I have zero idea what I'm dong over there.

The previous version I downloaded, more or less, did it all for me. This time, I don't even know if I'm downloading the correct files. It acts like it's installing, but no icons on my desktop as in previous downloads.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

(I'm using Windows 10)

Help / get_iPlayer
« Last Post by Ed on October 07, 2017, 01:30:57 AM »
Just a brief update to this thread.

I've recently been using get_iPlayer myself, with both radio and tv. Any problems there may have been earlier in the year seem to have been resolved, as it's currently working successfully.

I'm using v3.02, the latest version for Windows (see https://github.com/get-iplayer/get_iplayer/wiki/windows). I'm running Windows 7 on a laptop.

It is NOT necessary to sign-in to the BBC website. The program can access radio or television without signing in: this is one of the big advantages of using get_iPlayer. As yet, this is the only way to access tv without signing in that I've found.


I use these settings in a batch file (get_iplayer.bat) to access tv  -

Code: [Select]
SET pid=b0077lhk
SET progname=Sgt Wilsons Little Secret
SET get_iplayer="C:\Program Files (x86)\Get_iPlayer\get_iplayer.cmd"
%get_iplayer% --pid=%pid% --info --streaminfo --force >> "Prog Info - %progname%.txt"



Code: [Select]
::  TV Channel
SET channel=BBC Two

::  TV Show
SET show=Sgt Wilsons Little Secret

::  Program Location
SET get_iplayer=C:\Program Files (x86)\Get_iPlayer\get_iplayer.cmd

"%get_iplayer%" --get "%show%" --type=tv --tvmode=good --channel="%channel%"  --file-prefix="<nameshort><-senum><-episodeshort>" --output "C:\Users\%username%\Downloads" --force & cmd /k

Radio Matters / Orson Welles presents 'The Jack Benny Show' !
« Last Post by Ed on October 07, 2017, 01:00:26 AM »
Here's a show you all might enjoy: Jack Benny had a half hour radio comedy show on American commercial radio, a weekly show that ran more than twenty years, from 1938 until the early 1960s - the era known now as Old-time Radio. Thereafter, the show moved to television.

Jack Benny, Mary Livingston (Jack's wife), Phil Harris, Denis Day, and Rochester. Sponsored in 1943 by Grape Nut breakfast cereal.

When Jack - a versatile comedian - was taken ill (which didn't happen very often) sometimes Orson Welles would stand in for him. Mr Welles was not known for his ability as a stand up comedian, but he does a pretty good job in a show that was basically a half-hour comedy sketch, to the extent of even doing sight gags - on radio!

This one is from 1943, with Jack taking a week off due to illness, and Orson Welles pinch hitting for him (mostly on the receiving end, as the butt of all the rest of the cast's jokes) -
