get_iplayer: BBC iPlayer Indexing Tool and PVR

Features

  • Downloads TV and radio programmes from BBC iPlayer
  • Allows multiple programmes to be downloaded using a single command
  • Indexing of most available iPlayer catch-up programmes (not BBC Three, Red Button or iPlayer Exclusive)
  • Caching of index with automatic updating
  • 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
  • Perl 5.10.1+ required, plus LWP, LWP::Protocol::https, XML::Simple, XML::LibXML and Mojolicious modules
  • Requires ffmpeg for conversion to MP4 and AtomicParsley for metadata tagging
  • Runs on Linux/BSD (Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenBSD and others), macOS (10.10+), Windows (7/8/10 - XP/Vista not 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.

Virus Scan Results

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).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.

Release Notes

get_iplayer 3.02 Release Notes

Changes in 3.02

  • Packagers: get_iplayer no longer uses the XML::Simple Perl module, so you may remove it from your package dependencies.
  • Added support for World Service programme PIDs beginning with "w". These WS programmes released since 11 Aug could not be downloaded because their PIDs were not recognised by get_iplayer.
  • Added --throttle=N option (where N is in Mibit/s) to restrict bandwith usage during media file downloaded. Value may be < 1.0.
  • HTTPS media URLs are no longer used by default. They are duplicates of HTTP URLs and thus may unnecessarily slow download initialisation. Use --include-https to bring them back.
  • It is no longer necessary to specify "general" as the value of the --metadata option. You only need to use --metadata. Since "general" is the only valid value, get_iplayer now fills it in for you.
  • Removed --ffmpeg-verbose option in favour of more general-purpose --ffmpeg-loglevel option, which allows setting the logging level for ffmpeg during conversion of downloaded files to MP4, e.g., --ffmpeg-loglevel=verbose. See ffmpeg documentation for permissible values. Default level is "fatal". This option is only useful for debugging problems with ffmpeg, so you almost certainly will never need to use it.
  • Removed deprecated options: --subsfmt, --noscrapeversions, --thumbsizecache
  • Reverted to pre-2.95 behaviour for selecting thumbnail images. Episode image is used if found, with fallback to series image. Force use of series image (with fallback to brand image) with --thumbnail-series.
  • The default thumbnail size is now slightly larger (192x108).
  • Output now includes divider lines to demarcate programme downloads and PVR searches.
  • Fixed a bug that could lead to a runaway process when parsing a corrupted HLS playlist.

Future Changes

  • In the next release of get_iplayer, the ability to specify the thumbnail size with an integer index will be removed. If you have a custom setting for --thumbsize that is not specified as an image width, now is your opportunity to change it.
