Well it works for me..with some issues. Can download content but I got error messages several times using the same command however it eventually did the biz. So frankly Awesome when you think what its got to do and it just asks for a bit of patience. Great would love an easy GUI though as I am lazy.

Takes some figuring out how to use it, but then it's great.

I gave up on get-iplayer years ago on windows as it stopped working, but i have just migrated to Linux Mint 13 and it works like a charm! No Problems and i'm a complete newbie! EXCELLENT!

As a user, and not a programmer I stay away from programmes without a GUI. However, read the online documentation and this is excellent and really easy to use
