I'm having the same problem. Using iPlayer addon version 2.4.18 in openelec 3.1.15. The any show plays but with a dialogue box on top saying "iplayer 80%" "opening stream". I've tried downgrading to 2.4.17 without success. Any ideas how I can fix this?

live TV doesnt seem to work at all.

do i need to roll back to 2.4.17 and then add in the new swf line in that iplayer2 file?


Hi,
I'm not an expert so maybe someone else will give you a better fix eventually, but i had this problem and i've managed to get it working. Go to the add on settings, click on the advanced tab, set the number of days to keep resume points to 0. Hopefully this will work for you.

Hi

I am running Iplayer v 2.4.17 on a new Raspberry Pi, OpenElec v 3.6.11

It runs fine for a period but the video hangs periodically (not every time). I cannot fast forward etc, eventually it may drop the video all together and return me to the last iplayer menu. Sometimes the video just stops and I need to stop I and start again

I have changed the following Iplayer video config to see if I can fix it but still have the same problem. All other settings are as default

Video stream ti use = [email protected]
Socket timeout to none (0)
Disable http cache = yes
Enable debug output = “yes”

I am running via a smartdns server which appears to be OK on laptops etc and I have a 2mb ADSL connection

I have tried 2.4.18 with the same problems and Itv player is fine

Any help would be appreciated
