Next get your atv2 ip address from settings → general → network .
In filezilla connect to your atv2 using this IP address as the host name and username/password is by default root/alpine. Also set the port to 22. You will then see your atv2 on the right.
Now transfer the zip file in /private/var/mobile/Media on the atv2.
And finally fire up xbmc and go to system → add-ons → install from zip and select the home folder → Media and select the zip file we copied earlier…
And your done… If you navigate to videos → add-ons from the xbmc home screen iplayer will be installed. A good tip is to set it up as a shortcut for easy access just check system → skin → add-on shortcuts…
I also recomend the tvcatchup and icefilm plugins… But that’s another story
Actually didn’t work for me. I’m using the latest firecore build but when I try to install from the Zip, I get booted-out back to the main menu…no installation takes place. Spent a bit of time looping about before digging further: Seems there’s a Hitcher’s Repo plugin that you can also use:
I downloaded that, moved it over into the Media directory (as per your instructions) and installed it through XMBC…this one installed fine.
One note - if you’re using a proxy service, you need to put that into the plug-in’s proxy settings. If you do it in XMBC’s, it doesn’t work. (Most proxy require you pay your yearly license fees as well… )
As fas as I am aware iplayer is all we get on xbmc…
Oh no… I thought that having bought an ATV Flash license I’d ‘have a browser’ so would be able to access the web based catch up services. Once I’d slapped my forehead on remembering Apple’s issues with Flash (thus rendering browser based access to these services impossible) I thought/hoped xbmc would come to the rescue.
I’m watching the catch-up of Merlin right now via the XMBC/iPlayer plugin. I can also watch all of Auntie’s channels, including HD content (within the aTV’s constraints) and even live TV…what where you looking to get?
I’ve been looking at all these tips and pointers and while I think the xbmc iplayer solution will work (not had a chance to check it out/install yet) I’m pretty sure that other web based UK catch up services won’t.
Which is a shame and not what I thought Inwas letting myself in for. So I’ll be holding out for some xbmc plugins and/or a solution that allows Flash (Adobe, not ATV Flash) based content to work on an iOS based device.
Now REALLY looking forward to the Autumn Xbox update that’ll bring iplayer, 4OD, ITV as channel 5 catch up services (all controlled by Kinect) to my TV.
Boys, read the site - HTML5 video, at no point do they say they support Flash video (it’s iOS. You’ve been paying attention, right?) and certainly do they make no claims about iPlayer. If you’re in the UK, use the plugin, otherwise complain to the websites/studios for not supporting HTML5 video or offering an open solution.
You’ve got a solution for iPlayer in XBMC, and it works and works fine, but if you can’t be bothered to try it, go buy your xBox and leave us in peace.
There’s only one troll spitting venom in here. All the other posters are doing is trying to find answers to questions and giving thoughts, feedback and other possible solutions to getting the desired results.
Seriously - I spent time explaining how to get iPlayer running on XMBC here. Listening to you both whinge about things atvFlash don’t do (and never said they do) and then ignoring solutions presented to you is what I’m speaking about. If you want to go xbox, go there - ask them for a refund or something, but stop polluting the thread.
