BBC iPlayer video details can't be accessed

Postby davidbr » 17 May 2020, 23:15

Hi Chris,

My ChrisPC Free VideoTube Downloader isn't recognising a BBC iPlayer programme from earllier today (May 17).

When I copy the URL I get a "Video details can't be accessed" warning pop-up. Full details:

"Video details can't be accessed for video: "Match of The Day Live, 1998 Fifa World Cup, Second Round - England V Argentina" You might need a UK VPN in order to access this video."

I am in the UK.

Other iPlayer programmes from May 17 can be accessed. I'm hoping this isn't a new obstacle just for BBC sport programming.

Thanks for your help.

Version 12.05.22 should fix the issue.

that one worked after uploading the new version. however since then ive had trouble with two others:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p ... ter-united

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m ... lands-1978


saying "it has not detected a valid video file - on the history it came up as a "flv" file which may be why...

there are going to be a couple more in the next day or so that I will want to download - hope they don't go the same way!

Confirm that BBC is giving problems:

I also got the flv file type for this (and other episodes)
https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m ... episode-14

This is when I connect via SmartDNS or via vpn

When I launch the Video Link Finder (in Chrome Mode) it does play the video and once it starts playing i can hit download and it then starts downloading.

So ultimately i can get it to work but i need to find all the programs via Video link finder

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m ... -ussr-1982

can also be added to the BBC "only seems to be in FLV" list - seems like they've put another change in. I can download direct from there - I hope I cn then convert to MP4 and by-pass (if it still does so) the bit where the file is automatically wiped after 30 days...
