iPlayer Downloader phones home to Google Analytics. The only reason to do so to my knowledge is to allow Google surveillance of my computer behavior. If your app is going to surveil my computer use, then ASK MY PERMISSION FIRST, DAMMIT. I have used my reverse firewall Little Snitch to deny iPlayer Downloader access to Google Analytics forever. I suggest other folks with reverse firewalls consider doing the same.

When it worked... This and iPlayer Grabber both worked very well though I liked iPlayer Downloader a bit better. Grabber is now abandoned (though open source) and I get the same errors everyone else is reporting. :-( However, the "Get iPlayer Automator" someone else mentioned worked perfectly! If iPlayer Grabber gets updated and can again work with the BBC, I'll switch back as I like the interface better.

I have been able to download Doctor Who episodes from season 6 using iPlayer, though it has not been without frustration. Downloads will occasionally completely fail, however, if I wait a couple days, the download will be successful. The quality of the downloads has varied from near HQ to very poor with many visual artifacts. I have simply tried again and been successful occasionally on downloading the second time. Though there are frustrations, I am in the USA, not the UK, so I will not complain much at all. I love being able to watch my favorite science fiction show, Doctor Who, without waiting for months to a year for them to become available here in the States. Thank you, iPlayer.

Only just downloaded this, but my initial impression is very positive. Downloaded an hour-long programme at the maximum speed our rural exchange can reach - much faster than iPlayer Desktop - and it the resulting mp4 file plays with no hiccup.

Just doesn't work any more. I'm guessing that the BBC have updated their security to stop this software from working. It used to work and I loved it, was a great bit of software. Meant I didn't have to rush to watch programs before they expire.

This product is Great, with a few minor phobias. I have been using it for well over six month and it has gone from strength to strength. Some have found it now download FLV fils-yes but once downloaded they are coverted to MP4. It even now downloads higher quality files so it is almost HD download. Takes a while. The minor One majoe) hickup. It occasionally stops downloading for no obvious reason. You are left with the FLV files. I found that if you down load again it continues on from where it stopped and completes with the Mp4 file when complete. Two problems 1. I started a down load and it stopped and will not download again-DESERTS. 2. If yiou start too many conseq downloads it nearly always fails on some which require re-downloading...

In short this no longer works and will not work for anybody unless the underlying technology is changed or updated. The long version. This software is a wrapper around Paul Battley's iplayer-dl script. That stopped working this week (12/12/10) because the BBC now requires a valid encryption key from approved devices only (i.e. iPhones and iPads). Since Paul has not as yet updated his software (and it may not even be possible to circumvent the protection) his script will no longer work for the foreseeable future. Other downloaders that don't employ Paul's script *may* still work if they scrape the stream straight from the Flash player but not this one. It seems odd that I was only notified of this app update today (16/12/10) when the developer should have realised his app could no longer possibly work since 12/12. I hope no-one has paid any money over before checking that this actually works. I'm being forced to give star ratings now so I'm giving 2.5 across the board because it's not the developer's fault, or Paul Battley's fault that this no longer works. It's the fault of the BBC. Although I think it was disingenuous of the developer to release an update to a program that can not possibly function.

Unfortunately it looks like the spoil sports at Beeb have scuppered it again. I'm getting errors that it's unable to download content. Tried iPlayer Grabber and another app just to see if it was the same there, and so it was. FWIW - I was trying to download this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00r8z1n/Iron_Maiden_Live_in_Concert/ Love this app - Beautifully put together and just so simple, yet effective; hoping a workaround evolves soon as I rely on it while I am out of the country to watch stuff where I don't want a time limit on it or have DRM.

Used to work fine, but I've been trying to download some content for the past 24 hours. Although it puts the icon of the downloaded file on my desktop, the download wont start. I get a Growl notification saying "The requested programme could not be downloaded". After a couple of attempts, the application freezes and has to be force-quitted. This has happened before. Hopefully the developer can get it fixed again. I believe it is something the BBC keep changing and iPlayer Downloader is then unable to find or download the requested files.

simple, easy to use and allows for multiple downloads. I use this mainly for BBC Radio and it's been a godsend. However about a week ago, the app started to crash when I was browsing the various sites (click on Radio7 logo for instance, or TV channels tab). The screen would partially fill, and then it would crash and i'd get the 'ignore, restart or reset' window that apple apps get. Kind of like crash reporter. No matter what I did, I'd get the front page ok but after that any page i tried to browse to would crash the app. I tried to delete the cache this thing stores and the plist entries made no difference. In the end I just restored a back up from Time machine of the app itself (overwrote the original) and it all worked swimmingly for a couple of days, then the problem starts again. It's as if it is struggling to load the pictures and that causes the crash of the app. I can't pinpoint any reason for this, no updates have been installed (Im on all the latest and greatest on 10.5.8), so its a bit frustrating. I guess next stop when it happens again is to look at the crash reporter and see if I can figure it out. Anyone else getting this behaviour? PS Otherwise a really, really, really good app. Thanks.

