Recording itv & ch4 programs


Q 1/ Is there a program (like Get_iplayer) that will do the same as for ch4 & itv. So I can record CH4 & ITV.

My download speeds are to low for streaming most of the time.

Q 2/ How can I stream through vlc or other players.

Q /3 Is it possible to skip through 'Add's' with any of the above programs?

Please show me a walk through.

Thanks

Richard

My modified host file blocks most ads when I watch videos on sites like Hulu. I haven't tried it on ITV or CH-4. Try configuring your host file to block ad servers. Check here for instructions. You can probably d/l the stream using flashget or a similar utility. Maybe you can get someone to write a script that'll d/l, convert it to xvid and store it on a server....I'd like to know how to as well.

Using AdBlock+ in Firefox I can watch ITV programmes without adverts. For Channel 4 recently I have to wait until they're on YouTube to watch them in Firefox for some reason as 4OD doesn't seem to work -- I'm not sure whether it's AdBlock, NoScript, Ghostery or something else causing it though. At one point I could watch 4OD without adverts too because of AdBlock+.

Channel 4 programs often appear on YouTube a few days after 4OD -- just search for them and you'll see loads (I like 8 out of 10 cats, for example). If you watch them on YouTube with AdBlock+ you don't see any adverts either.
For ITV stuff there are mainly "unofficial" versions on YouTube so you can't guarantee whether they'll be on there or not.
