get-iplayer is fixed

Post by Oscar799 »

For the last couple of weeks get-iplayer has been failing to download TV shows from the BBC site - a Google search has shown this has been a common problem.
get-iplayer is run in terminal and is very useful when the iPlayer GUI is misbehaving.
A level 3 update available today in MintUpdate solves the problem and it is now working perfectly again :D
get-iplayer is available in Synaptic Package Manager.
Instructions on how to use it are here http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.p ... er#p237907

W00t!

One of my favourite pieces of software. Thanks for the heads-up!
