Hi Bat Guano,
as you suggsted I upgraded get_iplayer a couple of weeks ago, tried using the --pid option as you
suggested, but it still didn't work (still stuck on "Connecting...").
get_iplayer continued to work for all the other radio programmes I
wanted to download except this one ("On The Wire" from Radio
I was going to rerun with --verbose and submit
details, but haven't had time recently. Anyway, I've just retried it
and it's now working. No idea why it has now started working again, but I conclude this was a server side
problem at the BBC's end. Does anybody know whether all programmes come
from a single source, or do (in this case) Radio Lancashire run their
own service separate from other stations?
