Full Version: Made a typo in output directory value - where did my file go?
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.

I have started Windows command and executed the below command (it opens by default in C:\Windows\System32):

C:\WINDOWS\system32>get_iplayer --type=tv --output=="/videos/BBC Bodyguard/"

I understand that get_iPlayer saves files using the current working directory...

so does this mean that my file is being downloaded to:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\Videos\BBC Bodyguard ?

It says that it is downloading, but Ican't find the file anywhere... so where should I look for the correct working directory?

thanks for your help
Check out this location:
C:\Users\user_name\Desktop\iPlayer Recordings

or add the "--output" switch to specify where you want to store the file.
