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 3.04 Release Notes

Changes in 3.04

  • Fixed a serious bug introduced in v3.03 that could cause MP4 conversions to be skipped when using the PVR function. If you are using v3.03, you are strongly urged to upgrade to v3.04 immediately.
  • --force no longer short-circuits --history when searching the download history. The previous behaviour would result in an empty Recordings tab in the Web PVR Manager.
  • Suppressed unnecessary warnings about future programmes when running PVR searches.

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.
