    TUTORIAL - Adding ITV Player to your Jailbroken Appletv (UK ONLY)

    As most of my film viewing is through XBMC then I thought it was only fair to see if I could add ITV player to its long list of useful apps........hey, we all need to catch up on Corrie!!

    So what you need are.....


    1) Jailbroken Appletv (see here for how to TUTORIAL - Jailbreak the AppleTV 2G with seas0npass )

    2) XBMC installed on AppleTV (see here for how to install XBMC post no. 12 TUTORIAL - Jailbreak the AppleTV 2G with seas0npass )

    3) Cyberduck (for ssh'ing onto AppleTV) - I found this easier than Putty in this situation!

    You can find Cyberduck here - Cyberduck - its available for Windows http://cyberduck.ch/windows/Cyberduc...ller-4.2.1.exe
    and available for Mac http://cyberduck.ch/Cyberduck-4.2.1.zip

    4) ITV Player plugin - http://xbmc-itv-player.googlecode.co....itv_1.0.7.zip



    Download all the above onto your PC, I am using Windows so I can only tell you what I'm seeing, Leave the ITV plugin as a Zip File

    Open up Cyberduck and install onto your PC, when this is done, double click on its icon and lets get going!!

    In Cyberduck, top left hand side, click open connection,

    On the drop down menu click on SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol)

    In the area SERVER type in the IP address of your AppleTV, its located in Settings--->General--->Network

    In the area USERNAME type in root

    In the area PASSWORD type in alpine

    Click on CONNECT

    you are now connected to your AppleTV, if it asks for you to allow certain things, click on allow, we will now need to copy the plugin zip file to the correct file......

    In the drop down menu click on the root file /private/var

    Double Click on mobile

    Double Click on Applications

    Now get your ITV Player Plugin that you downloaded, Copy it and Paste it into the Application folder youy have open in Cyberduck (it needs to be a Zip File so don't convert it!!)

    OK, at this point you now have ITV Player on your AppleTV, but there is a slight problem with the running of this so a slight alteration is needed.....

    In Cyberduck click on the drop down menu and click on / (this is the root directory)

    now click on Applications--->XBMC.frappliance--->Frameworks

    Replace the librtmp file with this one: Zippyshare.com - librtmp.0.dylib (just download it and drag and drop into Frameworks window, it will ask do you want to overwrite, ALLOW)

    Now we need it on XBMC now, so you can now exit Cyberduck and go to your AppleTV

    I'm using the latest version of XBMC, which is nice and easy to use as all the files are locatable in XBMC!

    Start XBMC on your AppleTV

    go to SYSTEM (Right Hand Side of options)

    Click on SETTINGS

    Click on ADD-ONS

    Click on INSTALL FROM ZIP FILE

    Click on HOME FOLDER

    Click on Applications

    In here you should find your ITV Player Zip File, Double Click on it and you are all done!!

    by pressing the MENU key a few times on your AppleTV remote it will take you back to the Main Screen

    Go to VIDEOS and click below on ADD-ONS

    and there is ITV Player in all its watchable goodness, unlike the BBCi version with the TV and Radio option,this lists all your choices in alphabetical order, a bit long winded if you want to watch Vampire Diaries!! Anyway click on one and away you go, at this point pour yourself another glass of favourite drink, pat yourself on the back and congratulate yourself on being a TOTAL DUDE!!

    Hope this has been a help, lets see if we can get Channel 4 Player next!!

    If your struggling leave a message below, if you've managed to complete enjoy the Downton Abbey Christmas Special LOL
