New Problem with BBC iPlayer from today

Postby hans302 » 22 Nov 2017, 19:08

Hi - I always have to use LINK FINDER for BBC iPlayer downloads owing to a Frame Rate issue with Apple TV - Now when using LINK FINDER instead of just 2 LINKS to choose from, the program lists around 50 links. None of them contain the actual link to the full programme stream.

Also when trying to select 25 FPS FLV for BBC iPlayer downloads on the main page - A "DOWNLOAD FAILED" message always appears after around 5 seconds of trying.

Just thought I would let you know. - See below for Images of issues.

You probably use a VPN or other similar services, that's why FLV fails for you. Just try another UK VPN.
Regarding Link Finder, try using Internet Explorer mode.

Hi

You probably use a VPN or other similar services, that's why FLV fails for you. Just try another UK VPN.
Regarding Link Finder, try using Internet Explorer mode.


REF DOWNLOAD FAILED MESSAGE - It's not a VPN issue as I am in the UK and even with the 3rd Party VPN I use for US downloads is switched off the error still occurs.

REF LINK FINDER ISSUE -
I had already tried LINK FINDER with Internet Explorer mode and the 50 LINKS still appear in that mode too.

This is why I posted the query, as I had tried loads of different settings with no joy.

Hope you can investigate still further?

The LINK (IMAGE) of Rick Stein in my original post now works with LINK FINDER - Very strange, not changed any settings on my PC not re-booted. I now get just 2 streams and as with all BBC downloads with LINK FINDER the 2nd stream is the one to select. - So that seems OK now

However I still get the DOWNLOAD FAILED message when selecting 25 FPS FLV with that LINK on the main download screen with the same LINK - link is.........

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b ... -episode-3

The MP4 streams download OK - But I never use them owing to the Audio Video Sync issue when the final MP4 file is stitched together and the comparability issue with it playing correctly on Apple TV.

Thanks in advance

FLV download works without issues for this video.

Does the download fail from the start? or after getting some % ?

If it's from the start, you should check if you can download any ITV stream.

Try to download another quality, not 2800.
If this still fails, try using a UK VPN or unotelly.com

They moving all the streams in browsers to DASH MPD.
Next version will have support for MPD and will "detect" the old F4M streams too.
