Thread: Both BBC iPlayer Desktop and get_iplayer fail to download programmes.

  1. #1

    Default Both BBC iPlayer Desktop and get_iplayer fail to download programmes.

    I have both get_iplayer and BBC iPlayer installed. Neither will download.

    BBC iPlayer says
    A problem occurred while downloading this programme
    And when
    Code:
    get_iplayer 46 --get --output ~/Videos/BBC\ iPlayer/ --modes flashvhigh1
    is run, get_iplayer gives this output

    I'm using openSUSE 11.4 KDE, with restricted formats installed with the one-click thing. Any ideas?

    Or could it be due to the fact that packman have downgraded the get_iplayer packages with their reorg? IIRC a fix/update was required (@caf4926 may remember?) for it to work, and I don't recall any update since then and prior to the reorg. Maybe the fix/update disappeared in the downgrade. BTW I still have the package levels installed before the reorg.

    It does look like they are getting there. Last day or so, zypper up picks
    up a new load of apps for which packman previously only offered backlevel.
    I suspect that the guys doing the coolie labors are going to be at least as
    happy as we users when they finally get caught up after the reorg.

    Hi
    It's the same one I worked on that packman used (see the changelog ),
    so it should still be ok...

    Er Yes, I know. It hasn't prevented users from posting problems and changes in package levels should be taken into account. I am also seeing packages to be updated, but there are still many red ones (to be downgraded) e.g. gstreamer's set is a mixture, and several posts where phonon's gstreamer backend is being switched to xine. I'm not seeing these problems, but there are those who are.

    Thanks malcolm. What is your recommendation i.e. take downgrade or carry on with the previous version?
