Here are my notes for how I use "get_iplayer"....


installed with sudo yum install

then chmod the file in /usr/bin/

(chmod +x get_iplayer)

get_iplayer (this lists all TV programs)

get_iplayer --type=radio Tom (searches radio programs with Tom in title)

get_iplayer --get 12864 (download as root the program using PID from search results)
type: get_iplayer --pid={the web address of your chosen programme} if you want the video in HD then add the command --vmode=flashhd after the web address
or --vmode=flashhigh

get_iplayer --get 296 --vmode=flashhigh

This is the Glasto' highlights..

This is for Linux - Fedora 14 (Kororaa specifically) - these instructions I mean.
