iplayer feeds

Post by Don Satchley »

The BBC have stopped iplayer feeds, which seems to have caused a lot of problems for a whole host of people and businesses. Here is a link to the statement by the BBC and from that page there is a link to comments people have made so far. It seems poor judgement to me to stop these feeds when nothing else is in place yet. I know I used them daily. Has this affected any other members?

What's actually meant by "iPlayer feeds"? That link doesn't make it massively clear. Something to do with the programme info rather than the actual streaming media?

It means the RSS information feeds that give all the programme info. These are used by companies including Samsung and many others, in their TVs and streamers. Also lots of projects including XBMC use these feeds to create Personal Video Recorders (PVRs) that utilise iplayer.

Quite. I lost an hour or so last night to titling a week of radio from scratch.
