TunerFree Media Center Plugin for BBC iPlayer

Tuner Free MCE

Fancy a Media Center setup without the need for a Tuner Card?  Well, if you’re happy with the online streamed content from the BBC iPlayer and others then this is for you.

Recently updated to v2 the free Vista MCE interface for iPlayer now has support for the Windows 7 Beta as well as the ability to stream from the ITV Catchup and Channel 4 on demand services too.

“The BBC have been quite luke warm about supporting Windows Media Centre for some time now – they had some news video available in Windows Media Centre 2005 online showcase, but it was a bit hit and miss as to whether or not it worked. iPlayer on the other hand is a fantastic media delivery system, but has only really been written for desk top machines, not machines connected to your TV – which in my opinion has to be the obvious market. Imagine how annoyed I was when I read that Wii and PS3 users could get access to iPlayer too. That was just too much for me, so I decided to write a Vista MCE interface for iPlayer.”

  2. Just use a Proxy service if you want to get round that. Fantastic plugin though!

  3. Works a treat! Nice find.
