I've just followed Oscar 799's instructions to install "get_iplayer", and have started it downloading the film I missed on BBC2 last night!
It all seems to be happening!
Terminal is clocking up the kb's and so far it's about 20% done!
Just one question, assuming it all goes to plan, can I create a file that I could play on my Samsung Galaxy S3?
You see I have a massive acreage of Ext SD Card available (64GB) that I'm a bit miffed about being unable to shift Apps to, in order to leave the phone's primary memory uncluttered.
Hmm... nothing's simple is it?
There was a message saying "error reading header at 40 odd percent"...or words to that effect but it carried on downloading and at the end there was loads of lines of "progress" indicated in percent, finishing with:-
Finished writing to temp file."
I have no idea what to do now!
or where Temp File can be accessed.
Sought help from Oscar 799 via pm.
Since I'm not really used to using the Terminal interface, and I couldn't find evidence that "get_iplayer" had installed via the menus, I thought it wasn't installed, so attempted to start again!
Terminal soon put me right!...

I eventually stumbled across it, and wadaya know! it plays!
As this is a .mp4 file, can I just transfer it directly to my galaxy S3 Phone and expect it to play?
I'm hoping to build a little library of films that I can squirrel away on my phone so that when I'm at my holiday apartment, I can use an MHL lead to view them on the TV there.
