Very pleased with myself this morning.  Smiley

Managed to get my plug working as an iPlayer based PVR (as well as a web, mail, database and file server   Cool )

Download the get_iplayer perl script and the arm build of flvstreamer from http://linuxcentre.net/getiplayer/download.

Then install id3v2 and ffmpeg via apt.

I'd recommend setting up a dedicated folder on an external USB drive for hopefully obvious reasons.
You can set that as the default output location for get_iplayer with ./get_iplayer --prefs-add --output=/media/USB/iPlayer for instance.

Hi, can you elerboate how to use this?  What do you get at the end of it?  Unencrpyted files for streaming on the home network?  Does it support the HD iPlayer streams?

It allows you to run get_iplayer - see the linuxcentre site for the full details.

I made a boo-boo with the flvstreamer instructions - that build won't run on the Sheevaplug, so I've included recompilation instructions here until I can host the binary on his site.

This is great stuff! I've now added iPlayer-downloading capability to my chatbot.

To save anyone else from fumbling around cack-handledly trying to get the thing working, here's what I learned today:

Download the get_iplayer deb file and attempt to install it
Code:
wget http://linuxcentre.net/get_iplayer/packages/get-iplayer-current.deb
dpkg -i get-iplayer-current.deb

It'll probably complain about missing dependencies, and advise you to run
Code:
apt-get -f install
Do so, and then do the dpkg command again. I hope that worked for you, because it did for me.

So that's get_iplayer installed, now onto flvstreamer: You have two options:
1) You trust me and stick the attached flvstreamer_arm into /usr/bin, or
2)
Code:
apt-get install build-essentials
wget http://mirrors.aixtools.net/sv/flvstreamer/source/flvstreamer-1.9.tar.gz
tar xf flvstream-1.9.tar.gz
cd flvstreamer1.9
<put the attached MakefileARM in this directory, obviously reading through to ensure I'm not up to anything naughty>
make -f MakefileARM flvstreamer
cp flvstreamer_arm /usr/bin

Now you need to configure get_iplayer:
Code:
get_iplayer --prefs-add --flvstreamer=/usr/bin/flvstreamer_arm
get_iplayer --prefs-add --mode=flashhigh

Hopefully that'll do it!

hmm, reading back over this, it should probably be in the wiki...
