Rise of the E-Reader - BBC Radio 4

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode...ow_29_12_2009/

This was on BBC Radio 4 yesterday (I think iPlayer is UK only, sorry!), I haven't listened to it all yet. Anybody else listened to it?

Well I enjoyed it. One bit that I found funny was 'sand and salad cream', I personally have never found any such products in my paper books We need more authors like Hillary Mantel for one.

IPlayer TV is UK only. The radio streams are global.

BBC World Service ran it the other day. Caught it on the air, good story.

For what it's worth - the streams are *not* global; there are issues to do with transmission rights, particularly for sports or music shows which prevent their distribution outside the UK. That said, *most* radio is distributed globally - though a non-UK user doesn't get *quite* the same stream as the UK listener in some cases. Very little TV is available outside the UK.

(I spent a year working behind the scenes on the iplayer launch last year).

Google "get_iplayer" - it's a tool which allows you to permanently save iPlayer stuff.

Thanks for that, Harry. I'll give it a go.

I generally use Total Recorder (from www.HighCriteria.com) to "tape" an iPlayer stream so that I can listen to it later when I don't have an Internet connection (for example, from my iPod when I'm on the train). From what I can see of Get_Iplayer, it could be a bit easier to use.

It's got a zillion options, but it does work very well indeed. I use it to save stuff for my iPod, too. Its benefit is that it's not "real time" - it just downloads the whole thing and converts it to MP3.

Can somebody give a small recap? I'm behind an internet connection that doesn't like streams in any form...

Another option for Mac users is iPlayer Downloader. Google it.

Also, for Usenet users, there are a couple of newsgroups that carry BBC radio broadcasts
