Heres more,

The link to the xbox Iplayer is

Here are some images...

The python script is also available at this page.




I'm glad I came across this thread. I have been pulling my hair out trying to find an app that does just this.

My mate who has an x-box mentioned that the x-box live facility has an Iplayer plug-in that extracts all media available on the bbc website and presents them as a choice of thumbnails for you to click on and view. Apparently several other plugins service other sites. Also apparently it is written in python.

There is an old thread here...

and they have it working now.

I have extensive safety critical software development knowledge and dable with perl etc, and I would be delighted to get my hands dirty doing such stuff. Problem is I don't know where to start. There is mention of XULRunner and XPCom so I'll be reading up on these.

Cheers for now

Thank you very much Andrew,

Much appreciated.

Sounds like if I can play it over the web via linux and firefox then I can do it via LinuxMCE. I am running ubuntu Intrepid Ibex, and after reading your response watched Dr Who on the Iplayer. I could not get ITV to work with Moonlight. The sight does not seem to recognise moonlight and still asks me to download silverlight. Anyway thats a story for another forum, and I guess will work given time.

Iplayer is certainly enough for me to make a start.

Many thanks again, and will most likely be back when I start getting my hands dirty.

p/s the links to your websites report a problem so I was unable to browse. Went to the German site instead. I'm gaining interest so hopefully these pages will be up again soon.

This looks very interesting, and I wish to start a project up building a LinuxMCE system.

But, before I start can someone confirm that with LiveMCE I will be able to watch WebTV such as 4OD, BBC Iplayer, ITV Player and other web tv facilities from my Television?

Apologies if this is a very straight forward question, but nowhere seems to spell this out as a feature.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
