I couldn't see anything specific on this in the lists - please forgive
if it's already been covered and my non-technical expertise.
Get_iplayer was set up by a friend.
Using Windows 7 and get_iplayer to download radio shows with the following:

system(" \.\\ -o downloads --force --get $line --modes

This used to download mp3s then it started downloading aacs which I
converted. Now it's download mostly mp3s but they are unplayable
according to Real Player.

Any suggestions on how this can be fixed please ?

Radio 4 Extra patch applied - thx to jon at

Cheers - Joe
