This only applies to people in the UK but is there any way to get 4OD or ITVPlayer working in Boxee on the the AppleTV?

Thanks

I haven't seen any app for 4OD - there was a guy on these boards who talked about developing one for 6 months and then posted about just releasing it any moment. That was 6 months ago - so you're guess is as good as mine on that one!

As for iTVPlayer, you're in luck! You need to add

to your repositories in boxee and two new apps will show up for you: iTVPlayer and DemandFIVE. You'll probably have slightly more luck with ITV to be honest - the FIVE app can be a bit ropey at times (and there seems to be no predictable way of sussing out when it's gonna work).

Thanks thats great news. I will give it a go. Hope there will be a 4od app soon. Can you see it via Youtube anyhow?

Actually, I wondered about the youtube thing... would it be possible to add rss feeds to right place in youtube to get 4OD content? As for the guy who was making the app, well no activity for 6 months doesn't sound to good to me! As I recall at the time, people begged him to either release the app finished or not, or release the source code and they would finish it for him. But he never replied...

looks like 4od is now moving to using seesaw as the method of accessing their catchup service.

Seesaw is similar to Boxee I imagine?

Wonder why they went with that?

WOnder if a port can be made from a Seesaw app to a Boxee app.

This is great, I didn't know we could add itv and channel 5 to the atv.

I just can't get around the guidance screen issue, how can I get rid of it on the atv?

seesaw is more like a UK version of hulu, well it will be once it has more content. so there is no reason why there can not be a seesaw app running inside boxee.
