    Hello,

    I'd like to download this video from the BBC that's only accessible to people living in the UK.

    Do you know of a simple solution? Tor + Youtubedl?

    Thank you.

    VPN is not always needed,if you can find reliable proxy. In youtube-dl just add --proxy (address) to the commandline.
    I think BBC used to work with streamlink as well,if it does,can add --http-proxy or --https-proxy followed by address to commandline too.

    Thanks. Youtube-dl doesn't seem happy, but I'll look deeper:

    Code:
    $ youtube-dl --proxy 167.172.159.177:40001 https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000n990

  8. Not all proxies will work (not all VPNs will work). Keep trying different ones. And keep in mind that the owners of those proxies don't like you using their bandwidth. They often change addresses or filter their traffic. So one that works for downloading video today may not work tomorrow.

    In addition, some websites block known VPN and proxy IP addresses or if they're overused. Which is another reason free proxies are changed so often.

    Also, never, ever use a free proxy or VPN to send any private information, even site logins as they may be monitored by outsiders or even by the owners of the proxy. At the very least, most free providers log and sell your browsing info to marketers.

    get nordvpn, use nordlynx protocol, and BBC works on any UK vpn server with them. ;P
    also,if you want to download only from bbc, imho .... you want "get iplayer @ github" software, not youtube-dl... it's everything you need... (along with a connection in the UK..)
    personally i only use "get iplayer", i like it's scheduled recording,and that it writes the full (metadata) info about the video,into the video file, downloads subtitles and converts them into .SRT (if available...) and let's you to choose 25 or 50 fps, in it's simple GUI (..which opens in a tab in your default web-browser...)
    unlike youtube-dl,which only fetches the possible avail links on the bbc web-url (the link you provide it with...), "get iplayer" uses all available official bbc links (eg. ipad+android).



    README.md
    get_iplayer: BBC iPlayer/BBC Sounds Indexing Tool and PVR
    Features

    Downloads TV and radio programmes from BBC iPlayer/BBC Sounds
    Allows multiple programmes to be downloaded using a single command
    Indexing of most available iPlayer/Sounds catch-up programmes from previous 30 days (not BBC Three, Red Button, iPlayer Exclusive, or Podcast-only)
    Caching of programme index with automatic updating
    Regex search on programme name
    Regex search on programme description and episode title
    Filter search results by channel
    Direct download via programme ID or URL
    PVR capability (may be used with cron or Task Scheduler)
    HTTP proxy support
    Perl 5.16+ required, plus LWP, LWP::Protocol::https, XML::LibXML, Mojolicious, and CGI modules
    Requires ffmpeg for conversion to MP4 and AtomicParsley for metadata tagging
    Runs on Linux/BSD (Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenBSD and others), macOS (10.10+), Windows (7/8/10)

    NOTE:

    get_iplayer can only search for programmes that were scheduled for broadcast on BBC linear services within the previous 30 days, even if some are available for more than 30 days on the iPlayer/Sounds sites. BBC Three programmes, red button programmes, iPlayer box sets, iPlayer exclusives, and BBC podcasts are not searchable. Old programmes that are still available after 30 days must be located on the iPlayer/Sounds sites and downloaded directly via PID or URL, but such use is not supported..
    get_iplayer does not support downloading news/sport videos, other embedded media, archive sites, special collections, educational material, programme clips or any content other than whole episodes of programmes broadcast on BBC linear services within the previous 30 days, plus episodes of BBC Three programmes posted within the same period. It may be possible to download other content such as red button programmes or iPlayer box sets directly via PID or URL, but such use is not supported. get_iplayer DOES NOT support live recording from BBC channels.

    Just use a VPN or proxy in the correct country. Beyond that it's the same as non geo restricted videos.
