[RELEASE] iPlayer - BBC Video and Music Plugin (UK only!)
So I have this installed nicely and works well (on Dharma) but I'd like to be able to launch this from a key on the remote. My other plugiun (mythbox) works well with a:

Code:
<key id="49">xbmc.runscript(special://home/addons/script.mythbox/default.py)</key>

However the equivalent
Code:
<key id="7">xbmc.runscript(special://home/addons/plugin.video.iplayer/default.py)</key>

throws the foillowing error:

Code:
21:01:11 T:2871708528 M:2854563840    INFO: -->Python script returned the following error<--

Anyone know how to fix this?
@ arad85

could you post a bit more of your log?

It will look like this

the line that is needed is the one that looks like this:
Code:

as this gives the arguments that are passed to the iplayer plugin. (when you press your key the arguments aren't in the expected format).

Nope.. I get:

Yes, I know that doesn't bear any resemblance to the command I expected it to but... (I checked it by changing both the runaddon command and key). There doesn't seem to be a runaddon. If I change it to runplugin I get:

Code:
20:35:30 T:3077764992 M:2961227776   DEBUG: OnKey: 7 pressed, action is xbmc.runplugin(plugin.video.iplayer)

that XBMC.ActivateWindow is a good sign.

runaddon converts the call into an ActivateWindow command, which is what addons like iPlayer are expecting (as they return a list of menu items).

Does nothing happen at all, or does it open the wrong window? again a larger log around that area would be good. Sorry I can't test this directly as I don't use a remote.
AWilco Wrote:that XBMC.ActivateWindow is a good sign.
No it isn't as that's what the key is defined as before it gets redefined. Basically, the xml definition that you suggested gets ignored by xbmc hence why I tried the other definition (after googling a bit).

The wrong window opens and is what the default for the key is without an override in the definitions file. As to debugging, you could define a key on your keyboard to run this Wink - they should be equivalent defines once they work.

Looking at the debug, the script appears to be failing due to missing arguments (it fails on sys.argv[1]). I can't for the life of me work out how to pass arguments (which appear to be '0'. '') using the runscript command.

okay, I tried this out (thanks for the tip!). And the following works for me

Code:
<eight>xbmc.runaddon(plugin.video.iplayer)</eight>
or

Code:
<eight>runaddon(plugin.video.iplayer)</eight>

If this doesn't work, try copying your keyboard.xml file to /.xbmc/userdata/keymaps/ directory as opposed to the /system/keymaps/ directory. For some reason I couldn't get any changes I made to the keyboard.xml file in there to work.

iPlayer is not a script, it's an addon. There is a difference as to how it works, as an addon expects certain input arguments (thus the error here) and also expects XBMC to do something with it's output, which it wouldn't if it were treated as a script.
Runaddon seems to do nothing for me Sad

Got it to work with:

Code:
<key id="7">xbmc.ActivateWindow(VideoFiles,plugin://plugin.video.iplayer)</key>

Thanks for your help Smile
Is there a log file output from this script?

All I get is "Script Failed: IPlayer" if I try to run it. That said, the version in the link seems somewhat out of date (Sept 18), so it could be the wrong version I'm trying to run.

I'm running Dharma on Win7.

I'm running Dharma on Win7.

iPlayer logs to the standard XBMC log (/.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log), so look there for the cause of the error. Post it here and we'll try and help.

you are 1 change out of date with that build, but nothing major changed I don't think. If you want try downloading the latest source from http://xbmc-iplayerv2.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/IPlayer/
Question 
Hi, new to the forum!

I'm having problems getting iPlayer to run on the latest release of XBMC on my jailbroken AppleTV 2nd Gen.

Have placed the 'plugin.video.iplayer' file (v2.3.2) into 'addons' via Transmit software, and can access all menus through Videos/Addons/iPlayer in XBMC.

The problem concerns playing the actual content.
i) It will load the directory of a 'highlighted' program, and then cut out after briefly showing the video.
ii) It won't play live content, and will crash out.

It does flag up a message saying that i'm using an outdated v.XBMC but as far as i'm aware this release is only a day or two old?!

Cheers
try accessing Addon Settings and changing Protocol setting, might work.

Didn't work for me, given up!

I've just re-jailbroken the Apple TV using new greenpois0n rc 6 (untethered), and that's allowed use of some other XBMC plugins that previously weren't working, but still no luck with iPlayer. Tried pretty much all variables in XBMC and file structure Sad

Cheers anyway.
