How do I change the get_iplayer output folder?
#1
Hello,

I am really sorry to post here as this is most likely a simple error I am making but I am having difficulty changing the download folder for my get-iplayer. I have done this in the past on my old vista windows pc but I am struggling with my windows 7 PC.

I am putting in the command like this:

get_iplayer --output "C:\Users\ElizabethsPC\Downloads\get_iplayer"

the response I get is 0 Matching Programmes

I have tried omiting the get_iplayer at the start and get the error '--output' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable or batch file.

I have tried various permutations and altering the slashes forwards and back to no avail.

Could someone advise me of what I am doing wrong?

Many thanks for your help!

Thank you so much ethereal, I have no idea why I was being so dense. It has of course worked right away, thank you again!
