get_iPlayer downloads BBC iPlayer TV and Radio programmes – so that you can retain and view them for posterity.
As time ever marches on, stuff changes and my original article on get_iPlayer could really do with a major update – and, yeah, yeah, yeah, I’ll get round to it one day – so if you are coming to get_iPlayer for the first time please do this:
1. Read the original article that explains how to install and use get_iPlayer, but PLEASE DON’T install it from the links on that page.
2. Install the latest version of get_iPlayer from here – and catch up with the forum and discussions etc. The Square Penguin folk have done a really great job and are to be applauded.
3. Read this article for those who are having trouble recording and/or finding programmes in the iPlayer feeds.
