iPlayer on the Pi

I can’t take credit for this.  here’s how to get the BBC iPlayer working on RaspBMC.  As I said, I can’t take credit.  I got the information from here on the Raspbmc forum.


In short the instructions are simple enough to follow.

first ssh into the RaspBMC terminal.

to do this either use Putty or use another linux machine and type


enter yes if needed

and the password is raspberry



Then on the XBMC front screen navigate to System -> Setting -> Add-ons -> Install from zip file

now select the Home folder -> home -> pi ->


You should now have the iPlayer installed as a video add-on.
