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

Changes in 3.09

  • Search terms can no longer be saved in your default options file. Many users have shot themselves in the foot over the years by mistyping a command and accidentally saving search terms, which then break future searches because they are applied globally. If this has happened to you, delete the offending option with get_iplayer --prefs-del --search="xyz" (that is a literal "xyz" - the exact value is not required).
  • Enabled colour subtitles for S4C programmes. Revert to mono subtitles with --subs-mono if you prefer.
  • Added substitution parameters subsfile and subsraw for SRT and TTML subtitle files, respectively. Use with --command for post-processing subtitles. The subsraw file is only present when --subsraw is specified.
  • Null characters are now removed from subtitles before processsing. This should prevent at least some problems caused by corrupt subtitle files. (@notnac)
  • The --streaminfo option now short-circuits downloading with --pid in the same way as --info.
  • Removed obsolete thumbnail sizes (86, 150, 178, 528, 1024, 1600). Unsupported sizes are now mapped to nearest supported size.
  • Added --download-abortonfail option to force get_iplayer to exit the first time any mode fails to download due to error (e.g., failure to download a media file segment). You may wish to use this option if you have a very unreliable upstream connection in order to prevent download attempts likely to be wasted. (@notnac)
  • Added --no-metadata option to enable ad hoc override of --metadata value stored in preferences.
  • [Windows] Fixed an installer bug that would create a desktop shortcut to get_iplayer documentation even if desktop shortcuts were not selected during installation. The unwanted desktop shortcut can safely be deleted.
