    How do I convert iPlayer videos? (DRM)

    Views : 2057 Replies : 1 Likes : 0 #1

    This is a BBC video download and I want to convert to play on anything without DRM and 30-day time limit:
    The file is over 900Mb and in MP4 format.

    Let’s convert it to SWF 1080p
    Output the converted file to the desktop:
    Click Start and this is what happens every time:
    It does not matter what settings I use the result is always the same.

    What is going wrong?
    (VLC is my default video player but it won’t play BBC videos.)

    I found out how to do it.

    Don’t use the BBC’s iPlayer downloader (which cripples the file with restrictions).

    1. Use the Streaming Video Recorder’s own RTMP file downloader which will download in FLV format.

    2. When the files are downloaded (there are at least 3 files) find the main program and delete the others.

    3. You can now convert the FLV file to anything you want without DRM or time limit.

    (FLV format is also about 60% the size of the iPlayer MP4 format.)
