Default New App: ITV Player

I have created an app for ITV Player, the online catch up service for the ITV channels in the UK.

As with my Demand Five app, pause is working, but it is not possible to change volume or to skip and you will also need to press Stop when it has finished playing.

If you want to watch shows with mature content, you will need to follow these steps:
1) Go to http://www.itv.com/itvplayer
2) Find, and attempt to play a show with mature content
3) In the "Instant Access" section, select the checkbox next to "I am over 18 years of age and I have read and understood the Terms & Conditions"
4) Click on the "Allow restricted content" button
Note: this will not work if you use the PIN protected access option.

When you follow those steps, a "flash cookie" is created as part of your Flash settings (which the Flash plugin in Boxee also uses).

As with the Demand Five app, it will probably only work in the UK.

You can install this from the App Box if you add my repository at http://dir.gadget-channel.co.uk to Boxee.

Note: You may find, as I have, that sometimes the message "sorry, the video could not be found" is displayed instead of the correct video. This appears to be an issue on the ITV site and not with the app, as this also happens playing in a web browser. Pressing Stop and then playing the same show again will usually work.
