Have you ever wondered how you can download a video from BBC iPlayer and play it without it ever expiring? Itís a well-known fact that days after youíve downloaded a programme from the BBC iPlayer that it will be unavailable and will have expired, meaning you canít play it. This article isnít intended to encourage law breaking; this article was written to solve a problem. It should also be noted that things can change, this tutorial method was working on the 19/01/2014. It’s possible that in the future this method will no longer work.
There are many tutorials floating around the internet recommending software etc that remove DRM, however, none of these appear to work anymore.
BBC programmes arenít available for those outside of the UK. If your IP address isnít UK based, then you wonít be able to use this method.

- Now youíll be presented with the latest available programmes for what you entered. Youíll notice that each programme has an ID number.
- Choose which you want and then type get_iplayer –get ďID goes hereĒ. Donít forget to hit enter. Put the ID of the programme you want where it says ďID goes hereĒ, donít type the Ellipsis. †An example would be: get_iplayer –get 255. Hit Enter.