Works Very Well Thank You! I'm having a blast watching BBC shows at my convenience. While I find little worth watching on U.S. television, it seems like there is far too much good programming on the BBC for the time that I have available. Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword is a riot! There ARE some issues with some programs that can't be downloaded, like the Best of Chewing the Fat. They start... then end leaving a zero byte file and a message that it couldn't be downloaded. I second the request for an ITV Player version as well, though it'll probably be more difficult as it appears that they use Microsoft's Silverlight. For those who don't seem to understand otherwise, the U.K. Resident thing isn't a limitation of this program, just has the Hulu Desktop Viewer limitation to U.S. Resident's isn't a limitation of the desktop viewer. It is a restriction put in place at the servers themselves. The BBC (and ITV as well) have restricted the use of their services to U.K. Residents. Hulu.com has done the same with their service but reserving it for U.S. Residents. As the author alludes, there ARE easy ways around it. All you need is a U.K. IP address. How you get it is your business and you're probably breaking the terms of service of the BBC web services. That said, version 3.3 is working just fine for me here in the U.S. One thing to remember as well... that free UK Proxy service you found... is it legitimate? Or is it run by a couple of teen hackers in their basement while they snag your personal data?

Hi, I'm running OSX 10.5.6 on an intel mac mini. I live abroad but I use a UK proxy server that requires a sign in and password (I pay for it so I dont have to keep finding new open ones, it doesn't cost much) to access iPlayer. Programs stream fine as I can enter the password & username in the prefs in my browser, but I want to download stuff to use on my iPhone. I have entered my proxy settings in prefs, but it doesn't work. The proxy service I use is the 'evaded network'I can't find any open UK proxys to try it out without using my paid for proxy (as I think that this is probably the problem?) any ideas of a workaround? Cheers.

I too need to use a proxy however I cannot get the downloads working. What format do the proxy details need to be placed? I did 00.000.000.00:00000 Is this correct. If so it doesn't seem to work for me. I get the following feedback "The requested program could not be downloaded" which is exactly what I get when trying to use the iPlayer website using a proxy. Any ideas would be gratefully received.

Downloads all now end 'failed' or just unplayable. ( VLC Player or Quicktime ) It started off OK. Last week I was able to download fine. But today every attempt fails. Maybe the BBC are not happy with Mac users being able to download their content ? Pity as this was great to be able to download and watch later, kind of a 'one-off' tool. If anyone else knows a way to cache BBC iPlayer material I would be grateful for a heads up on it.

Great program! Works very reliably for me. Two requests: 1) It would be great if you could queue up more than one download. 2) It would be great if the program added the new files directly into the iTunes library (or at least make this an option). That way I could wake up, go to iplayer - select the progs I want, go have a shower, brekkie, come back and sync the files directly into my iphone.

Very nice. Just testing the radio show feature now. Had a minor issue where I had to run the installer twice to get it to show in Applications. Thanks.

Great stuff! Allows me to watch BBC programmes whenever I want. Would be perfect if it could download high quality versions of the programmes and an ability for multiple downloads.

Great App well done for creating it but I just wondered that because the normal quality of programs streamed on iPlayer isn't very good, is it possibly you could add an option in to download the high quality version as this is a feature BBC have added to each programme page, it just requires a faster connection and is much better quality?

Nope, sorry, it doesn't and probably will not work on Tiger. First off, tiger has a different ruby structure that means the underlying script doesn't always work so great on Ruby. Secondly, and more importantly, it was written for 10.5 with Garbage Collection turned on. it would take a complete code-rewrite to work under Tiger, with memory allocation being done manually, something I'm not altogether good at; I am sorry about this, but I'm afraid whilst Tiger and Leopard look very similar from a user point of view, Apple did a HUGE amount of changes under the hood, making it a lot easier to write apps for 10.5, and I'm afraid you're gonna find a lot of developers will not support Tiger now. I'll have a look into doing a Tiger version, but I honestly doubt it'll happen.

So I got confused right here... did you say it worked on Tiger or not? Cause it sure doesn't where I'm at. Keep us updated here on MU! That app looks pretty nifty from the distance. Thank you very much.

What an excellent little application, well done! One of the few reasons I needed to install windows on my Macbook was for the use of the BBC's iplayer service which is excellent to catch up with events over the past 7 days. A must have for travellers or people who frequently work away from home. I am running leopard on my 2.2Ghz MacBook with 1 Gigabyte of RAM. I downloaded the application and double clicked on the file to install then found the app in my applications folder. You are advised to have the bbc iplayer page open on the program you want to download. I searched for Jonathon Ross and had the BBC iplayer focused on the first episode of the new series (picture of Kelly Brook), displaying the message click to play. I then clicked ok on the BBC iPlayer Downloader application and it worked away in the background until a message appeared a good while later telling me the file had been saved to my desktop. I opened iTunes and clicked add to libary and located the file. It works! picture quality is not HD but that is the same quality as the BBC's own iplayer. legally you will have to delete the files after 30 days to keep in line with the BBC's own policy. The BBC's iplayer automatically deletes files over 30 days, however this will have to be done by yourself. The app does not at present have a way to indicate what stage your download progress is at you just have to be patient. However this is an excellent effort...

Sorry about that - the URL hasn't changed and I didn't want to spam. I'll remember to update here when I've updated my files in future. I have submitted an update now. Cheers!

I've just updated the file up on my website - it'll install on Tiger now. I have no idea if it'll run though but it might do. Can you let me know please so I can update the requirements? Cheers!
