Maybe it's just me but I've not been able to play any videos from 4oD recently, other sites work fine and the log suggests that LAV Filters or OnlineVideos is being baffled by a change of format.

    4od now encrypt their main streams so they are not playable, the plugin attempts to find an alternative stream using either the 4od PS3 site or YouTube but unfortunately not all videos are available so you will run into the above error.

    What a bummer, I can't see any evidence it searches the PS3 site but I'm not in a position to say otherwise so I'll take your word for it.

    I have a PS3 that works with 4oD so I know not to waste my time now but alas this isn't a workaround everyone will have the luxury of :(

    Are you running the latest version of OV? From your logs looks like you are using an old version so you might be right about it not searching for PS3 streams. Try updating the plugin/site.
