  Download a section of a programme
Posted by: scouserdave - 08-07-2019, 11:08 AM - Forum: Windows General Help & Support - Replies (2)

Hi,

Is it possible to download only a section of a programme, for example five minutes of a programme starting at 5.00 minutes and ending after 10.00 minutes?

Thanks in advance

  --subtitles-only w/--pid-recursive on mixed tv/radio series (Glasto) is unsupported

Hi

[Tried posting in https://forums.squarepenguin.co.uk/thread-2051.html but my post got deleted, twice)

I'm trying to download all the Glasto TV programmes' subtitles but it insists on downloading the radio programmes as well.

  HVF 320kbps audio streams no longer available
Posted by: errfmt - 04-07-2019, 03:02 AM - Forum: General Topics - Replies (1)

I've noticed that the 320kbps audio streams that used to be default for hvfhd/hvfsd/hvfxsd TV seem to have disappeared and have been replaced with 128kbps streams.
Looking at my series downloads the change appears to have happened around 3rd week in June, for instance Episode 4 of the 'The Planets' downloaded on 19th June has 320kbps stream, Episode 5 downloaded on 1st July has 128kbps stream.
As far as I can tell all current programmes now only have the 128kbps stream available (I noticed this because Glastonbury downloads were all 128kbps).

I suspect this a BBC change and there will be nothing that can be done in get_iplayer to re-enable 320kbps (but I hope I'm wrong!).

  --tracklist gives erroneous offsets
Posted by: benshepherd - 03-07-2019, 12:15 PM - Forum: General Topics - Replies (8)

Downloading Stormzy's Glastonbury set from BBC 1Xtra, and adding the tracklist using --tracklist. Some of the times are incorrect in the tracklist file. Here's a snippet:

Code:
Glastonbury: 2019
Stormzy Live!
2019-06-28
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0006gcr
--------
00:11:06
Stormzy
Intro (Glastonbury 2019)
Duration: 00:04:01
--------
00:12:24
Stormzy
Know Me From (Glastonbury 2019)
Duration: 00:04:01
--------
00:46:11
Stormzy
Cold (Glastonbury 2019)
Duration: 00:04:01
--------
00:18:40
Stormzy
First Things First (Glastonbury 2019)
Duration: 00:04:01

It's clear that the start time for 'Cold' can't be at 46:11, since the next track is at 18:40. The json file has the track starting at 15:34 (version_offset: 934 seconds).

There are two track time errors like this. The rest seem to match up with the JSON file. Any thoughts?

  Make --type work with --pid-recursive
Posted by: GrahamCobb - 03-07-2019, 11:57 AM - Forum: Feature Requests - Replies (4)

I use --pid-recursive to download various events/series (Glasto, Proms, etc). However, I only want the videos, not the audio programmes.

My script has historically used "--exclude-category radio" - which used to work. But it relied on the BSS including "radio" in the category, which it seems to have stopped doing (I think it stopped working last year but I didn't notice at first).

I would still like to exclude the radio programmes. I tried using "--type tv" but that does not seem have any effect (presumably because the --pid-recursive logic overrides it?).

I am currently trying using a workround of "--radiomode none" but I am not sure if it is working or not yet.

It would be nice if "--type tv" worked.

  --subtitles w/--pid-recursive on mixed tv/radio series (Glasto) is unsupported
Posted by: mr-b - 30-06-2019, 08:59 PM - Forum: Windows Troubleshooting - Replies (4)

Hi

I'm trying to download all the Glasto programmes but strangely it only seems to download some audio-only tracks, even though it seems to initially retrieve the entire list fine. Then it errors on subtitles with audio tracks.

Any ideas (on what I'm doing wrong)?

  Metadata from history - ERROR: Could not extract a valid PID from ARRAY(0x321a2f4)
Posted by: mr-b - 28-06-2019, 10:57 AM - Forum: Windows Troubleshooting - Replies (4)

I've just discovered the existence of the various metadata options and so was trying to download it for all my historical downloads.

However I'm seeing this error for both metadata and thumbnails, using the cmd examples in the Help docs:

The metadata and thumbnails download fine for specific programme PIDs, so any ideas what's wrong?

  Monochrome Subtitles with --subs-embed
Posted by: User 04 - 19-06-2019, 12:53 AM - Forum: Feature Requests - Replies (1)

Running get_iplayer 3.20.0-MSWin32 from a Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (Version 6.1.7601) CMD shell.

Since subtitles embedded into an mp4 container will always be monochrome when using the mov_text codec of ffmpeg, could these embedded subtitles always follow the --subs-mono format with a leading hyphen used to denote a change of speaker? This may require a second call to the ttml_to_srt function with a mono argument of true to create a temporary srt file for embedding.

It is currently possible to run get_iplayer twice to achieve this behaviour:

Code:
C:\>get_iplayer --subtitles --subs-mono --subs-embed <other options> --pid p07b3shn
C:\>get_iplayer --subs-only --no-subs-mono --overwrite <other options> --pid p07b3shn
This work-around does, of course, require unnecessarily re-downloading the jsons and re-streaming the ttml, which is a bit of a waste of resources.

Thanks in advance for considering this.

Hi guys,

I have just installed the latest version of the get_iplayer but I receive the following error message when I try to open it:

Cannot find encoding "cp720" at C:\Program Files (x86)\get_iplayer\get_iplayer.pl line 299.


I am using Windows 10.

Many thanks!
