PostPosted: Wed 16 Nov 2011, 10:29    Post_subject:  get iplayer 2.8.3 UPDATE 10
Sub_title: bbc iplayer downloader, streamer & recorder
 

this only works for uk residents (unless you have a uk proxy)

working on , Precise, Slacko5.4+,Wary & lucid puppy 528

get iplayer allows you to download, stream & record , t.v & radio programs from the bbc iplayer website.
you can type a specific number from the tv,radio or podcast lists to download a single program. or type in the name to download all programs of that name.

Note1: you need to use 'clear download history' option to download the same program twice

Note2: if your audio and video are going out of sync look here for fixhttp://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=82895

Note3: live streaming is broken at the moment due to changes on the BBC site. There is a work-around though. From the recording menu choose the 'record live stream' option (this still works). give it a few seconds, then open 'downloads' > 'recordings' and click on the file to play. remember to delete it when you've finished.

website....http://www.infradead.org/get_iplayer/html/get_iplayer.html

i adapted lobsters sbagen gui to simplify the process.http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=64726

And used vovchik's 'sleepy.pet for the timer http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=470615



Warning: This will default download to /root/getiplayer/ so you will probably want to move the
getiplayer folder out of root and onto your harddrive if you have a frugal install, then symlink it back

(here's an example of how to do that http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTy2-rp0Rtc)

this pet simplifies getiplayer but you may want to take advantage of it's more complex and powerful features.
info here http://linuxcentre.net/getiplayer/documentation
you will need to run any of these on the main executable in /root/getiplayer/.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATED ... now with radio and tv streaming thanks to 'keniv's' suggestion (two tabs will appear in geany, one with normal streams and one with live streams)
UPDATE2... now with search and record
UPDATE3... fixed record tv stream and tidied up gui
UPDATE4... timer recording now working thanks to 'chum_bucket' on irc #puppychat. (how to in new' recording' tab)
UPDATE5... now with ability to download HD versions of programs, download as mkv format & download subtitles thanks to 'chrome307' & timer recording bug fixed thanks to 'technosaurus'
UPDATE6... Now working on slacko
UPDATE7... the pet now uninstalls properly, thanks to Jasper, uperax & bignono for pointing the problem out & some minor tweaks to the scripts
UPDATE8... Now working on wary..& rtmpdump and flvstreamer updated for lucid thanks to chrome307
UPDATE9... Now on Precise with Improved GUI..
UPDATE 10 .... updated all packages to 2.8.3 git snapshot

Hi 666philb

Have just downloaded and used get iplayer. I think this is a great little programme I have downloaded and played two TV programmes one short and one longer. They both play properly to the end however as part of the processing after the download I get a compilation error. I have attached the output but don't really understand what it means. Is this OK. I am using 528 with update 2 on Plll 800MHz 320MB ram. Can I also ask if it would be possible to include a similar list to that of the TV programmes but for the radio stuff on iplayer so as that could also be downloaded?

Regards,

Ken.

hi keniv

i had a look in the .pet and found what was causing that. but now i get a different error at the end. It doesn't seem to do anything bad though. everything still downloads ok.

Thanks for your suggestion, i have now improved the gui and added radio and podcasts to it.
I modified lobsters psbagen gui http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=64726

I'm looking into to adding live streaming of radio as well, and will add it if i can.

The new improved .pet is attached above.

Hi 666philb

Thanks for the very rapid response to my request to add the radio stuff to get iplayer not to mention podcasts and streaming as well. I have downloaded the new pet and will install and try it later tonight and report back. I'm glad the error is not an issue.

Thanks again,

Ken.

hi 666philb

Had a bit of trouble with the install of new pet. I think this was due to an unclean uninstall of the previous pet. I had to do some of this manually then reinstall the new pet. All seems to work. I found by accident that there also seems to be streamed video. I typed in the line number (233) into the xdialog box by mistake in "stream radio" and got a streamed TV program. I liked the first version but the new one is better. I have not used iplayer before but I believe the downloads are time limited. Do you know if this will this be the case in puppy?

Regards,

Ken.

hi keniv,

sorry you had problems but glad it's working now.

if you look here http://www.infradead.org/get_iplayer/html/get_iplayer.html
under the 'fair use' section it says that get_iplayer will try to remove downloaded content after 30 days.

however, i think that using the 'clear download history' option may circumnavigate this. the content itself is DRM Free.

just in case the 'clear download history' option doesn't work.....If you know that you really want to keep something, just move it to a folder outside of the getiplayer folder.

Hi 666philb

Thanks for the information on the removal of downloaded content after 30 days. At the moment all I have done to store content is move the tv, radio and podcast files into an iplayer file outside my savefile and symlinked them back. With the previous version I altered the path in the get_iplayer file so again the content was saved outside the save file. I suspect neither of these would be safe so I will do as you suggest and move anything I want to keep somewhere else. I have tried a few more low value codes in the streamed radio dialog box and each time I get a streamed tv programme (though not live). I am also wondering if it is possible to stream live tv. I suspect if I could find the correct codes it might be possible. I like this programme more and more.

Regards,

Ken.

Hi keniv

i've added tv streaming, both regular and live streams. Two tabs should appear in geany now. one with normal streams and one with live streams. (if two tabs fail to appear just run the stream TV option again)
there's the option to stream with VLC media player if you have it.

I've also added live radio streams to the stream radio option.... again two tabs should appear in the list.


Next thing to add i suppose is stream recording and possibly a search feature. And to tidy up the install by putting all the scripts in one folder, as opposed to /usr/bin/.

Anyway, no need to uninstall the old .pet. the new one will just overwrite it.
hope it works ok

Hi 666philb

The steaming live tv is very good. I have used urls for live BBC tv streams in PUP radio/tv but they have never been of such good quailty and they eventually disappear. I like the option to use vlc. I prefer it to mplayer as it seems to play everything I throw at it. You mentioned the possibility of recording. I thought I would have a go at this using the option in vlc. I have had one slight problem with vlc. It throws up an error (attached) although it does still seem to work OK. I guess the stuff about the font does not matter but I am surprised it still worked after reading the last two lines. Have had no errors with mplayer. I also like the idea of a search feature. Can I ask if there is a way to get the xdialog box back after viewing a tv channel then closing it in order to watch a second one. The only way I can find to do this is to go back to the startup gui and start from the drop down list again. I am impressed how well this works on an old and not very well specified machine like mine. Again a great programme getting even better.

Regards,

Ken.

EDIT I've just noticed that the last few lines seem appear when I close down the player which I suppose makes it a bit more understandable that it works. Does this mean the only error is the font which I guess is not important.

cheers chrome307 , glad you like it.

keniv, i've seen that error a few times, but it doesn't seem to effect anything.... if you want you can try installing the missing font http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=46657

i've added two search functions, and a record live streams option, although i've had varying success with the record option. I've put in your suggestion of keeping the xdialogue screen open. seems to work well.

next jobs to do are tidy up the gui maybe, tidy up the install, maybe add a timer record option.


anyway the new .pet is attached above, and you can just install it over the old one

enjoy

this may only work for uk residents

The only way to find out is to test it in practice.
But logically copyrights should make some programs
not available outside of Brittania due to them not payed.

Same situation when I want to see a thing from Norway.

Due to copyright not available it says very often.

But sure it is worth a try. Maybe some are there for all to see.

Just now I am too lazy

hi nooby,

it doesn't work outside the uk, because the iplayer website only accepts uk ip addresses.
if you knew how, it would be possible to access the site through a uk proxy.
doing this though would violate get_iplayers terms of use.
