If case you have not heard, somebody has kindly ported a XBMC script for BBC iPlayer. I have not had a chance to try it yet but by all accounts it works great.

http://code.google.com/p/xbmc-iplayer/

If anybody gets it working can they please post instructions here.

Copy the .py file to the scripts folder in XBMC and launch it from the scripts option on the XBMC menu

Thanks, that works OK. I guess it does not support streaming but download and playback work OK.

been having probs with bloody scripts

do you put the py's in the root of the scripts folder or in a folder of their own, in the root of the scripts folder?

It depends on the script.

If the script comes in it's own folder then leave it in the folder.

If the script comes with the py at the root and not in it's own folder then copy the folder and py to the root of the script folder

I've just read my post back and confused myself lol

I've had a look at the script now. You should be ok putting it in it's own directory in the scripts folder. So the file structure in the scripts folder would be:

\iplayer\lib
\iplayer\resources
\iplayer\default.png
\iplayer\default.py
\iplayer\default.tbn

Hopefully this makes more sense :)
