Been getting this for the last few days, iPlayer is working fine via my browser just not from within OnlineVideos. Tried updating sites to no avail. Any ideas on getting this operational again.

Me too, exactly the same. Have tried it on xbmc with their plugin, this also would not work apart from live tv. I guess there have been some changes to iplayer recently. Suprised more people have not reported this, thought it was just me.

    I'm working on a fix. The BBC have shut down their RSS feeds, which was how we got the iPlayer info, so I'm having to do a complete rewrite. Might be able to get a new version out this eve with a bit of luck...

    I've pushed an update, update your sites in OV to get the latest version. I haven't tested extensively so let me know if you have any issues.

    Well that seems to have fixed it, live feeds not working but then IIRC they didn't beforehand. Big thank you for this!!!

    Interestingly it seems to have fixed another issue I was having with streaming BBC content. I had been unable to stream iPlayer material for quite some time and was resorting to concurrent downloading which was working well. Whenever I tried to stream it would play for a short while and then stop, hanging mediaportal completely and forcing me to "End Task" it from Task Manager. Now streaming is working perfectly. :)

    It's working OK here, are you definitely sure you've updated?
