[RELEASE] iPlayer - BBC Video and Music Plugin (UK only!)
please turn on debugging (including the extra debugging option in the addon settings) - put the settings to 3200, choose a hd program, and post a debug log please (using pastebin or similar).
Just installed a fresh Beta4 build, installed latest iplayer from zip. Same thing is happening, HD videos only playing SD. Bit annoying, as I had a near-perfect beta2 setup going. Rolleyes oh well..

exobuzz, thx for the tip, I'll be doing that. (determined to get to the bottom of this).

I have a quick question regarding this plugin which will determine if I dive into the world of XBMC.

I currently have a two machine setup with one machine VPNing to the UK in order to watch the BBC iPlayer. I switch video source on the TV depending on which 'local' TV I want to watch.

Is there any way to simplify this with XBMC? Such as the VPNing machine presenting the iPlayer content to the primary machine?

Thanks
Question - I don't see this in the Dharma respository - is this normal?

Doesn't look like you've installed it properly.

/home/andersja/.xbmc/addons/IPlayer/

should be -

/home/andersja/.xbmc/addons/plugin.video.iplayer/

Ah thanks - I just downloaded the latest from the website and used XBMC's "install from zip file" function. Bug in XBMC or in the packaging of the addon?

It isn't really designed to be installed via install from zip as such. I could fix this I guess when i create the zips by renaming the folder, but since hitcher has it as an addon on his repo, I didn't feel the need. There are instructions on the site how to install it and it does mention the renaming. (Bearing in mind I also support xbmc4xbox and xbmc dharma users - so if it was renamed xbmc4xbox users would have to rename it)
I'm also unable to get any HD content to play in HD, running Dharma 4 and 2.3.2.
and I'm happy to help when I'm given the required information Smile
no problem, I'll post it shortly, was just seeing if there was already a solution that hadn't been mentioned yet.
Without a log the only thing I can suggest is that you set it to use akamai as a stream source preference instead of "any" or limelight. there is a bunch of code that could be improved when it comes to choosing the stream source/quality stuff. also some hd streams are on level3 which isnt enabled currently. But certainly akamai normally has the full range of stream qualities. limelight I think may only have up to 1500kbit.
Side note: this might be of interest to non-UK XBMCers:

Switching to Akamai seemed to do the trick. Have to confess I dont really understand the different stream types. HD now streaming fine, SD also fine.
I recommend this solution. thanks!

iplayer going international... do you think they'll lend us Hulu in return? Wink
