get_iplayer installation guides
COMPREHENSIVE GUIDES TO GET YOU STARTED QUICKLY
Before you begin: Linux/Unix packages are maintained by volunteers and may not be updated for some time after a new release of get_iplayer, thus the version of get_iplayer packaged for your system may be obsolete. You can find the version number of the latest get_iplayer release here. If the version packaged for your system is older than the latest release, it is likely that some functionality is broken. After following the instructions below, you may wish to uninstall the get_iplayer package and use the manual installation instructions to install the latest get_iplayer CLI and Web PVR Manager.
These instructions are for Mageia 5. These instructions assume you are logged in as root, but you may also perform the installation commands with
Command-line Interface (CLI)
Ensure media sets are up-to-date
urpmi.update -a tainted
(Re-)Install programs from tainted media set
urpmi --media tainted ffmpeg rtmpdump librtmp1
urpmi --media tainted ffmpeg rtmpdump lib64rtmp1
This step is necessary because the restricted versions of these programs in the core and non-free media sets do not fully support all get_iplayer functionality.
Install get_iplayer and related applications
urpmi get_iplayer atomicparsley
Install Perl modules
urpmi perl-MP3-Tag perl-MP3-Info perl-XML-Simple perl-Net-SMTP-SSL perl-Authen-SASL perl-Net-SMTP-TLS-ButMaintained
Run CLI with:
Web PVR Manager (WPM)
The WPM is not installed with the get_iplayer package. Use the manual installation procedure.
