@ 666philb

That would be great if you could add those options into the app Smile

The command line option I used for 'facebook' can also use the number entries that are provided eg

Code:


./get_iplayer --get 1070 --tvmode flashhd --mkv



There is also the 'output' option that would be useful to add, this would allow you to retain the core application in the pupsave file whilst allowing you to specify where you wanted your downloads to end up.

Code:


 --output, -o <dir>               Recording output directory



I haven't tried this option myself as I use a large usb flash drive currently.

Also I forgot to add that I am using 5.28 without the multimedia updates.

Moving home around Christmas sounds stressful !!

Hope you settle in soon enough and get back online properly!!

I was wondering if some non-UK members could try this out if they used a free proxy which provided a UK based IP?

The attachment below just shows the media info for the video I downloaded. It takes approximately the same time to output to mkv as it would the default mp4 format. Picture quality is excellent so I extremely pleased. Smile

ok, here's a test patch for get_iplayer, it installs over the get_iplayer.pet on the first page.

I can't test it at the moment, so if you could test the new options....

1. tv HD output
2. mkv output for tv & tv HD
3. subtitle downloading
4. can you test the timer recording, first to see if it stops after the predefined time (you could do a small 20second recording) and could you also try setting two timers that over lap each other. The problem was that if one was recording and another started before it had finished. when the first one stopped recording, it killed the second one as well.

Things to do next are..... update the gui, have a prefences option that allows you to set your download folder, maybe have a simple view, and expert view sort of thing. Try and get an option to list only HD content.

Hi there

For testing purposes I am using Lucid 5.28 (003 iso - Nov 29 - clean installation), with the 'Super Multimedia Upgrade 3HD, the current build of Get_Iplayer and the test patch 01.

This is installed on a flash usb drive - get_iplayer is symlinked to the space outside of my personal save file.

For recording tv to MKV format that works perfectly Smile - (tv mkv output)
For downloading subtitles that works perfectly Smile - (subtitles)
For recording HD tv content this would work but you do need to search for the 'HD' content in the tv cache otherwise it will not eg

Code:


477|tv|Mark Zuckerberg|b017ywty|Unknown|Inside Facebook|||default,|Unknown|Emily Maitlis speaks to Mark Zuckerberg, and examines Facebook from the inside.|BBC Two|Factual,HD,Money,TV|http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/images/episode/b017ywty_150_84.jpg|1323432464||http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b017ywty.html|

476|tv|Made in Wales: Series 3|b0183r2w|Unknown|5. Monster|3|5|default|Unknown|A comical short film about a family raising a spoilt daughter.|BBC Two|Drama,TV,Wales|http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/images/episode/b0183r2w_150_84.jpg|1323432464||http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0183r2w.html|



By default 'Geany' gives a 'search' option, so you need to look for 'HD', this is shown in entry 477, but not in 476 which is included in the the cache.

For the tv HD mkv output, my test file ended up as 'filename.default.partial.mkv.flv. It seems to be the right size.

I have problems with using the 'timer' when I click on 'how to use' it gives me an empty box with no instructions. I proceeded the next option 'timer', and entered the program number and duration but was confused about the job number ( I enter 1 and also the program number), finally I got a new dialogue box for 'rcron' and it gave me an option to add a new event, I tried this but this did not seem to work for me either. I think it's a problem with me, not the application in this instance Sad

Hope that helps

BTW

I tried to get iplayer to download a radio programme and convert tit from aac to vbr mp3, this failed as it complains that libmp3lame is not available.

However, previously without the multimedia upgrade, it converted aac to cbr mp3 with no problem.

hi chrome307

thanks for testing

the HD search i can't sort out untill i get online in puppy

the timer record instructions should be in the getiplayer folder in root... it's a text file called recording, that gets displayed when you click on 'how to use timer'
i just tried and it displayed fine on a vanilla lupu

anyway here's what should display
Code:
How to use the timer.


