  • Filter search results by channel
  • Direct download via programme ID or URL

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 3.15 Release Notes

Changes in 3.16

  • Fixed a regression in v3.15 that broke cache refresh on Ubuntu 16.04 and other distros with obsolete versions of Mojolicious. On Ubuntu 16.04, the problem produced a series of error messages during cache refresh similar to:

    Mojo::Reactor::EV: I/O watcher failed: Can't locate object method "is_success" via package "Mojo::Message::Response"

    ## Changes in 3.15

  • Restored --pid-recursive functionality broken by changes to BBC web site.

  • Added --pid-recursive-list option. Use instead of --pid-recursive to show list of available episodes without attempting download.
  • Removed unused cache fields: versions, categories, guidance. Those fields will be removed the first time you refresh your cache with v3.15.
  • The <web> substitution parameter now always expands to the URL of the episode information page on the BBC web site instead of the series/brand home page. This is to bring it back into alignment with the equivalent web cache field. The series/brand home page is always accessible from the episode info page.
  • Restored thumbnail images to Web PVR search results. Images will be added incrementally as you update your cache for 30 days after installing v3.15, or you can rebuild your full cache. BBC logo is displayed where thumbnail image is not available. As in previous releases, clicking on thumbnail image displays episode information page on the BBC web site.
  • If a schedule page produces no programme listings during cache update (e.g., if page is truncated in transit), it is now flagged as an error. However, this is only relevant if you are using --refresh-abortonerror. Otherwise, cache update will continue.
  • Adapted for SSL certificate verification changes in Mojolicious >= 7.80
  • Windows: Fixed a regression in v3.14 that prevented get_iplayer from launching in a console configured with a code page unsupported by Perl.
  • macOS: An installer package is now available for macOS users. This provides a "double-click installation" of all applications and dependencies on a par with the Windows installer. See the macOS installation instructions via the link below. The installer package is now the only macOS installation method supported by the developer. All macOS users are encouraged to upgrade with the installer.
  • macOS: The default output directory is now the "iPlayer Recordings" folder on your desktop. This is the same as the default location on Windows. If you have already configured a custom output directory, it will still be used.
