I’m using openSUSE 11.4 KDE, with restricted formats installed with the one-click thing. Any ideas?
Or could it be due to the fact that packman have downgraded the get_iplayer packages with their reorg? IIRC a fix/update was required (@caf4926 may remember?) for it to work, and I don’t recall any update since then and prior to the reorg. Maybe the fix/update disappeared in the downgrade. BTW I still have the package levels installed before the reorg.

It does look like they are getting there. Last day or so, zypper up picks
up a new load of apps for which packman previously only offered backlevel.
I suspect that the guys doing the coolie labors are going to be at least as
happy as we users when they finally get caught up after the reorg.
Er Yes, I know. It hasn’t prevented users from posting problems and changes in package levels should be taken into account. I am also seeing packages to be updated, but there are still many red ones (to be downgraded) e.g. gstreamer’s set is a mixture, and several posts where phonon’s gstreamer backend is being switched to xine. I’m not seeing these problems, but there are those who are.
I see from that link, that Virgin Media is missing from YouView’s partner list. Virgin (cable TV) use iPlayer to provide their catch-up TV service. This looks like “the rest”. competing with Virgin and Sky.
That means you’ll get the digital TV you love, plus BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD, Demand 5 and SeeSaw, all instantly available on your TV, through one simple set-top box.
That TV box will incorporate several TV channels’ players (as Virgin Media’s service does now). Although there may be one rumoured, I don’t yet see a connection between YouView and a need for the BBC to drop/replace iPlayer from their website.
As a separate issue, the future of get_iplayer is always at risk (given the developer’s disclaimer on their website).
