    On 9 July 11, I went to the MP Plugin page and d/l Online Videos v 0.30. On installation I got a message along the lines of "this version of online videos is not compatible with MP 1.2" or something like that.



    Is there another version that is compatible?

    There are two versions of the plugin - one for pre-1.2 beta versions of MP and one for the 1.2 beta version. The reason for this is that, well, 1.2 is still in beta, not final. 1.2 beta is not intended for general use, only advanced users.

    If you go to the post in this forum that announced the 0.30 version of Online Videos, you'll see two links for the two different versions. If you're running MP 1.2 beta, then make sure you download that version. To save you time, here's a direct link for the version that works with 1.2 beta: http://mp-onlinevideos2.googlecode.com/files/OnlineVideos0.30.0.1.mpe1

    Regards,

    Rob.

    I know this is going to make a lot of people tear their hair out, I've been waiting for iView to be available through mediaportal without having to open firefox in MP for a long long time

    But I have 1 not so small problem question
    I don't access iView directly from ABC iview
    I access it as part of iinet's freeview so that anything I watch doesn't count to my monthly bandwidth quota
    ABC iView

    In fact the freezone has a lot more than just ABC's iView
    iiNet Freezone

    All of these videos I get quota free, whereas if I load iView from ABC iview I don't want to use up all my monthly bandwidth

    Now the iViewFox plugin has this note
    Note: iiNet users, please access the iview site directly at ABC iview rather than from the freezone portal. Your download will still be unmetered.

    Is this possible??? Is this still going to be unmetered with this plugin? Also, is there any other way to include the other unmetered content with this plugin, such as WASO concerts, TED presentations, etc from iiNet Freezone ?

    If not, don't pull out the rest of your hair, I'll make do with the firefox integrator plugin and use the mouse to navigate. Anyone else using iView with this plugin on iinet, I would appreciate feedback about the quota free thing. I can't test it myself just yet, am waiting for a new Motherboard and a fresh install (sigh)

    Thanks

    Well, I do like the way my hair is (although the color is fading a bit...) so no worries there!

    Can you verify in some way that watching abc's iview is/isn't metered? Because I did see that term passing by once in a while, when I was developing this site.

    Could I suggest one of two simple checks......ring IINet and ask them if direct access counts...or find a day with no unmetered content, check your online log. watch some iview directly and check yo log again...it shows unmetered content (or freezone content)

    post back the result for any who follow you.

    ok, I did a quick check, watched a vid on the direct iview site, and according to iinet's data usage meter, it was classed as 'unmetered/freezone', as was the TED website from TED: Ideas worth spreading
    Unfortunately, it seems WASO concerts are only availably in iinet's freezone with no way to download them :( When you go to the WASO website http://www.waso.com.au/ and click on webcasts, it takes you directly to the iinet freezone

    Hi All,

    I just got a report that iview is broken...

    I've updated the site to meet new coding standards (probably not fixing playback issues), but I'm unable to test here, as the videos are georestricted, and I don't have a working aussie vpn at the moment.

    So, if you could test the ABC iView part, and report back (preferably that it works ok :) , if not, add logs) here?

    Hi Paul,

    Just an hour ago I got a report. It didn't state if the person was actually watching it from australia, so it may be just that...
