Hi, popy. It is probably because your computer is in heavy task or iTunes is not installed correctly. You can uninstall this program and iTunes. And then re-install them respectively. When you convert the files, you'd better close all the unnecessary processes.
This all seems to depend on a screen capture from iTunes. In fact, that's really what it is - a screen capture, not a stripping of DRM at all. Is there a solution that will take the source file, strip the DRM and provide a converted, DRM-removed output?
Is that a new feature, then? Because although the article text is a little ambiguous, the "how to" video most definitely shows the software doing a screencapture of the iPlayer site from a web browser window (at a rather weird 780 x 560 resolution, no less)... in fact the preview it shows whilst converting is of the iPlayer SITE, rather than a video being played through it! What you describe sounds more like the old Streamcapture utilities that were so useful back in the day ... if it operated more like that, then it'd be far preferable. Screencap is a terrible solution because a/ it only operates at 1:1 speed, and then you may well have to do a further conversion step afterwards (get_iplayer can, on a good day, be equivalent to recording at 10x speed including all processing overheads, and even faster for radio), b/ you have to have a fairly powerful machine for it, ruling out things like lower end convertible tablets and the old Pentium-M laptop I had been using until now for downloading, c/ YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING ELSE OF ANY NOTE WITH THE MACHINE WHILST THE CAPTURE IS RUNNING lest it interfere with the process! Even if you have it shuttled off to a secondary monitor, you can't play a game (too much system load), watch another video (as the soundtracks will overlap, and a lot of graphics chipsets don't support multi-monitor video overlays anyhow), load anything that might default to putting its window on the wrong monitor, etc... and you would also have to turn off all windows system sounds and disable/avoid all other programs that might make noise or create popups. Which, these days, means most daily-use websites are out. So, please, which is it, and do you have suitable proof?
Is itunes required to use this program? I don't use and couldn't care less about itunes and your program is giving an "itunes not installed" warning. Do i really need it to convert/download videos from a source that's NOT itunes?
Actually, you can directly download BBC videos with the built-in online video downlaoder. Aimersoft Video Converter Ultimate do support downloading videos from BBC.
What, so the recommended method for this is "use a screencapture utility"? Like, Camstudio or similar? IE there's no way to actually convert the files directly without having the BBC player application decode and display them first? That's going to require a pretty hefty PC if you want to have decent results, especially in HD.
Hi, Aimersoft Video Converter Ultimate is upgraded to a new version recently. You can check it out.
Are there any updates planned to your software to allow this process to work since the September 2013 update to iplayer which means no more wmv files??
So if you read between the lines, what you are saying it is impossible to actually convert mp4 files to anything without 'recording' to another format first?
