  Indexing skipped with --pvr if first PVR search is PID-based
Posted by: roga - 27-11-2018, 10:02 AM - Forum: Windows Troubleshooting - Replies (1)

I wondered why my pvr search wasn't automatically  starting the indexing to refresh the cache (for radio in this case).
I then noticed that the first search item (alphabetically) was a pid search, so I renamed it, ran the task again and indexing happened as expected.

  reduce download size for radio?
Posted by: Cartel - 21-11-2018, 06:28 AM - Forum: Windows General Help & Support - Replies (1)

hey people

So since I updated get_iplayer a few weeks ago I noticed that radio shows I download are generally a much bigger size.
My question is is there any way of reducing the quality and therefore the download size?
This is strictly a BBC radio question.

Just wondering if it is possible to configure subtitles file to have additional suffix for language.
Something like

  How do I search for only episodes of "School"?
Posted by: adhawkins - 07-11-2018, 11:28 AM - Forum: General Topics - Replies (5)


Trying to use the PVR features to download 'School'. However, if I apply a PVR search for this, it's also downloading 'School of Roars', 'Our School' etc.

Is there a way to require the PVR search to exactly match the program title?

Is there a list of directives that for pvr search files somewhere?

  How do I select programme version for The Code of the Woosters (b007ww6f)?
Posted by: forget.it - 07-11-2018, 08:48 AM - Forum: General Topics - Replies (6)

I can play via the web (Firefox on Win10) the
The Code of the Woosters - The Plot Thickens
which first delivers me to Sounds:

But when I use the PVR to record either of those URLs I immediately get:

INFO: No versions of this programme were selected (available versions: shortened)

Recording complete
and no download is to be found.

I've removed the line
radiomode worse
from my options file and tried again  - but still no download.

Admittedly I am still running v3.05 (on Win10).
I'll be sharp to upgrade if the latest version doesn't have this problem.

  How do I find the series PID for Informer?
Posted by: ac427 - 05-11-2018, 10:28 PM - Forum: General Topics - Replies (2)

I thought this would download all six episodes but it only downloaded one episode,

get_iplayer --tvmode best --pid-recursive --pid p06lhrf9 --output d:\temp\tv

Did i get the series pid wrong ?

Do i find the series pid from the url on the iPlayer website

What is the official way of finding the series pid?

  Historical tracklistings
Posted by: mable syrup - 03-11-2018, 01:16 PM - Forum: General Topics - Replies (1)

Is there an easy way of getting track listings for programmes that are no longer available for listening, but which do still have listings?  After testing a one-off old programme from 2011, for which the listing downloaded ok, I tried using pid-recursive, but that only picks up the recent episodes that can still be listened to.  Am I just going to have to process the individual PIDs?

  Cannot connect to localhost:1935, Web PVR Manager wont load.
Posted by: OnTheBeeb - 02-11-2018, 11:53 AM - Forum: Windows Troubleshooting - Replies (2)

As the titles says this started happening hours ago, I can download the PID data using get_iplayer but when I click 'Web PVR Manager' it loads CMD Prompt and says 'INFO: Listening on' and it opens a new tab for 'localhost:1935' but the page keeps loading and nothing happens.

Anyone else getting this bug or is it user related.

If so anyway of fixing it?

  --pid-recursive not working with broken obsolete version of get_iplayer
Posted by: Dranok - 30-10-2018, 11:35 PM - Forum: General Topics - Replies (3)

Hi all.  Searching has revealed nothing to me specific to this fault, can anyone suggest some things that might be causing it?

I've just recognized that the reason I have recently been missing the very few TV programmes I record is that the Series or Brand PId's I have in my list for recording don't seem to be recognized as having any programmes associated with them.

(In addition to a few PVR entries, I have a couple batch files to automate grabbing those one-off PId's that take my interest in the iPlayer web pages...  Trouble is, because it is automated, I don't see when it says "0 total programmes" to me so I've missed a lot recently without realizing it :-[ )

So, for example, I run get_iplayer (or "Perl get_iplayer.pl" in my batch file) with --Hide --Versions=original,default --pid-recursive --pid=... with the following PId's on separate commandlines:

p06jy6bc (which is Killing Eve, that the BBC have decided to leave available as an entire series long-term, and to which I get the warning "INFO: 0 total programmes")
p0147qqb (Attenborough the Early Years, which is a single programme so --pid-recursive wouldn't be required even though it is specified, and which downloaded correctly)
p039wcdk (War and Peace, the recent series now available long-term, which gives the same warning)

What possible settings or options pref's might be causing this unexpected behaviour?  These are new entries in my lists so --Hide should not be having any impact, but I removed it temporarily just to test, with no joy.  I am baffled.  Any ideas?


P.S.  Using Windows get_iplayer 3.14.0 (with ffmpeg n3.1.2 but that's irrelevant at this point!)
