ITV and 4od have just launched on the PS3 (http://www.electricpig.co.uk/2010/12/15/itv-player-and-4od-on-ps3-review-first-look/), might be worth trying the link on the boxee browser, not sure of the direct link to itvplayer

4od is http://ps3.channel4.com/
ITV is ???

Is there any devs out there that can wrap this up as an app? If someone could get hold of the youtube learn code won't it be as easy as changing the URL, probably not.

Going to have a look in to how to get on to the ITV PS3 site it looks like they might be doing some sort of browser sniffing on http://www.itv.com/ps3

I would settle for the ability to add webpage bookmarks under Apps, then I have a quick way of accessing urls.

There's actually two ITV player apps for the Box already - I tried one last night but I got "geoblocked" from the media as I'm in Australia. But the app I tried did seem to work right up to the point where it would have shown me something had I not emigrated!

Neither of the two existing ITV apps work for me - are we talking about the Fuzzthed ones?

medicineuk, thanks for the URL - works but seems to re-direct to standard site now and again?

also, i got a large black vertical rectangle down right hand of pic on 4OD.

Would only work if you change your user agent string to the PS3 one. You can't change user agent on the Boxee Box.

Add a ticket on jira and see if someone from Boxee can give ITV a call!

The PS3 4oD site looks good, but unless I'm missing something it seems extremely limited compared to the normal site. Take Peep Show for example. The normal 4oD site has every episode of series 1 - 6 and 3 episodes of series 7. The PS3 site has just one episode each from series 3 and 4 and 3 episode from series 7 (and the episodes from series 3 and 4 are only available for 12 days and no time limit is shown on the main site).
There are also many shows which do not appear on the PS3 site at all, such as the IT Crowd for example.

Thought I would plug the following UK content related JIRA issues.

[TPI]- BBC iplayer seeking not supported. Manual seeking doesn't work, going to previous page causes Boxee Box to hang
http://jira.boxee.tv/browse/BOXEE-7728

UK channel 4 and channel five shows: Link to show on channels website instead of Youtube.
http://jira.boxee.tv/browse/BOXEE-8110

ITV Player, Channel 4 on Demand and Demand Five videos: Auto full screen, seeking and pausing not supported.
http://jira.boxee.tv/browse/BOXEE-8387

Add a BBC channel for BBC shows
http://jira.boxee.tv/browse/BOXEE-8155

Video quality option not available via BBC iPlayer app
http://jira.boxee.tv/browse/BOXEE-8154

I believe fixes for the first two are scheduled, but no harm in voting and commenting :) The third issue I've just created. The fourth has been deferred, hoping more votes will cause a change. The final issue is currently unscheduled. Thank you.
