Installing iplayer.wgz file on Nokia E61i
 
I have successfully downloaded iplayer.wgz file via PC Suite to my E61i to \Widget\iplayer.wgz but it will not install. The wgz file contains a question mark icon and when I click on it, the file is opened via Zip Manager.

Has anyone been successful in installing a wgz on an E61i-1 (RM-227 3.0633.69.00)

Thanks in advance

iPlayer on a Nokia e90
 
Hi, I don't seem to be able to install the iPlayer widget on my e90; When I install it with the PCSuite, It says to finish off the installation on the handset, but nothing happens.

I don't get the iPlayer icon appear anywhere. It does however copy the .wgz to the widget folder on my phone. But trying to run this just opens it in the Zip utility.

I have the latest firmware (according to the PCSuite Updater)

Can anyone help me please?

E71 - iplayer
 
I have managed to get it loaded on the E71 - thanks for thr instructions. It works all the way until I get the "switch to wifi..." message (which I already am anyway). I see that this may be because of the new version of the file... so, does anyone have the old version they can email or upload somewhere???? Thanks in advance. stevo_the_saddler@hotmail.co.uk

Download iPlayer
 
I don't know how to get around the wifi-only restriction as such but you could use get_iplayer at http://linuxcentre.net/iplayer to download the iPhone version of the programme without any DRM (possibly on your PC) then watch that on your symbian phone. get_iplayer supports almost all platforms and is open source. You can even get it to schedule downloading your favorite programmes automatically.

it works on N82, but only v1.

iPlayer v1.0 - lets make it available.
 
It seems a shame that version 1.5 is being such a pain - it's not working on my E90, installs and loads fine, but I only get the menus and no actual content.

I would like to try v1.0 which most folks say is more robust but I can't get hold of a copy - the kindly uploaded versions on previous pages are out of bandwidth.

If someone can email me a copy of version 1.0 I'll upload it to an array of online hosting sites and post the links here.

I guess I should upload v1.5 also, incase it is useful to someone when the Big British Castle bring out another, more restricting version. well they're here for prosperity:

I want my 1.0 to work on 3G on my E71, Wifi works fine.

I'm on Vodafone, any one else have it working this way?

Wish I could save programs to watch while killing time when I'm out and about.

It isn't a truly mobile solution, but the way I do this is to download the program I want using get_iplayer for Windows on my laptop ( http://linuxcentre.net/getiplayer/ ) then encode the resultant .mov file into a .avi for use on my E71 using the free SUPER ( http://www.erightsoft.net/SUPER.html - though it is much easier to download it from http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multime...ed/SUPER.shtml ).
I think I use settings of MP4 MPEG-4 AAC FFmpeg 320 x 176 in SUPER.


(I couldn't get the symbian app to work properly at 1.0 or 1.5).

iplayer install
 
Can someone please explain in words of one syallable for a bear of little brain how to install iplayer on my N95-1? I have downloaded and copied the iplayer.wgz folder to the phone? What to do next and how to run it?

Unregistered 10-11-2008 12:07 PM

Rupert,

Once the file is on your handset, open the file manager from the menu (possibly under office) and select it. you should then be prompted to install the Widget as any sisx file would.

Has anyone got a version working for the E71 over 3G? I'm on Three if that makes any difference.
Cheers, Jamie

BBC iPlayer for Nokia and Symbian S60 3rd edition Feature Pack 0
 
Has anyone had any luck installing the 1.0 or 1.5 application on a device that does not have Feature Pack 0 (eg # Nokia E61, E61i, E70).

From what I understand you need at least S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 or 2 to install *.wgz files correctly. I wonder if the within the *.wgz can be copied manually into the correct folder using Dr Jukka's Y Browser and then launched?

Some might say that since S60 3rd Edition devices do not support H.264 only MPEG-4 VSP (google Forum Nokia Features Table), there is no point getting iPlayer installed on older devices. However iPlayer is still useful for radio as an alternative to the Listen Again RealPlayer streams.


Has anyone had any success on older devices? It would be useful if people could post their model number, OS Version, Feature Pack Version and a description of whether it is working successfully or not so that we could compile a matrix.

Thanks

E61i User.

N95 classic 29-11-2008 04:11 PM

Running the iplayer widget
 
I have the first N95 silver which runs on the 3 network.

Firstly I had to update the firmware, I soon found I could not update beyond v2 because of the product code so I changed that using Nemsis sevice suite then upgraded the firmware to V3, great.

I installed the 1.5 beta iplayer widget and ran it from the application folder on the phone. This worked or should I say brought up the interface that I've seen posted on the forum, however no content!

I have defined wifi as the access point for real player and still nothing!

I'm now at a bit of a loss as what to do, there are no settings that I can access for the iplayer and cannot think what else to change. The only thing I can think of is that the phone is a locked three mobile phone, anyone having success here?

The newer version of the .wgz file doesn't have N95 support - I know because I've just done exactly the same as you. You have to edit the .js file (as mentioned in the first page of this thread) to include N95. After that you have access to the content, although still can't download to your phone, only stream.

With the little edit of the script (n95|) streamed TV and Radio works an absolute treat over wifi connection.

However downloading video results in web browser being launched and a licience being obtained from BBC but then message about the video not being supported on the phone. I've read that but thought for a moment when it was downloading it was going to work, how cruel.

Also there is no option to listen live to the radio stations like you do with the web based iplayer. Prior to the iplayer I used to stream the radio live directly from the web page on the n95, very useful as radio reception is very poor in my house. I was really hoping that I would be able to return to the functionality I previously enjoyed.

