Sigh. get_iplayer was amazing and now it looks like it's dead. It was working but now I get this when I try to download some progs (some still download)...

INFO: No specified modes (iphone,flashhigh,flashstd,flashnormal) available for this programme with version 'default' (try modes: flashhd1,flashhd2)
ERROR: Failed to record 'Tinga Tinga Tales - Why Porcupine Has Quills (b00r4x41)

I've read other threads on the demise of get_iplayer and am really pi$$ed about it. Can anyone help with the above?

I do hope someone picks up the get_iplayer baton sometime soon.

Actually folks it seems to be just the HD content that's not downloading. Any fixes?

I'm so cross with the BBC. So mean spirited.

I don't see a listing for 'Tinga Tinga Tales - Why Porcupine Has Quills' on the HD site..

'Tinga Tinga Tales - Why Lions Roar' is on there (currently) so try:

get_iplayer -g --pid b00qtn10 --vmode=flashhd
works for me.

Also, someone has forked it on github, so hopefully it's not dead.
