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::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 3.03 Release Notes

Changes in 3.03

  • get_iplayer now attempts to download higher-quality audio for hls modes, including the default [email protected] streams. It attempts to download 320k or 128k audio streams to replace the default 96k audio. Higher-quality audio may not be available for some programmes. This functionality can be disabled with --no-hq-audio (see below), in which case the default audio will be retained.
  • Added --no-hq-audio option to prevent get_iplayer from using 320k audio for HLS TV streams. Use this if you have a device that cannot handle 320k AAC audio.
  • The default logging output has been reduced. Some unnecessary output has been removed, and some is now only visible with --verbose.
  • Web PVR: added --baseurl option to set base URL for generation of links. For use with reverse proxy. Set --baseurl to the full reverse proxy URL used for the Web PVR. Thanks to C Watson and J Kirkpatrick for suggestions.
  • get_iplayer no longer prompts you to delete downloaded files more than 30 days old. It displays a warning message instead. The warning is also now displayed with --pid and --url and with PVR searches (CLI and Web PVR Manager). As before, the warning can be suppressed with get_iplayer --prefs-add --no-purge. If you miss the thrill that only bulk deletion can provide, use the new --purge-files option to delete all downloaded files more than 30 days old.
  • --info now short-circuits --get, consistent with how it short-circuits --pid and --url. No programmes are downloaded when --info is specified.
  • --sort and --sortreverse are now applied before --limit-matches. This allows searching for only the most recent N eoisodes of a series with --sort=available --sortreverse --limit-matches=N. In the unlikely event you are using that combination of options, be aware of this change in behaviour.
  • The --thumbsize option no longer accepts integer index values (1-11), and a warning will be printed if you use one. Use thumbnail width instead.
  • After a cache update, get_iplayer no longer displays a list of all programmes added to the cache. It now only displays the total number of programmes added. The full list is available with --verbose.
  • Adjusted cache update to avoid possible overlap between TV and radio index numbers when --refresh-future is used.
  • getiplayer no longer looks for a system options file at /var/lib/getiplayer/options (a long-dead setting) on Linux. In the extremely unlikely event you use that location, set in the GETIPLAYERSYSPREFS environment variable or move the system options file to the default location (/etc/get_iplayer/options).
  • get_iplayer now checks for required v1.91 of XML::LibXML. It previously only checked for v1.70, which lead to fatal errors in obsolete Linux/OSX releases with obsolete versions of XML::LibXML.
  • Fixed a bug introduced in v3.02 that prevented --info, --metadata-only, --subtitles-only, --thumbnail-only and --tag-only from working with --pid and --url when the programme was not in get_iplayer's cache.

Future changes

In the next release of getiplayer, a full wildcard search (i.e., listing the entire cache contents) will not be performed when getiplayer is invoked without a search string. In the unlikely event you rely on that behaviour, begin using get_iplayer ".*" instead (note the quotes). The Web PVR Manager already does so by default.
