I wonder if you can help me. I keep getting the under noted error message, no matter what I try to record. I have uninstalled and reinstalled but it makes no difference.

I have installed get_iplayer on a Windows Vista 32bit virtual machine and on a Windows 7 32bit VM on the same computer and it works perfectly well.

Do you have any idea what is going on and how I can fix it? Any advice would be gratefully received.

After Phil Lewis dropped development, a few forks of get_iplayer appeared so you might be using a not so good/up-to-date one.

Try completely uninstalling and then installing using this link from infradead.org

I suggest this because looking at the output, it doesn't actually appear to be hitting an error per se, it's just recognising a limitation of software you have installed. Software which get_iplayer installed for you specifically.

Hopefully you got this issue sorted, looks like it is a question of updating as the other commenter said.

I have written a quite comprehensive beginners guide to get_iPlayer which might be of use to others who find this post, or even you if you are still having trouble. You can find it here:

Welcome to Super User! Generally we like answers on the site to be able to stand on their own - Links are great, but if that link ever breaks the answer should have enough information to still be helpful. Please consider editing your answer to include more detail. See the FAQ for more info. –  slm Apr 7 '13 at 10:50
