Get iPlayer Automator 1.8.2 Build 1726

Simple to use and streamlined OS X utility designed to make it as easy as possible to download shows from BBC iPlayer, ITV Catchup and 4oD
Both the BBC and ITV television stations provide certain programmes online, and you can easily watch them on your Mac via dedicated desktop players. To push things even further, the Get iPlayer Automator utility enables you to download the video content, in order to be played on any software you like, any time you want.

User friendly download manager featuring an organized GUI

Due to its streamlined workflow, finding your way around the Get iPlayer Automator main window is fairly easy: start by searching for the show you want to download, add it to the download queue, and then start the download process.

Get iPlayer Automator will quickly transfer the items to your Mac, and you can specify the output folder in the app’s Preferences window. The same area allows you to setup proxies, to adjust the rules for failed downloads, to decide if the subtitles should be included in the download, and so on.

Transform your Mac into a hub for the British Television programms

When the download process is over, Get iPlayer Automator launches your iTunes application and automatically imports the new media content to your library. As a result, you will always have access to the BBC or ITV programmes within your player, and you will be able to quickly move them to other Apple devices, including the Apple TV.

To make sure you will never miss your favorite shows, Get iPlayer Automator also includes a PVR function that enables you to quickly download all the available episodes for a specific program.

By default, Get iPlayer Automator will download only the episodes that aired on the same network, but if you replace the network name with an asterisk, it will process episodes from any network.

Straightforward software solution for downloading BBC and ITV shows without too much trouble

Get iPlayer Automator offers you the possibility to download shows to your computer, and watch them whenever you like, even if the episodes are no longer available online.
