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.

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."

Ubuntu :: BBC IPlayer Won't Work With Lucid ?

May 1, 2010

I initially downloaded Lucid as a 32 bit RC and loaded it on an old desktop to see what it looked like. As it worked a treat I downloaded the AMD64 bit final release and downloaded this to my laptop.

In each instance I loaded the restricted extras and also checked that adobe flash was loaded as flash was a problem with the BBC iPlayer before.

I can listen to the iPlayer on the 32 bit RC but not on the 64 bit final. Can anyone offer guidance on this.

PS. Trying the 32 bit RC on the laptop I was able to listen OK.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype - Pulseaudio - Sound Output Or Input Does Not Work At All Doesn't Work

Sep 11, 2010

When I installed my 64 bit system of Ubuntu 10.04 the sound worked very well and I were very happy. The problem started however when I installed Skype which uses pulseaudio. As soon as I start skype (or any other application that uses pulse, HoN for example) the applications sound output or input does not work at all. If I have pulseaudio started in some way, applications that I suppose do not use it like spotify or flash player stops to produce sounds. And when I type "pulseaudio" in the terminal it gives me this:

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 :: 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 :: 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.

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 :: 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.

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?

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 :: Microphone Doesn't Work At All?

Mar 9, 2010

It's been almost two months since this problem started. I'm running 9.10, Karmic Koala, with all updates. I was hoping one of the updates would just fix this problem.

The microphone does not appear to work at all. It seems to exist because I have a choice for "Internal Audio Analog Stereo" under "sound preferences," but I don't know how else to check whether this is true. Sound Recorder does not record anything and Skype does not capture any sound from me.

how to run commands in the terminal and I consider myself an intermediate user, I just don't know anything about sound.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: USB Mic Doesn't Work Audacity - 10.04

Jul 10, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04, using Audacity 1.3.12 beta... and trying to get it to work with a USB Mic.

In Audacity ALSA I/O preferences, I can select the USB mic. But when I record, the input meter stays at about half-way and does not fluctuate when I speak into the microphone... I can hear myself very faintly on the playback... but it is very quiet and there is a loud buzzing. There are no mechanical reasons for this buzzing, such as computer fan, etc...

Also, I cannot find the USB mic in Ubuntu Sound Prefereces...

This is from "Device Info" in audacity:
