[REQUEST] Channel4 Catchup - 4oD (Channel 4 on Demand) Plugin? - MattCook - 2008-04-14 11:04
Channel 4 in the UK also have an 'on demand' service.
I'm not sure how it works (download and/or streaming) but I'll check it out when I get the chance. Along with the BBC iPlayer script (and potentially an ITV Catchup script) this would provide very good UK coverage.
I'm not able to produce such a script but would use it if available ... would anyone else?
Regards .... Matt

I'm pretty sure 4OD uses encrypted, DRM'ed WMV files, so getting them to play on XBMC is nigh on impossible...
Channel 4 Catch Up (UK)? - rickwookie - 2008-11-24 12:25
Sorry if this has already been asked (I know it has for 4od, which is something different).
Would it be possible to create a script/plugin to parse http://www.channel4.com/watch_online/ and allow the selected Catch Up streams to be played?

You need to ask Mr Voinage.... hes pretty much top dog on these...

How does the iplayer plugin work then? That uses drm'ed files doesnt it?

actually some clever souls have come up with workarounds for some files to strip the drm from them before playing....i have it on very good authority
but whether such a plugin will be written and then released is another matter. You'd need to persuade somene with some serious skills...
[REQUEST] Channel4 Catchup - 4oD (Channel 4 on Demand) Plugin? - captaincook - 2009-04-08 03:05
Channel 4 has today unveiled a new 4oD Catch-up service that's accessible through any Flash-enabled web browser.
The new 4oD Catch-up portal at http://www.channel4.com/programmes/catch-up offers programmes from the previous 30 days on Channel 4, More 4 and E4, to watch directly in the browser.
Would love to see a plugin for this, its not the same as the DRM 4OD windows applications
