    Re: has get-iplayer just been broken?

    ok that works had seen it earlier here but not tried it

    it is the latest and works
    on Ubuntu I had to do this

    copy new code text and paste here instead of old one


    Code:
    sudo gedit /usr/bin/get-iplayer
    I did not bother replacing get_iplayer as i never use it written that way but do same if you wish to add


    HOPefully

    when Jon Hedgerows next updates PPA it will pick up where we have left it now
    Until then it is a fix will mark as solved... again thanx hutchinsfairy and all of you guys

    I pulled the change line from the bottom of the thread proseak linked to, edited it into get_iplayer.pl and it seems to work fine on windoze (am I allowed to mention that word here?).

    Then I noticed that shantiq had already done all the hard work. Ho hum.

    Thanks guys, I was getting very frustrated about this.

    Has also happend to me, since about the 5 Jun 13. I am using a Ubuntu 12.10 on a HTPC server.

    INFO Connected...
    Caught signal: 13, cleaning up, just a second...
    ERROR: WriteN, RTMP send error 32 (42 bytes)
    ERROR: TRMP_ReadPacket, failed to read RTMP packet header
    INFO: Command exit code 1 (raw code = 256)
    WARNING: Failed to stream file..

    Using version 2.82 of get_iplayer I am using.

    No need to edit the get_iplayer script to fix BBC downloads. You can temporarily update your preferences until a new get_iplayer release arrives. See:

    Thanks dinkypumpkin.
    So for those in any doubt, just open a terminal & copy & paste the following command:
    Code:
    get_iplayer --prefs-add --rtmp-tv-opts="--swfVfy=http://www.bbc.co.uk/emp/releases/iplayer/revisions/617463_618125_4/617463_618125_4_emp.swf"
    
    Get-iplayer should now work correctly.

    Re: Has get-iplayer just been broken?

    hi broomie it corrects the new settings from the Beeb but you cannot use the change of get-iplayer code page in /usr/bin for the new one and run

    the command
    Code:
    get_iplayer --prefs-add --rtmp-tv-opts="--swfVfy=http://www.bbc.co.uk/emp/releases/iplayer/revisions/617463_618125_4/617463_618125_4_emp.swf"

    that puts you back to where you were ... i tried it :::]]]


    then had to go to
    sudo gedit /home/username/.get_iplayer/options and remove the line




    So to summarize either replace
    get-iplayer code page in /usr/bin for the new one or use the command

    Dinkypumpkin is the one who knows how it is rigged up so i placed the command as solution on first post [but the other route works equally well] .... is what i understand
    i am personally happy with the /usr/bin swap


    Anyway most of us are with Hedgerows PPA as i understand it; no doubt will soon be updated ; in the meantime VERY grateful to Dinky here

    Re: Has get-iplayer just been broken?

    shantiq: You're right - it's redundant to both edit /usr/bin/get_iplayer and add the SWF player URL as a preference. FWIW, I recommend setting the preference rather than editing the script. It's less error-prone, no permission issues, easier to undo. BTW, you don't need to edit $HOME/.get_iplayer/options to remove the preference. Just run the same command again with --prefs-del instead of --prefs-add:

    Code:
    get_iplayer --prefs-del --rtmp-tv-opts="--swfVfy=http://www.bbc.co.uk/emp/releases/iplayer/revisions/617463_618125_4/617463_618125_4_emp.swf"