1 click on the timer button

2 select the radio or tv program number and enter it

3 enter the duration of the recording session using eg  1h30m0s or 0h45m15s

4 enter a number or name for the timer, don't use spaces!  entering 1 into the box = timer1 
and entering eastenders into the box = timereastenders. 
(remember timer is automatically appended to what ever you type... so if you typed timer1,
it would end up being timertimer1)

5 pschedule will then open

6 click on schedule new task and type the name of your timer into the 'command' box
eg timer1  or timereastenders 

7 select the time for it to start and press ok

8 done :)


Notes: timers must be manually removed from pschedule 'menu/system/pschedule' delete task
also at the moment, the timer script generated, stays in /usr/bin/   eg /usr/bin/timereastenders
and will need to be removed manually

I don't think there's a limit on the amount of timers... recording 2 programs at the same
time should also work


cheers

666philb

have PM'ed you

Hiya

Thanks for letting me know Smile

I found the 'recording' file in Get_Iplayer's directory and viewed the contents using Geany, surprised why it doesn't seem to open up for me.

I have a screenshot of the contents of the directory.

Also I encountered some problems when using the 'Multimedia' upgrade for Lucid. It does upgrade FFMpeg to a more recent build ie 2011 (default is 2010) but for some reason it gave me partial mp4/mkv video output and it complained that libmp3lame was not enabled.

I am going to test again with the 003 iso with only the default applications and let you know if I still encounter the error ...... could be a server or my pc playing up.

Hi there

Just an update

The HD and MKV options work perfectly Smile

the option of directly converting radio aac files to mp3 doesn't work particularly well Sad I tried various options to adjust the bitrate but the end result is that when played back the files do not show the correct duration and you cannot fwd as it returns to the beginning.

Secondly, I still seem to be experiencing problems with the 'timer recordings', I have attached a screenshot of the instructions you have included but it fails to run at the given time and I does not seem to work when told to 'execute now'.

Here's a sample file created by pschedule:

Code:


#!/bin/sh
rxvt -e /root/getiplayer/get_iplayer --type=livetv --get "80001" --output="/root/getiplayer/recordings/" &
sleepy "5m"
Mypid=$!
kill $Mypid



I'm sure I'm doing something wrong at my end, but I have followed the instructions provided.

Also I have noticed when downloading radio programmes these tend to end up as *.aac.partial.flv files, so I have had to go back to the cli to download these into mpa files for playback.

Any ideas?

can you let me know the exact instruction you type to get a complete mpa file, and i'll change the script.

also in your picture of your getiplayer folder, the 'recording' text file appears to be a script, rather than a plain text file. that's probably why it isn't displaying.

anyway, my broadband should hopefully be installed on the 19th Smile so will be able to get back on it, and sort out some bugs

cheers

hi chrome307...

when it asks you to input the duration you need to type in the 'h m s' even if the value is 0... example 0h5m0s as opposed to just 5m

Hope I am not repeating myself.

BBC and ABC Australia ? is the iplayer and the ABC iplayer same or
related? We have a thread about the ABC iplayer too recently.

Edit after reading comment from 666philb below this post.

OOPS yes I should have indicated that. I just thought them
bought the same software becuase the name of it so similar.

hi nooby....

they look similar but are country specific

BBC = British Broadcasting Association

and i guess

ABC = Australian Broadcasting corporation

Hi 666philb

[EDIT - Problem resolved in the latest build v5 Smile )

Sorry about getting back to you regarding testing this application, I have had a lot of planning/shopping etc to get done for Xmas and been a bit overwhelmed by it all.

Anyway thanks for the update, just seen it today!!

Still can't get the hang of the timer recording, have followed the instructions

Quote:

when it asks you to input the duration you need to type in the 'h m s' even if the value is 0... example 0h5m0s as opposed to just 5m


as you can see below:

Code:


#!/bin/sh
rxvt -e /root/getiplayer/get_iplayer --type=livetv --get "80001" --output="/root/getiplayer/recordings/" &
sleepy "0h5m0s"
Mypid=$!
kill $Mypid



Still doesn't record for me Embarassed

Forgot to add:

Quote:

It seems to be working without any additional instructions ie

Code:


./get_iplayer -g (Program Name/Number)
