View Full Version : get_iplayer stopped streaming

28th August 2011, 07:00 PM

I've just installed get_iplayer and it was working fine. Using the command:
get_iplayer --stdout --get 123 | mplayer -cache 3072 -
I could stream and play the required program.

I also had a look at and played about with the web pvr manager for a little while and eventually managed to store and play a file using that.

However after that the above command stopped working giving the following output:
get_iplayer --stdout --get 123 | mplayer -cache 3072 -

Anyone any idea what may have happened here ?

It seems if I use either --stdout --nowrite or --stream this works ok.
