A new windows Automated Installer v2.4+ has been released for get_iplayer. Most notably it installs a version of flvstreamer that uses cygwin libraries rather than the version compiled using mingw32. This reportedly helps resolve the notorious ‘10060’ flvstreamer error that many users were getting. The non-cygwin flvstreamer is still available as an install-time option.

    Thanks a lot!
    Report me as one of the users getting that error.
    Hope this new realese works for me now.
    I’ll come back to tell. 🙂

        Thanks, this works great.

        First downloaded get_iplayer at the start of the year. Worked great until one this error message rendered the script useless. But all working great now. Can download lovelly HD H.264 without watching it over yucky flash! 🙂

          Hi – totally new to get_iplayer – used the latest file above to install and managed to record BBC – used the –type=itv as per the documentation to try to get a programme from the itv player but get an error that itv is not valid – what am I doing wrong?

            Sorry – I’ve removed the references to ITV in the documantition now since it is no longer supported.

            I love get_iplayer but it peaked with being able to get all the channels, now to be left with BBC only it’s sadly losing its charm.
            what has happened? are you being sued/threatened

              No. ITV radically changed their site and I guess someone will have to rewrite the plugin. Ch4 just kept permanently blacklisting IPs to make life difficult for users so rather than annoy users I dropped it. I suggest getting a TV/PVR 🙂

              Could you please add proxy support to your NSIS installer? I think there are plugins that make it possible.

              It’s not clear where to put the ffmpeg/flvstreamer files etc. if I download them manually when the installer fails to. (Also I had to look through proxy logs to find out exactly which locations to download from). Also the installer silently failed to download the perl script too.

              Alternatively, could you make a zipped version of the software available with everything in it and ready to go?

                A few days ago there was an extended website outage here when our hosting provider decided to take a long time to fix their systems – that would have caused the installer to fail. I’ve migrated the hosting elsewhere during the outage so hopefully we’ll not have the same problem for a while…

                The NSIS script is distributed with the installer. If you manage to get it working please let me know and I’ll release a new one.
