Re: Issue with BBC iPlayer

it might be expired already (the token). Did you try it immediately after it failed in the log?

Re: Issue with BBC iPlayer

Tried with 30 seconds and still get the same error

Property: <Name: description, STRING: [ Client.SWFVerificiation.Rejected ] : status code 433>

Am i missing some library or should ffmpeg be comiled with some other options?


Is there also a problem with channel 4od:
Unexpected error during url extractor plugin invocation (4OD (UK only)) for item null: index is out of range 0..-1 (index = 0)

PS. This is a great application - being trying ages to get something that will transcode for my older sony tv

Re: Issue with BBC iPlayer

After a lot of research and debugging I have found the problem. The problem is in the iplayer.groovy code and what .swf file is coded. The standard code I had was:
swfUrl=http://www.bbc.co.uk/emp/10player.swf
IF I change to:
swfUrl=http://www.bbc.co.uk/emp/releases/iplayer/revisions/749603_749269_749444_6/749603_749269_749444_6_emp.swf
it works fine.

Question - I assume this is changed regularly by the BBC as new versions of flash player come out?
2. How do you find the latest version - I think I was just lucky?

I now have iplayer working fine - now onto 4oD :-)

Regards Ian

I found it by checking out the open source XBMC iPlayer plugin - Line 350 here
Its not frequent that iPlayer changed its swf url
Sony Bravia 2010 52NX803 - Sony PS3 - Xbox 360

Re: Issue with BBC iPlayer

I have found out how - if you right click on the iplayer screen to get the about information it gives the r number which matches the directories. For example the current verion is
http://www.bbc.co.uk/emp/releases/iplay ... _6_emp.swf

the r number is 749603_749269_749444_6
so there is a directory
749603_749269_749444_6
and the file is
749603_749269_749444_6_emp.swf

BTW the latest verision of the groovy file on here viewtopic.php?f=20&t=3277 contains the wrong version though it may still work:
swfUrl=http://www.bbc.co.uk/emp/releases/iplayer/revisions/617463_618125_4/617463_618125_4_emp.swf
