OpenSUSE Multimedia :: BBC IPlayer Desktop Not Working

Oct 6, 2009

Has anyone got the iPlayer desktop working in 11.1? iPlayer works if I watch the file by streaming live online but if I choose to download the file nothing happens.

If I try start iPlayer desktop nothing happens except a small box or something flashes up on the screen very quickly before disappearing and I get a BBC process in the process list.

I have Adobe Air 1.5 installed, flash player insatlled and the latest BBC iPlayer desktop (cannot remember version).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: BBC IPlayer Desktop App Update Fails On Lucid?

Sep 19, 2010

Recently (after the new version iPlayer was released I guess) I have been unable to download IPlayer content. On going to download, the IPlayer screen offers to install the IPlayer Desktop app, tries to install Air (already installed via Software Centre) and fails with a message like "A download error occurred. Try to download again?". Repeating just loops around to the same error message.

This happens on both my PC and laptop - both running Lucid. Have tried uninstalling the Iplayer app and Air, but still the same happens. Any suggestions, or do I have to wait for the Beeb to get it sorted?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: AdobeAir & BBC IPlayer Desktop / Show As Installed?

Nov 12, 2010

Installing on 10.10 64-bit works fine following the instructions on url. The BBC Desktop functions well once I reenabled KWallet.

My problem is that when I refresh the repositories the BBC Desktop is reported as broken, and the reason seems to be that AdobeAir does not show as installed in Synaptic. It does not matter if I install AdobeAir using .deb or .bin, it still is not reported as installed. Any ideas about how to make AdobeAir show as installed?

Debian Multimedia :: No Sound From BBC Iplayer / Saying "Sorry, Phone Does Not Support BBC IPlayer"?

Sep 3, 2011

I'm sure this used to work, but I don't think I've changed anything. When I try to "listen live" to BBC radio, I just get silence. I get a moving flash thingy, gently rotating, but no sound.

I'm using Squeeze with Iceweasel 3.5.16. It's got adobe flash, plus flashblock and noscript but I've said to temporarily allow all on the page and clicked the flash thingy. I get sound from ..... fine, and I can play all sorts of sound files usually. There's another radio station I can stream ok but it appears to be using a totem plugin rather than flash.

At first I thought iplayer was blocking me cos I'm outside the UK, but then I tried it on another machine with Win7 and IE, and that worked. My user agent says Firefox so it shouldn't be complaining about Iceweasel I guess. I also tried Epiphany but it just says "Sorry, your phone does not support BBC iPlayer."

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Download A Programme From The BBC Iplayer, Using Get_iplayer Version 2.48?

Nov 24, 2009

I am trying to download a programme from the BBC iplayer, using get_iplayer version 2.48. I get an error message saying that it needs rtmpdump >= 1.5, or flvstreamer. I have rtmpdump version 1.4 installed, but can't find either rtmpdump>=1.5 or flvstreamer for opensuse (11.1).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: IPlayer Fullscreen (flash Plugin) Opens Under Firefox Not On Top

Mar 17, 2010

Sometimes in BBC iPlayer - Bigscreen the fullscreen video does not open on top, and then none of the lirc remote control commands (irxevent) function, not even Escape (nor Alt-TAB, which would bring the fullscreen on top if I used the keyboard - but sitting in the TV couch I would prefer using the remote only).

This often happens on my SuSE 10.2 partition, especially when wanting to resume a video, but never happens on my Kubuntu 9.10 partition. Both are 32-bit using KDE 4.3.5 Firefox 3.5.8 and Adobe Flash 10,0,45,2.

How can I get the fullscreen on top??

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Use The BBC Iplayer

Jan 21, 2010

I've just had Ubuntu installed on my machine and still finding my way around - What do I need to do to ensure the full size screen of Iplayer stays full size? At the moment I get about 5 mins viewing time and then it returns to its default size. Additionally no activity with the cursor or keypad turns my screen blank. I'm sure it just a setting somewhere that I need to tweek.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: BBC Iplayer Doesn't Work In 10.04

May 31, 2010

I have a problem with the BBC iplayer. I've upgraded ubuntu to 10.04 and iplayer has stopped working. The iplayer desktop refuses to run, both when the desktop (or menu item) is clicked, and also when a download is clicked on the iplayer site. I've tried uninstalling AdobeAir, and reinstalling. Also, I've completely removed AdobeAir and Iplayer and reinstalled. Still nothing. I'm running 10.04 on a Lenovo 3000 N200 with an Intel Centrino dual core. Flummoxed I'm flummoxed.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Opening Get-iplayer Downloads In Other Viewers?

Jul 9, 2011

I've tried installing the BBC iplayer desktop, and am currently working my way through the maze of adobe air installer etc.

I wondered if it is possible to view the downloaded programs in a different viewer. I've got both Movie Player and VLC media player installed, but they will both only play for 1/2 second, then the program closes.

Is it possible, or must I persevere with BBC desktop iplayer ?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: BBC IPLayer - Full Screen Only Lasts 10 Minutes

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ripping Audio From BBC IPlayer Flash Stream?

