    get-iplayer on 13.04 leaves everything as flv

    noticed that none of the conversions are being done on get-iplayer on 13.04


    if i use tags like --mkv or say
    Code:
    get-iplayer --mode=flashaacstd --aactomp3 --mp3vbr 0 --get 13322

    i end up with an flv each time

    not a huge problem but would be nice to fix

    using get_iplayer v2.82-25-g3547d05-ppa8

    Is get_iplayer looking for ffmpeg? I'm sure I read somewhere that 13.04 has replaced it with avconv or something.
    Sorry, posting from 12.10 so I can't check. I keep meaning to upgrade but not getting around to it.

    haa you have your thinking cap on Coldraven thank you


    i installed ffmpeg with the guide here



    and it requires linking


    so


    Code:
    get-iplayer --mode=flashaacstd --aactomp3 --mp3vbr 0 --get 13322
    becomes


    Code:
    get-iplayer --mode=flashaacstd --aactomp3 --mp3vbr 0 --get 13322 --ffmpeg "/usr/local/bin/ffmpeg"


    had never thought of it so grateful to you
    prefer mkv and m4a/mp3 to flv ::]]

    FWIW, ffmpeg is in 13.04 package repo. It's the libav version, so when you invoke it you get:

    "*** THIS PROGRAM IS DEPRECATED *** This program is only provided for compatibility and will be removed in a future release. Please use avconv instead.

    However, it still works with get_iplayer. ffmpeg is in the "suggests" list for the get-iplayer package, so it's not automatically installed.
