iFilm Browser Down

Flash has confirmed that his iFilm Browser is currently down due to iFilm.com's site change.
hi. ifilm have canged their site now. i should be able to get the script fixed and i will post a new version as soon as its up and running. cheers.

This is what happens when you scrape a site to get its content, it goes with the territory. It will be back up soon. This is why every site needs to provide webservices :)


  • Ah yes, terribly sorry.

    We (I'm the lead engineer at IFilm) did a massive push of code on friday evening including a change to the tag library code that renders the pages. This undoubetedly is the problem your running into.

    We didn't do it to break your code, so again I do appologize.

    P.S. I love what your doing. Keep up the great work.

  • Hey, great to hear from ya! Nah, we know you didn't do it to break the script, your first priority is to make the best site you can do, which you guys do a great job at, great content! Like I said in the post, this is just what you get in to when you parse a page for its conent. Its just bound to happen.

    Glad to see you like the Xbmc project and iFilm browser, but I can't take any of that credit. Its Flash that made and maintains the great iFilm browser and the Xbmc guys over here and here. I'm just here to aggregate all this news and to keep everyone up on whats going on with Xbmc.

    Great news about the webservice. By having that it would enable a perfect iFilmBrowser on Xbmc, which would be I think the number one use for an iFilm API. What better place to exploit all that great conent. I'm looking forward to being able to authenticate with a user/pass for the 500k streams. I'd gladly pay my $40 a year if i could get all of that content on my Tv.
