Apologies if this has been covered before, but I did a thread search and only found one reference to what I am about to ask about, and saw no response (Though I think he wasn't very clear about how important it could be).
I am a Sky customer who wishes to access Sky Go via XBMC on Linux (Specifically on a Raspberry Pi).
Yes, I know, this addon is meant to be windows only, but from what I can gather, this is because Sky Go requires a silverlight plugin, which only works on windows.
I have, however, stumbled upon a silverlight emulator for linux called Pipelight.
I found this through a blog post that showed how to watch Sky Go on Ubuntu.
Can anyone tell me if this changes anything?
I understand that things are quite confusing going through the forum posts as I mentioned in a previous post I will be starting a new post with the release of v2.
As of now Linux is not available - I have seen this same blog and it's something I will be looking at.
However, there are some other issues to consider with regards to control of a webbrowser which window internet explorer does very well but getting control of Firefox/chrome is very difficult because they are locked down to prevent malicious code being run while your online. So thus we use IE.
So getting silverlight to run on Linux is a start and should open the door but there's still a lot of hurdles.
Finally, running on a rasp pi? I don't think it's got the power to manage to run xbmc and browser at the same time you would probably need a full system!
