Need to change output directory
#8
Two things here:

You've forgotten the most obvious part: the get_iplayer command itself. You can't use just the
Code:
--output
option without the get_iplayer command. And it makes no sense to run the get_iplayer command with just the
Code:
--output
option - it doesn't do anything.

Hopefully that previous paragraph is irrelevant because you are in fact actually trying to run a complete get_iplayer command. But when I said show us the complete command you are running, I meant exactly that: the complete command. And I told you that the error message has nothing to do with the output directory, yet you only provided the parameter for the output directory. We cannot guess what you are doing - you have to show us. Try again.

Beyond that, your output directory looks a bit suspicious. Do you really have a directory named "i" at the top level of your C: drive? You're using Windows, so specify directory paths in normal Windows format:
Code:
"C:\dir1\dir2"
. get_iplayer can cope with forward slashes, but it doesn't matter if the path is incorrect.
