The above link is a useful guide that explains the basics of how to use get_iplayer.

I am using it on Kororaa (Fedora Linux 14)

after installing it…

To get my favourite radio show downloaded –

get_iplayer –type=radio (these should be two separate dashes – – before “type” (my browser makes them look like one long one..)

OR just

get_iplayer –type=radio tom

this gives you the PID you need.

then just

get_iplayer –get 12884

It will then download.

This all has to be done in “su” though.

On Fedora anyway.

Hope that helps.

Oh yeah, I am talking about downloading Tom Ravenscroft on BBC6.

Update: Here are my notes for making this post:

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