Hi folks,
Great add-on :-)

Just one issue. When I seek (fast forward or rewind ), jump to time or resume play, the audio comes back but the video is frozen.

Any ideas?

I know that Tunlr works for all non-live stuff yet you can watch live with this method:

https://tunlr.net/forums/topic/how-to-bb...ing-tunlr/

Yet it seems this method only works with the HDS streams not the RTMP the plugin is attempting to do.

Is there anyway to get the HLS streams to be implemented into the plugin?

EDIT: Just seen in another thread, XBMC doesn't support HDS. So I guess nevermind.

First post here, and can I say thank you! Get plugin and working well on my little Pi (Model B rev 2)

Also using tunlr.net DNS for catchup and don't need the live as I have them for free via Satellite STB also running Linux based OS.

Also interested in having the subtitles stable, not sure I even turned them on ?? Is it via settings ? Need to look better, Anyways it's not because I'm deaf but just used to having them on the sat box and also the volume is set low at night and I can still follow a programme.

I installed xbmc (openelec) in a virtual machine and I'm using tunlr.net, but I cannot see any stream (they play fine in the browser and I can download them with get_iplayer).
This is the log:

Try xbmc Gotham alpha and see if it is resolved. Not a plugin issue but there has been at least one rtmp fix that could be related since frodo

Thanks I'll give it a try and report back. I forgot to mention in running 2.5.4 under Openelec 3.2.4 on a Foxconn micro PC.
Hi,

Just tried the latest openelec Gotham nightly and the problem is still there for me.

handshake failed, which may be due to your ip and geolocking, a temporary problem with the cdn, or a problem with your version of librtmp. However, I cannot offer any support for using the plugin outside of the UK.

OK, I understand. I was just considering my options, now that with the switch to astra 2e I lost all bbc channels.
get_iplayer to the rescue Wink

Edit: most probably a problem with the librmtp version in openelec: I installed xbmc in a mageia 4 virtual machine and it is streaming with no (apparent) problem.

Here is the log.
http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=127376

These are the steps I followed :

1) Booted openelec latest Gotham (today's )
2) Loaded iplayer
3) Went to BBC One > Outnumbered > Episode 1
4) Resumed play at around 4 minutes in.

At this point, the audio resumes but the video doesn't start. The screen remains at the xbmc GUI.

Must be an xbmc issue - you could try turning off crystal hd and use software decoding and see if that makes any difference. Not sure I can help any further.
No problem. I'll play around with a few settings. Thanks :-)
I have the iplayer plugin and for the most part it is great.

I had an issue today that I would like to solve. I am able to skip forward 30 seconds at a time but anymore than that fails; it doesn't go any faster than that.

I'm trying to watch the winter olympics, the program is 3?hours long I want to watch what is at the end of the stream so skipping 30 secs at a time is not an option. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,

Try forcing "Limelight" for the streams, this was the only option that worked for me...
Yes, I tried forcing limelight in the openelec virtual machine, but it made no difference. No worries though, get_iplayer works fine.
First of all - thanks for this great app

My setup:

Rasberry Pi
OpenELEC 3.2.4
iPlayer addon 2.5.4

Others have noted that some items seem to play and others not, and it seems random.

After al lot of mucking around, it seems to have a lot to do with the "resume point"

I will use Bargain Hunt on BBC 1 as an example.

On a clean install, I can play any episode I like. I can stop it and resume it as many times as I like.

Then if I stop say S22E7 half way I can play a different episode - say S28E19 and that works fine.

BUT THEN the trouble starts - if I stop this episode, not only can't I start it again, I cant resume S22E7 either.

Selecting "Play from start" works, but only up to the resume point, then the stream closes

I have a log file but it is very long.

Would be happy to email.

Thx

Tim
