    I noticed that ITV has changed some of the links on its website which means that the individual channels in the plugin no longer work, only the A-Z still works.

    The feed urls currently in the plugin are, but if you visit these links the page is not longer avaliable.

    Hello, I tried to use ITV Player today and it looks like it hasn't updated since July 2012, is this a known issue?

    thanks

    I am not sure if anyone is actively looking into this, perhaps brownard (who I believe created this great plugin) could let us know if he has any idea on how to fix the problem.

    It seems that the A-Z is now not updating some programmes for instance I cant seem to find Mr Selfridge on there.

    It seems that the guys over at XBMC have managed to find out why some programmes do not show in the A-Z listing it is due to the ProgrammeMediaId XML field, there are a number of shows that have it set to -1, and these are the ones that do not show up.
    Someone has worked out in their plugin that by doing a string replacement on the xml file to set a default thumbnail where a one does not exsist gets back the shows that are missing, unfortunately I have not got a clue about debugging brownards excellent plugin but if someone else has any ideas the link below gives full details of the fix for XBMC hopefully someone can transport this over to the Online Videos plugin.