Nov 3, 2010

I am looking at ripping the audio from a very old episode of 'In Our Time'. The episode is so old that it predates the podcast (which of course, would solve all my problems). I would like to use something like icecream or VLC to rip the audio from the 'Listen Now' link on this page. Unfortunately I am having a hard time finding the actual URL. The player itself is a Flash widget, so it is something more complicated than looking for OGG, mp3 or RAM file extensions in the page source. If there are some nifty command flags I should add when invoking icecream on the command line, I am all ears.

OpenSUSE :: Online Video Playback, BBC IPlayer?

Feb 15, 2010

I previously posted about noob attempts with Google Earth Problems with Google Earth - openSUSE Forums and discovered my setup 3Ghz Intel p4 i386 with RADEON X300(PCIE) and RADEON X300SE as shown in YaST Hardware Information may not be compatible with linux/opensuse. I've attempted some of the suggestions and either I've had difficulties following instructions (noob alert!) or the solution didn't work for another reason. any offers on improving online playback, in particular; should I get a new graphics card, what would be my best option with limited funds (<50) when I want to be able to watch streams online smoothly but not play games/edit video. Efficient rather than powerful?

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Watch Maximized IPlayer?

Mar 25, 2011

I am using 11.4 on a brand new computer. The original beta version of Firefox had flickering images when using something like the BBC's iPlayer to stream material. Upgrading to the latest version of Firefox fixed this. However, another problem, a virtually frozen stream when maximising the screen, has not been cured. At the same time, the Esc button to click out of the fullscreen image doesn't instantly work -I have to punch it several times! I switched over keyboards, but the problem remained.

Fedora X86/64bit :: BBC IPlayer Desktop And AIR On 64bit?

Oct 17, 2009

Edit: now working, thanks very much Leigh and Dangermouse.

Anyone successfully installed AIR and iPlayer on F11?

I've switched to 32 bit Adobe flash, tried Autoten for AIR and Dangermouse's advice for iPlayer: url.html but it's not working, and trying to install AIR from url results in an endless busy downloading graphic .

I assume my problem is a lack of required packages, though I searched the repositories using YUM extender for the packages listed here: url.html and can't see them either as installed or available.

Ubuntu :: BBC Flash (NOT Iplayer) / "This Content Doesn't Seem To Be Working. Try Again Later"?

May 11, 2010

Something odd going on with flash and watching videos, listening to the radio on the BBC website in Ubuntu 10.04.

Flash works fine for ....., the guardian, anything really but when play pressed on any video it tries to load and then finally a message comes up saying "This content doesn't seem to be working. Try again later".

This is not an iplayer problem, its the embedded flash videos in the BBC site. I'm behind a proxy but housemate's computers all work fine with it.

Debian Multimedia :: Desktop Not Working After System Upgrade

Aug 23, 2015

Yesterday I upgraded the system with:

Code: Select allaptitude full-upgrade

And today when I booted it up again I found the desktop didn't work anymore. There's nothing on the desktop but the wallpaper, all icons have disappeared and I can't click or select anything. The top and bottom panels still work though.This is the list of packages I installed and upgraded according to /var/log/apt/history.log are:

Code: Select allgstreamer1.0-libav:amd64 (1.4.4-2, automatic)
bind9-host:amd64 (9.9.5.dfsg-9, 9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u2),
liblwres90:amd64 (9.9.5.dfsg-9, 9.9.5.dfsg-9+deb8u2),
libfontembed1:amd64 (1.0.61-5, 1.0.61-5+deb8u1),


I would like to downgrade the package that spoiled the desktop.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Hulu Desktop Stopped Working ?

Mar 24, 2010

I'm wondering if anyone is having a similar problem as mine when running Hulu Desktop. The application starts fine, but when I try to select anything to watch, the green progress bar continually resets over and over again as it tries to buffer a video, and playback never starts as a result. This happens for low, medium, and high quality. Hulu Desktop was working perfectly fine a few months ago. I've always been running Ubuntu 9.10 (64-bit) with the latest 64-bit Flash pluggins, and didn't have a problem before. Running Hulu Desktop from the command line doesn't reveal any error messages either.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Play Iplayer Video - Clicking The Play Button Does Nothing

Feb 28, 2010

Anyone else struggling to play iplayer video? I've got the proprietary Flash plugin, which means it's probably not this "SWF Authentication" thing that there's been so much talk about.

I've rebooted, tried all sorts of tinkering, it loads the applet (I can see that Flash is loading OK because other things work, and right clicking on the applet gives the Flash menu)

However, clicking the play button does nothing.

OpenSUSE Install :: X Stops Working After Upgrade To

Sep 10, 2010

Last night I upgraded the kernel to and now X has stopped working. I can go into run level 3 OK.

I have tried removing the xorg.conf file, using a copy of the install xorg.conf. I have also tried reinstalling the ati drivers

-rwxr-xr-x 1 readyp home 101178081 2010-08-07 23:45
-rwxr-xr-x 1 readyp home 103164399 2010-08-29 21:25

the ATI drivers stop at 75% and do not complete.

If I go into run level 3 and run startx the screen goes black and all the keys stop working (Ctrl-Alt-F1 etc..)

I can attach the Xorg.0.log if you like, but it does not look strange.

I am sure the hardware is OK as I have my system dual boot with 11.2 and 11.3.
