This is a dirty horrible plugin to allow you to watch 4OD in XBMC. It has a few requirments:
- .NET Framework 3.5
- Flash Player to be installed in IE
- Plugin must be intalled into "C:/Program Files/XBMC/Plugins/Video"
Due to the way 4OD streams, it is not yet possible to view the streams inside the XBMC player, therefore this plugin launches an external player, which loads the appropriate page, and then fullscreens the flash player. This is achieved by simulating a click on the fullscreen button. This is likely to cause problems if you have non standard themes for Windows. I have only tested it in Windows XP. Once the program has finished, you need to quit the player (alt+f4) which will return you to XBMC. It's not the best solution in the world, but (in my opinion) it is better than having nothing.
Credit goes to fantaman32 for writing an early version of the scraping and program listing, and dj_gerbil for his brief help with the external player concept. These are the guys that have written the excellent TVCatchup plugin. If you haven't checked it out yet, you probably should.
Discussion should take place (here)[http://xbmc.org/forum/showthread.php?t=32602]. I have noticed an issue with content where you need to confirm your age. I haven't quite worked out what I'm gonna do about that yet, it just means it won't fullscreen automatically so you'll need to whip out a mouse. Very elegant. I intend to look into a Mac version soon, but I don't really know where to start with Linux. And I'm afraid that until XBMC supports RTMPE, original xbox owners are pretty much stuck.

(If anyone wants to link to this, could they please link to this page rather than directly to the zip file as that is likely to change. Thanks)
This currently only gets yesterday's programmes, but I'm working on making it get everything.
