Made a typo in output directory value - where did my file go? - pwl2706 - 25-09-2018

Hi,

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

Code:
C:\WINDOWS\system32>get_iplayer https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0bhrfhk/bodyguard-series-1-episode-2 --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.
