get-iplayer

This will be lost on most LMDE users who are not UK based and don't have access to the BBC! poor things. :(
I have just started to use get-iplayer to download video and copy across to my HTC Flyer. (Can't do it direct! -- too long to explain)
Having installed the package and then used it, I tried to locate it in the 'applications' section and it's not visible. Am I missing something or is it just one of those programs which needs to be actioned through terminal? It's no great shakes either way, I just don't want to be missing something simple
Thanks
Andrew

get_iplayer is a command line application
But there is a GUI available as a .deb package
http://sourceforge.net/projects/giplayer/files/

Many thanks

I'll check it out.

Having checked it out, if it's of interest to anybody UK based, this a basic but quite handy app and I've used it successfully on a number of occasions. Well worth investigating.

This no longer works on the latest version of Mint. Gives Error Message

Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: Python gnome desktop (>=2.16)

That post was made 18 months ago
It doesn't look like giplayer is still being maintained

According to http://rg3.github.io/youtube-dl/supportedsites.html youtube-dl works with bbc.co.uk. It has no GUI but is really simple to use.

get_iplayer itself is still available and works with Mint 16
Instructions here:-
https://github.com/dinkypumpkin/get_iplayer/wiki/ubuntu

It's the GUI that doesn't seem to be available anymore
