get_iplayer never transcodes video - it only copies the streams from one
file to another with ffmpeg. You have the worst laptop ever if it takes
that long to write afile that's going to be typically < 1 Gb :}
Are you re-muxing from/to an external disk? That can be *very* slow
indeed. If so, it might be better to download/re-mux on your local disk
and dispatch the finished file to an external disk. You can use
--command to do this (or set it in your options file).
