Features

  • Caching of index with automatic updating (default 4h)
  • Regex search on programme name
  • Regex search on programme description and episode title
  • Filter search results by channel
  • Direct download via programme ID or URL
  • PVR capability (may be used with cron or Task Scheduler)
  • HTTP proxy support

  • Requires ffmpeg for conversion to MP4 and AtomicParsley for metadata tagging
  • Runs on Linux/BSD (Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenBSD and others), macOS, Windows (7/8/10 supported)

NOTE:

  • get_iplayer can only search for programmes that were broadcast on BBC linear services within the previous 30 days, even if some are available for more than 30 days on the iPlayer site. Any programmes that are still available after 30 days must be located on the iPlayer site and downloaded directly via PID or URL.
  • get_iplayer does not support downloading news/sport videos, other embedded media, archive sites, special collections, educational material, programme clips or any content other than whole episodes of programmes broadcast on BBC linear services within the previous 30 days, plus episodes of BBC Three programmes posted within the same period. It may be possible to download other content directly via PID or URL, but such use is not supported.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Release Notes

get_iplayer 2.99 Release Notes

Read First

  • get_iplayer 2.99 is a bug fix release. No deprecated features have been removed. The primary purpose of this release is to restore downloading of DASH media streams that was broken by BBC changes.

  • If you haven't already read the release notes for get_iplayer 2.98, read them now.

  • If you haven't already read the release notes for get_iplayer 2.97, read them now.
  • If you haven't already read the release notes for get_iplayer 2.96, read them now.
  • If you haven't already read the release notes for get_iplayer 2.95, read them now.

Fixed

  • Implemented a fix for a BBC change in DASH stream manifests. That change broke downloading of all DASH streams (dvf and daf recording modes) for programmes broadcast on or after 8 Feb. The problem manifested as an initial warning:

    WARNING: Failed to download segment [0])

    followed by a different warning on subsequent retries similar to:

    WARNING: Invalid resume data: -1,637,0,637,0,1486640737`)

  • Fixed a problem that sometimes prevented subtitles from being downloaded when using --pid combined with --type=tv,radio.

  • Fixed erroneous remapping of old hvfvhigh recording mode to hvfhigh. It is now remapped to hvfxsd.
