get_iPlayer for Windows 7
get_iplayer.exe is a seperate downloading program (from the BBC iPlayer download facility) and can be used to download
BBC TV and Radio DRM free and not time-limited.
THIS IS NOT MY MAIN PAGE ON get_iplayer
Since the Po-Ru ipdl.exe broke late in 2010 I have been using Phil Lewis's get_iplayer to download BBC TV and radio
(a fork by David Woodhouse, infradead.org) . Due to
the changes that the BBC instituted to make iPlayer compatible with Apples iOS4 I have found a few "work-arounds", these are
described on this website.
While I am still open to questions on the use of get_iplayer I have moved the content to a local area
so that I can access it should I need to see what I had posted previously.
Based on an earlier work published on Linuxcentre - downloaded from David Woodhouse's infradead.org in December 2010 now used with a few modifications to
the get_iplayer process using a different version of FLVstreamer (a January 2011 build that supports RTMPE type 9 handshakes.)
