    The iPlayer site in Online videos seems to be broken. You can still navigate around the site and find all episodes, but when you click to play something (after being given the resolution option) the video just stays at 0% buffer and eventually throws a URL error popup.

    Ive got the latest version of the plugin and the site is up to date.

    Anyone had similar?



    TIA.

    Only just got round to this. Just an update, i uninstalled and reinstalled the Online Videos plugin to see if it made a difference, but it seems to have made it worse as i now cant find any videos in iplayer at all (all subfolders such as Comedy, Documentaries etc are empty).

    Ive attached my Log files and as above they seem to say that there are no subcatergories for the folders i try to look in, eg:

    Code (Text):
    1. [05-14 19:54:34,636] [OnlineVideos] [INFO ] Found 0 subcategories in 'CBeebies' on site 'BBC iPlayer'
    Thanks in advance :)

    I'm the same with BBC iPlayer - it just brings up the category list but show now content.

    Any ideas?

    Same here. All the categories empty except for A-Z and Most Popular. So if you are desparate and know what you are looking for, it's there.

    Good advice - thanks for that. I've checked from the iPlayer website and it all seems to work fine so I'm assuming that BBC have changed the layout in the last week or so.

    Hi all. Thanks @Brownard for the update, it seemed to work for a while, but now I am getting an error upon starting playback with all videos.

    Is anybody else getting this?
