installed get iplayer yesterday and got about 12g of programmes yesterday. it was pretty easy to install, use the windows installer and launch web pvr manager. takes you to a web page that you can search for programmes, i just put in glastonbury and 106 programmes came up, which is pretty much everything on iplayer site for this year. got everything i wanted, no command line usage or anything, just used default settings.

Ok here is a rough/simple guide to the simplest way of downloading from iplayer. This assumes you are using a windows operating system.  There are alternative downloads available for mac/linux and I think it generally works the same way.

 

Firstly download get_iplayer here:

 

http://www.infradead...etup_latest.exe

 

Once downloaded run the installer.  Generally just click next through the set-up options. The only one you might want to change is the destination folder of the recordings. By default it creates a folder on your desktop. If you want to change this, edit the screen 'choose recording locations'

Change this or leave it as it is. Then just hit install and the program and associated tools are installed.  Depending on your connection speed/speed of computer this may take a few minutes while it downloads additional software etc.

 

gp2.png

 

Once done hit finish, we are now ready to use the software.  Go to your start menu and then programs and you should see a get_ipayer folder, then click on the 'Get_ipayer' icon within that menu as highlighted below:

 

gp3.png

 

This will then bring up a command prompt screen. Don't panic it's not overly complex as it might appear.  It will grab the latest index of iplayer files and eventually you should just be left with a cursor flashing like so:

 

gp4.png

 

Right, so now we want to see what Glastonbury files are available to download so we type the following in the prompt:

 

get_iplayer -- glastonbury

 

gp5.png

 

It is CRUCIAL you type it exactly as above with the underscroll and spaces. If in doubt copy and paste it directly as written above. 

 

Then hit return. What will then happen is a list of results will appear with all iplayer videos/files with Glastonbury in the title.  Scroll up the list and find the file you want to download.  So lets say we want to download that wonderful set by Portishead:

 

http://www.whatevers.../images/gp6.png

 

So there it is in the list. What we must do here is take note of that number on the left - in this case 357

 

Scroll to the bottom of the window again and type in the following

 

get_iplayer --get 357

 

Again make sure you observe the spacing and underscroll etc. 

 

Hit return and the file will begin downloading. 

 

http://www.whatevers.../images/gp7.png

 

This downloads the video in MP4 format which most media players etc will happily play. You can then obviously download a converter should you want to change it into another file type (just search mp4 converter and you'll find loads of free tools available)

 

I hope that is simple enough to understand.  Happy downloading...

Good work tumbles, but it's a hell of a lot easier if you launch 'web pvr manager' from the start menue instead of 'get iplayer'

i didn't have to enter any command lines or change any settings (except for destination folder for downloads)

 

a browser window opens, here's what you get if you put 'glastonbury' in the search window

I've got the massive fear now that the portishead and nick cave sets will be removed from bbc iplayer before I get home tonight and figure this thing out. I pray someone has done it already just in case!

 

I have Nick Cave and more than happy to find a way to share if you have problems.

True, I didn't actually realise that was packaged along with it too! 

 

I didnt either, oops :)

 

*if for what every reason you have to use cmd line, your probably best starting with "get_iplayer glastonbury > Glastolist.txt", which will save you the list of glastobury programs into a text file, then you can read the text file with notepad and pick which programs you want

 

so "get_iplayer --tvmode=best --get 415 416 409" would get you The XX, Bobby Womack, and Cat Power

 

 

*after I wrote that the web front end crashed rmtp, so I will probably stick to cmd line, but I will explore more when I have more time

just checked the bbc website, when you click on the nick cave link it takes you "http://www.bbc.co.uk...ar6wrz#p01c4fml" you should use p01c4fml as the pid number

 

so you should have "get_iplayer --tvmode=best --pid p01c4fml" IIRC

 

here is a link about it

Good work.  I had got get_iplayer yesterday and had got all I wanted pretty much, but Nick Cave couldn't work out how to do.

Didn't know about the pid codes.  Working now.

Good work tumbles, but it's a hell of a lot easier if you launch 'web pvr manager' from the start menue instead of 'get iplayer'

i didn't have to enter any command lines or change any settings (except for destination folder for downloads)

 

a browser window opens, here's what you get if you put 'glastonbury' in the search window

I didn't know about this! Doh.

 

Once I had learned how to the first one it was pretty easy anyway using command line (and I never use it), well apart from the Nick Cave one.

Quick question.

 

After doing most, I found out about the "best" part of the lines, but think there is only one version of most anyway (such as Chic) so won't make any odds and probably no point redoing?

Are the dedicated shows off the TV for say The xx, Arctics etc the same as the extended highlights versions from the BBC web only channel? I'm downloading most things but fear I'm just gonna end up with repeats of loads of stuff
