3.25 failure to record with "ERROR:Failed to download URL (3/3)
#1
Hi
I'm new to get_iplayer hope someone can help and have some patience :)
I'm abroad and using NordVPN (paid subscription) to change my IP to the UK.
Using this command

get_iplayer --pid=b0bmbhzb

getting the following error

ERROR: Failed to download URL (3/3): https://open.live.bbc.co.uk/mediaselecto...l?cb=14574
ERROR: Response: 403 Forbidden
ERROR: Access to this resource was blocked by the BBC
ERROR: Ignore this error if programme download is successful

Any idea?
Thanks

I have the same problem in exactly the same circumstances...
#3
"The Bank That Almost Broke Britain" is not currently available on iPlayer, that is probably why you are getting that error.
#4
Not in my case. I was trying to download m000hkb3 "One World Together At Home".

You need to read the bit that says "access to this resource was blocked by the BBC".

>I'm abroad and using NordVPN (paid subscription) to change my IP to the UK.

So you're admitting that you are in breach of the BBC's terms of use. In public. Hmm.