Over all very chuffed with it, well done to the cracker guy who made it possible but I wonder how long it will be until the BBC shut out the poor old n95 user again.

(Please note that everything I say is tested on an E90 and I can only assume it'll work on other S60 devices)

It's still possible to listen to BBC Radio streaming over Realplayer, just a smidge difficult to set up. The links aren't terribly easy to set up; f'rinstance Radio 4 as live (thesre is always a smidge of a delay from the analogue broadcast on any digital or internet stream) is rtsp://rmlive.bbc.co.uk/bbc-rbs/rmlive/ev7/live24/radio4/live/r4_dsat_g2.ra?BBC-UID=84b9936567ab5a49858a9a1fa0a0a88725f597329030f1 94549fd9677403c3f4&SSO2-UID=

The best way I know of to regularly listen to BBC radio is to populate the streaming links section of Gallery with links to the stations and/or programmes you want to listen to. First, in Web, goto options-settings-general and turn Java/ECMA Script off. Then go to the station you want's webpage (eg www.bbc.co.uk/radio4) and select the listen live link, generally in the top right corner of the page. This will take you to an iPlayer page asking you to turn Javascript on, but vitally offering you the chance to launch in RealPlayer. Once RealPlayer launches, hit cancel. This will bring up a dialogue '"filename" not saved. Save now?' Select yes, pick memory or card (I'd go for card) and give it a meaningful name. Next time you want that station you can select it straight from Gallery's Streaming Links section. You can do similar things for the listen again links of regular programmes; f'rinstance I have various comedies on BBC7 in the Gallery, though you may need to change link's title when the series in that particular slot changes. Once you're done, reactivate javascript (or not) at your leisure.

Absolutely fantastic, streaming live radio4 now, thank you so much for the info.

I've also noted that I can also stream iplayer through the 3 access point on my n95 classic from three mobile, although the picture did break up and it had to buffer the video quite often. It still works a treat over wifi.

Hi,

I have read this thread with interest - I am trying to get IPlayer 1.5 to work on a N95 8Gb.
I have edited the JS file and repackaged before installing on my phone.
I can get Iplayer to work through Wifi, but not 3G (TMobile).

If somebody has an edited wgz file that WORKS on the N95 8Gb through 3G, could they zip it up and email it to me please?

nlpope*at*gmail.com

Many thanks.

Great Advice
 
Hey people great advice being given here but I seem to be the onl one with this problem 9thoughI only read the comments viewable on the first page with the article. I have download iplayer.wgz, installed it and when I load it up (via my wifi link), all I get are the BBC iPlayer logo (which says beta, even though the screenshots on the article show it's at 1.0), the Home, TV, Radio, and Search options and then at the bottom just BBC with a copyright logo and 2008 in small, white print. When I try and click on the above items you intially see a hand cursor and then just an arrow, but no real response!
My phone is an N95 btw... anyone else experiencing this problem?? I can't see any shows!!

If someone could help me I'd feel great appreciation!!

Thank you,

Richard.

I just bluetoothed it to myself, but you could just put it somewhere on your phone or memory card area and locate it via the file File Manager (or File mgr. as it should appear on your phone).

Hi All

Don't know if some of the earlier intelligent posters in this thread can help out.

I had Iplayer Beta V1 working fine over 3g using info from this post
http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/forum...t=76404&page=4


(I have a GREAT 3g connection where i want to use Iplayer and good data package with 3UK)

And all was working perfect. I updated to the Iplayer Beta 1.5 and all was still working great for weeks.

Yesterday i went to view a program and the area where the programs should be was blank.
There are headings for tv radio,,,,etc, and you can click on them but nothing happens.

So i went back to Beta V1 and edited the app-min.js file as before, bluetoothed it to the phone, installed fine, but still the same blank area.

So if i download the Iplayer beta version 1.5 to the pc, is there anyway to edit it? to work with my Nokia N95 (latest firmware) and to run over 3g?

bbc radio
 
hello, to listen to bbc radio, point your browser to "bbcradio.mobi" this site is much easier to use than any other one, and it has a full list of bbc radio channels that can be streamed from an iphone, mobile, or pc. This site has all bbc radio channels, in both real player, and windows media player streams.

There's a simple way to get live and listen again Real Audio content from the BBC, just go to the Beebotron site via the Web Browser. Works well using n78 + WLAN (in fact there seem to be a lot more content on Listen Again than iPlayer..).

Basically, the newest damned wgz file from BBC prevents any phone other than N96 from accessing mobile iplayer (even N78, and perhaps N95 etc).

For those who have this problem, download ver 1.0 of the iplayer wgz file here:

I have got the new Nokia N97, comes pre installed with iplayer v2.0.1, there are absolutely no settings you can change in it, the only menu options are version and exit. The player looks great however every video I click on I get the message "sorry, this program is currently unavailable".

As there are no settings that I can change I am a little confused as to how I am supposed to get this to work. Any help would be much appreciated.

Didn't have the iPlayer App pre-installed, as advertised and on the various bits of paper/pamflets that came with the 'phone. But downloaded and installed just fine and dandy.

A bit slow when first run, and was suspicious that it wasn't able to run on the 5800, but patience won out and it works as expected.

Very chuffed with the 'phone. First all singing all dancin' whizz-bang gizmo-phone I've owned and wondered why it's taken me so long to join the 21st century!!
