    Ok, so I've got a couple of HD episodes of Dr. Who downloaded and on my PC. I want to somehow remove whatever encryption or DRM that's on it...for free. That last bits the kicker. Apparently the file's encrypted and only the iPlayer software can decode it and that's how the keep the time limit. I've been trying to do some research myself but all I can find is info on how to remove DRM from the old WMV format they used to use (somebody cracked it). Anybody seen/heard of anything that will do the job?

    Haven't heard of anything. Can you not download it in WMV still as one of the download options on the iPlayer page for the show? Or is that just standard definition?

    It's been done in the past but the BBC are very quick at making sure their DRM's are safe from hacking.

    Installed (and had virus alerts soon after, used a crack beforehand though so not sure it's this) and can't make it download the HD doctor who episodes. Tried --get 150 --mode=flashhd but it fails

    Why not just torrent the episodes instead? Get the HD rips and you'll get the same quality without any of the hassle.

    This. Don't re-invent the wheel, just download a DVD-Rip.

    Use one of those iplayer downloader apps, easier than the command line tools.

    THat's the non-HD version. Look at the size: 640x360

    Error has to do with not being able to access the SWF player on the BBC site


    Edit: Hmm, interesting. Got it running for Day of the Moon but can't make it run for the impossible astronaut which is still available Actually never mind, it only just manages to connect. No real downloading happening. Says "STream does not start with expected frame"

    Also, in my opinion this isn't reinventing the wheel. THis is trying to access a service I can get normally without limits, having a downloader for it (albeit it in command line form) to get DRM free is handy to me. If I could somehow use the files I've already downloaded directly from the BBC even better

    Use this command:
    Code:
    get_iplayer --pid b010y5l3 --vmode=flashhd

    Bump, I know.
    Noticing a pattern. It gets to about 5% then can't says "cannot read header".
    There's also a problem near the start to do with swfvfy. I have no idea how to use that command though to see if it will help at all.

    ipdl.exe was a pretty good one but that stopped working quite a while ago.

    Torrent sounds like pretty much the easiest option of those available.
