Download full sets from iplayer

Recommended Posts

working fine on Windows, but bear in mind this -saturates- your internet connection, so everything else will be slow while you're downloading anything.

 

Grabbed the Foos set yesterday :)

get_iplayer does still work, I just downloaded Rag n Bone man. But you need to download the new version: v3.01.0

You can follow the download link from here: https://squarepenguin.co.uk/

which for Windows takes you to: https://github.com/get-iplayer/get_iplayer_win32/releases/tag/3.01.0

Download the exe (16MB).

After that the commands appear to be the same.

has it changed since last year as when I run the code on my installed one it can't find the link eg  get_iplayer https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p055zhn7/glastonbury-2017-foo-fighters#group=p056kg71

What info did you put in the command line? I've seen these extended URLs but normally just put the PID in, ie the p055zhn7 that you see above in your link. Disclaimer - I haven't tried these links yet so I may be talking cobblers.

Shame that there doesn't seem to be a way of getting hold of the 1080p streams.  I know iPlayer can do better than this, but "best" seems limited to 1280x720

True for the webcasts, but there are 1080p versions of the sets if they were shown on TV (eg Chic, Radiohead, Killers, Barry Gibb, Foo Fighters, etc.)

If you use torrents, dimeadozen.org has a lot of these, as well as a lot of the webcasts at 720.

Can you get the 1080p versions via get_iplayer, or just by torrent?

This is just via torrent.  Basically, someone recorded the live TV broadcast from BBC2/4, therefore they are higher quality recordings.

Makes sense. Shame, I'm sure I've seen greater than 720 on iPlayer via my Roku.

I use these magic commands, just after I purchase a new hard drive...


get_iplayer --prefs-add --modes=best
get_iplayer --pid b007r6vx --pid-recursive

 

does the recursive tag download all the recordings then?

Seems to, yeah. Easier to download them all, leave it running and delete the ones I don't want later. Or at least it is with fast internet and lots of storage.

BTW, I'm on 68Gb and counting now (looks like I'm nearly halfway.).  Third year in a row where I have every set downloaded :D

Dimeadozen doesn't take new account anymore...

Anybody wanting to share their downloads via a FTP server/ dropbox map etc.?

Seems to only be the 720p version though - you can get that direct from the beeb with get_iplayer.

Ah right, I didn't check.

Ok, I can send a link where you can download for free, if you private message me the 1080 sets you would like. 

Options are Radiohead, Chic, Foo Fighters and Barry Gibb at the moment but I suppose I could reluctancly get the Sheeran or Gallagher ones if necessary.

Same goes to anyone else, but will only hold these for a few days as files are 5-10GB in size.

Depends how techie you want to get.  You can use ffmpeg, but it's more than a bit fiddly!
