iPlayer downloader.

Overview

The goal of Get iPlayer Automator is to allow iTunes and your Mac to become the hub for your British Television experience regardless of where in the world you are.

Currently, Get iPlayer Automator allows you to download and watch BBC and ITV shows on your Mac. Series-Link/PVR functionality ensures you will never miss your favorite shows. Programmes are fully tagged and added to iTunes automatically upon completion. It is simple and easy to use, and runs on any machine running OS X 10.6 or later.

And since the shows are in iTunes, it is extremely easy to transfer them to your iPod, iPhone, or Apple TV allowing you to enjoy your shows on the go or on your television.

What's new in Get iPlayer Automator

Version 1.16.1:
  • Get iPlayer Automator is now ready for use on macOS Catalina (10.15)! TV programs will be added to TV.app, and radio programs will be added to Music.app. Due to a bug in macOS shows tagged as podcasts will open in Music.app but can't be played. Also, because it was ported from iOS, Podcasts.app is not scriptable and cannot accept externally created m4a files. As a result, if you use the "Tag radio programmes as podcasts" your only option right now is to use QuickTime Player.app, or turn off this checkbox and play them through Music.app. We hope this bug is fixed in a future version of macOS.

Another developer seems to have taken over, and their latest beta version is working perfectly as I write this: https://github.com/Ascoware/get-iplayer-automator/releases -- good news!

I think it's great. Hope there will be an update soon so that shows go into the TV app on Mac OS Catalina. Still works but just doesn't automatically out the shows in.

Using v 1.15.2 and trying to download fleabag. Searching fro the program returns "no shows found" Trying with "use current webpage" the status shows as available which changes to "waiting" once I click start, but then quickly changes back to available without downloading the show. Does anyone have any helpful suggestions?

I’m using V 1.14.3. Had a few issues with it over the past few days, seemed to sort itself out and started downloading ok again - but, the file sizes for 30min BBC episode have suddenly gone wild - downloading at 3GB! Any advice on where I should be looking to reduce file sizes please?

If version 1.14 is crashing, remove or delete the file history.gia from ~user/Library/Application Support/Get iPlayer Automator

Yes, thank you very much! That did the trick! Hmmm, I've been playing with Macs since my LC475, but didn't know about this one. Thanks again.

Hello - the current version (1.13.19) doesn't appear to support BBC Radio: is that correct?
