BBC iPlayer - anyone watching this?

Fabulous source of quality programming and great music. If you're not watching this, you should be.

But there are some annoying hangups re time limitations. Sure wish I had a method...

Of course. The legal iPlayer WWW add-on for Kodi works great as long as you use a smart DNS or VPN service that makes it look like you're in the UK.

I'm not using Kodi, I just use the legit iPlayer software, and of course a DNS spoofing service.

What I want to know is if anyone knows how to remove the time restrictions without re-encoding the file. Searching on this gets you a million hits for garbage software. :(

install "get_iplayer" (google it). It downloads iPlayer programs as DRM-free mp4 files that you can keep permanently. Not the most intuitive software, but it's free and it works!

Alternatively, you can also use a site like PreDB to see if any scene groups have already captured and released the shows which you want copies of.
