BBC stop Iplayer RSS feeds

Post#1 » Wed Nov 05, 2014 6:01 pm

Looks like the Beeb are tightening up access to Iplayer. TunerfreeMCE is already effected :cry: (radio Iplayer programs gone) but Live radio and TV program icons are still there for the moment.
See here http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/11/03/beeb_clamps_down_on_naughty_iplayer_watching/ and Iplayer Help search on Nitro App.
Anyone know if this will cause or is causing problems on the NowTV box and XBMC?

:(

I wouldn't be surprised if it affected all third party apps etc in some way. Pure guesswork on my part though....

Very good news for TunerfreeMCE, the developer has indicated, on the support forum, that it will be possible to utilise and intergrate the changes made by the BBC. To date he has modified the update process for BBC TV Iplayer (no change required for the user) which as of this morning has returned the current Iplayer content (over the previous few days there had been no updates) :D ! Radio has not been fixed yet but hopefully soon.
