Windows GUI for iPlayer DownloaderPlease note that recently there have been problems downloading iPhone/iPod shows from BBC iPlayer. Paul Battley has provided an update to his Ruby Sciipt at the address below, unfortunately I haven't had time to update my code yet to use it, sorry. I shall be aiming to get it done by the end of the month. Sorry for the delay
iPlayerDownloader is a Windows GUI for the excellent ruby script that Paul Battley has written: http://po-ru.com/projects/iplayer-downloader/
This application will let you download and save BBC iPlayer programmes for your iPod/iPhone that are DRM free.
