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.

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 3.13 Release Notes

Changes in 3.13

  • Implemented the --pvr-series option, which provides a shortcut to create simple PVR searches to record specific series. This is analogous to an "Add Series" link in the Web PVR. For examples, see the PVR usage section of the documentation.
  • Implemented the --mark-downloaded option to prevent downloading programmes found in search results that you already have or do not want. This is done by inserting records for one or more programmes into the download history. These entries can still be overridden by --force. Not configurable in Web PVR. For examples, see the Recording programmes section of the documentation.
  • Implemented the --subs-embed option, which embeds soft subtitles in the MP4 output file. Embedded subtitles can be used by iTunes, Apple TV, and some other media players that do not support external .srt files. The normal .srt files are still created.

    • Embedding is done by ffmpeg when converting the raw download to MP4, so there is a possibility that problems with the subtitles may prevent the MP4 conversion from completing.

    • Colours likely will be ignored in embedded subtitles, so you may wish to use --subs-mono.

  • Use the new --tracklist and --tracklist-only options to download music track lists available for some programmes. Track lists are generally available for radio music programmes, but may exist for some TV programmes, such as Top of the Pops. The track list is downloaded to a plain text .trk file in your output directory. Not configurable in Web PVR. Thanks to @StevenMaude for the original idea and the Python implementation.

    • Where available, track timings are included. Track timing data is usually only available for music programmes on national radio stations. The track timing data also may be incorrect at source.

    • When track timing data is available and --start and --stop are used, all tracks are included in the list, but only tracks between --start and --stop will have timings.

  • Use the new --tag-tracklist option to append the music track list decribed above to the output file's "lyrics" metadata tag. You do not need to specify --tracklist unless you wish to retain the .trk file as well. Not configurable in Web PVR.
  • The output when using --pid or --url has changed slightly:

    • When using multple --pid or --url options (or --pid-recursive) all associated episodes are displayed in a single list before any downloads commence, rather than looping through those related to each --pid or --url option in turn.

    • If the value of --pid is a series or brand PID, get_iplayer will no longer retrieve and display an episode list unless --pid-recursive is also specified. A warning is shown instead.

    • The --hide option is now applied to episode lists generated with --pid and --url and --pid-recursive

  • The raw subtitles file produced with --subs-raw now has a file extension of .ttml rather than .ttxt. This allows the file to be recognised as a subtitles file by VLC 3.0+.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented subtitles from being trimmed with --start and --stop.
  • Restored --pid-recursive functionality for CBBC and CBeebies, which was broken by changes to BBC web sites.
  • Restored cache updating, which was broken by changes to BBC web sites.
