How do I record live streams?
#1
Hello

I have version 3.06 on Windows 7 laptop.  I have spent all evening trying to get a live stram of a BBC service recording but it won't work.

The only way you can record is to use a PID of a programme page, and not the PID of the stream.  They are different.

Please can you tell us exactly what to type to record a live stream of say BBC2 Scotalnd for example.

Thanks
James

(and BTW I can lo longer post to the mailing list.  Please can you sort this out.

Thanks

Live streams are no longer supported by get_iplayer.

So does it work on older versions?

It used to on ver2.97 but haven't tried for a while. better to use ffmpeg - this worked yesterday:

ffmpeg -reconnect 1 -reconnect_at_eof 1 -reconnect_streamed 1 -reconnect_delay_max 300 -i "http://a.files.bbci.co.uk/media/live/manifesto/audio/simulcast/hls/uk/sbr_high/ak/bbc_radio_three.m3u8" -c copy -t 01:40:00 C:\Radio_recordings\Jazz2017.12.30.ts

Thank you for that. Can't do it with ffmpeg as I have an older version but it does play with VLC.

Thanks

Just reinstalled ver 2.97 and it will no longer record. But, this command will record BBC One using ffmpeg:

ffmpeg -y -i "http://a.files.bbci.co.uk/media/live/manifesto/audio_video/simulcast/hls/uk/abr_hdtv/ak/bbc_one_hd.m3u8" -c copy "C:\Users\Pcuser\Desktop\iPlayer Recordings\BBC1.ts"

The last code within "" tells ffmpeg where to save the ts file.

BBC Two England is: http://a.files.bbci.co.uk/media/live/man...gland.m3u8

BBC Four is:

Hope this helps.
