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 from previous 30 days (not BBC Three, Red Button or iPlayer Exclusive)
  • Caching of programme 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

  • 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 scheduled for broadcast on BBC linear services within the previous 30 days, even if some are available for more than 30 days on the iPlayer site. It may be possible to download other content directly via PID or URL, but such use is not supported.
  • 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.

Release Notes

get_iplayer 3.20 Release Notes

Changes in 3.20

  • Fixed a bug in v3.19 that caused a "Can't use an undefined value as an ARRAY reference" error when using --pid-recursive or --pid-recursive-list with programmes that have no available episodes
  • Fixed a bug in v3.19 that prevented Windows users from viewing and editing PVR searches in the Web PVR Manager.

Changes in 3.19

  • Fixed a bug that caused one-off PVR searches created with --pvr-queue to be deleted when run with --test (thanks @wiehe).
  • Replaced BBC Two Scotland with BBC Scotland in programme indexing. If a cache update extends back before the week of 2019-02-18, it will produce errors because a BBC Scotland schedule does not exist for earlier dates. The error can be ignored.
  • Adapted --pid-recursive and --pid-recursive-list functionality for the change in layout of programme episode lists on the iPlayer site. The switch to series-by-series listings for many programmes meant that get_iplayer would only display episodes from the earliest series listed. This almost exclusively affected CBBC and CBeebies programmes, but could affect any programme.
  • The episode ordering with --pid-recursive and --pid-recursive-list is now always oldest to newest (as determined by the order of the listings on the iPlayer site). This ensures a consistent order regardless of the source of the episode lists, and it is generally consistent with how search results are ordered by default. Use --sort-reverse to list episodes from newest to oldest.
  • Added <senumx> substitution parameter to format series and episode numbers as ##x## instead of s##e## as with <senum>. As with <senum>, <senumx> may be absent.
  • Added --expires-after option for use with --expires-before to bracket searches based on programme expiration date.
  • Added --pid-index option. The programme index cache is no longer used by default with --pid, whether in a PVR search or from the command line. For an indexed programme, the cache entry provides a backup source of basic metadata, but it is not required. If you notice incomplete metadata or output file names with missing components, use --pid-index to ensure the cache is updated and used with --pid. This would only be of help with indexed programmes from the past 30 days.
  • Added --no-merge-versions option. get_iplayer now attempts to merge media streams from programme versions with the same name and duration (e.g., editorial and editorial2). There are some extremely rare cases where you may not want to do so because broken streams may be included in the result due to problems with BBC metadata. In that case, use --no-merge-versions to prevent merging and pick out the specific version you want with --versions.
  • Performed final removal of --hls-hq-audio, --no-dash-remux and --stream-http options.
