Description:

Amarok 2 service script for browsing and listening to free content from bbc.co.uk. Note that not all content is available outside of the UK ( mainly anything that has to do with music ), but will still show up in the browser. Trying to play it, you will get a nice audio error...

Last changelog:

ditto,

it parses for an age but nothing shows up.

Shouldn't have anything to do with one's location, should it?

It used to work for me on amarok, but alas, no more...

There is small error in downloaded file name, which is 92500-bbc_service_1.1.0.amarokscript.tar.bz when it should be 92500-bbc_service_1.1.0.amarokscript.tar.bz2 to be shown in script manager.

This should be fixed now. Sorry for taking some time to do this, but BBC changed the format of their feed quite a bit, so I had to make some big changes to the script.

Could you help please.

Does it show any error messages when you enable the script?

Try disabling the script in the script manager, restarting Amarok and then enabling it again. At this point, if something is wrong, it should show an error dialog on screen if something goes wrong

Thanks for replying,yes , it does give an error. A window pops up saying 'Exceptions found in the script,check the log'.
I don't know where the amarok log file goes,so I started it from terminal and it gave me this output...dunno if I have attached the relevant part but this is the only part with error in it...

amarok: END__: bool ScriptManager::slotRunScript(QString, bool) - Took 0.057s
amarok: END__: void ScriptManager::findScripts() - Took 1.8s

I installed this from Amarok and I can't see it anywhere in the UI. It says it's installed but no sign in the internet services browser or the plugins configuration.

Incidentally, I downloaded it manually and installed it, and now it works just fine.

Great work, a search function would be nice. Looking forward to seeing if the BBC & Canonical improvements in Totem's UI can filter through to this.
