get_iplayer: Update to 3.20

Changes in 3.20

    Fixed a bug in v3.19 that caused a "Can't use an undefined value as an ARRAY reference" error when using --pid-recursive or --pid-recursive-list with programmes that have no available episodes

    Fixed a bug in v3.19 that prevented Windows users from viewing and editing PVR searches in the Web PVR Manager.

    EDIT: If you find that BBC Scotland programmes of interest are missing from search results, force all available BBC Scotland programmes to be indexed and cached with (ignore any 404 errors):

      get_iplayer --refresh --refresh-include="BBC Scotland" --refresh-limit=30

v3.20 was released soon after v3.19, which was withdrawn. See the get_iplayer 3.19 release notes for other recent changes.

Changes in 3.19

    Fixed a bug that caused one-off PVR searches created with --pvr-queue to be deleted when run with --test (thanks @wiehe).

    Replaced BBC Two Scotland with BBC Scotland in programme indexing. If a cache update extends back before the week of 2019-02-18, it will produce errors because a BBC Scotland schedule does not 
exist for earlier dates. The error can be ignored. EDIT: If you find that BBC Scotland programmes of interest are missing from search results, force all available BBC Scotland programmes to be 
indexed and cached with (ignore any 404 errors):

      get_iplayer --refresh --refresh-include="BBC Scotland" --refresh-limit=30

    Adapted --pid-recursive and --pid-recursive-list functionality for the change in layout of programme episode lists on the iPlayer site. The switch to series-by-series listings for many programmes 
meant that get_iplayer would only display episodes from the earliest series listed. This almost exclusively affected CBBC and CBeebies programmes, but could affect any programme.

    The episode ordering with --pid-recursive and --pid-recursive-list is now always oldest to newest (as determined by the order of the listings on the iPlayer site). This ensures a consistent order 
regardless of the source of the episode lists, and it is generally consistent with how search results are ordered by default. Use --sort-reverse to list episodes from newest to oldest.

    Added <senumx> substitution parameter to format series and episode numbers as ##x## instead of s##e## as with <senum>. As with <senum>, <senumx> may be absent.

    Added --expires-after option for use with --expires-before to bracket searches based on programme expiration date.

    Added --pid-index option. The programme index cache is no longer used by default with --pid, whether in a PVR search or from the command line. For an indexed programme, the cache entry provides a 
backup source of basic metadata, but it is not required. If you notice incomplete metadata or output file names with missing components, use --pid-index to ensure the cache is updated and used with 
--pid. This would only be of help with indexed programmes from the past 30 days.

    Added --no-merge-versions option. get_iplayer now attempts to merge media streams from programme versions with the same name and duration (e.g., editorial and editorial2). There are some 
extremely rare cases where you may not want to do so because broken streams may be included in the result due to problems with BBC metadata. In that case, use --no-merge-versions to prevent merging 
and pick out the specific version you want with --versions.

    Performed final removal of --hls-hq-audio, --no-dash-remux and --stream-http options

Changes in 3.18

    Fixed a bug that caused unnecessary cache updates when --refresh-future was used.

    Fixed a bug that prevented a stale cache from being updated with --pvr when first PVR search was PID-based. EDIT: This change will refresh both TV and radio programme index caches when PID-based 
PVR searches are used, even if --type=radio is not defined in preferences or the PVR searches. This is to ensure availability of at least minimal metadata for indexed programmes found with PID-based 
PVR searches. If you want to avoid ever indexing any radio programmes, delete the radio.cache file in your profile directory and use --refresh-exclude-groups-radio=local,regional,national to exclude 
all radio stations from indexing. You will have a radio.cache file, but it will contain no entries.

    Added --hls-lq-audio option to download lower-quality audio with HLS video streams. Use this if 320k audio is too rich for your diet. You will get the same audio as DASH streams (128k or 96k, 
depending on the stream).

    Added --available-before option for use with --available-since to bracket searches based on programme availability date.

    The --no-subtitles option on the command line will now override all --subs-{embed,mono,raw,required} options saved in preferences. Those options no longer imply --subtitles (Web PVR: "Download 
subtitles" in "Recording" tab), which is now required with any of them.

    get_iplayer no longer looks for a local options file under the current working directory (in ./.get_iplayer/options). That could cause problems when using --profile-dir while working in user's 
home directory if a default profile directory had been created. Use a preset instead. EDIT: This functionality was never documented and thus you are extremely unlikely to be affected by its removal.

    The --test option will only show lists of matching episodes with PVR searches and --pid-recursive. Download and parsing of media stream data will only occur with --test if --get or standalone 
--pid is specified.

    Changes to substitution parameters:

        Added <sebcast>, <sebcastdate>, <sebcasttime>, <sesort>. See definitions in Substitution Parameters. These parameters provide additional options for constructing sortable file names with 

        A value for <episodenum> must now be found in programme metadata in order for <senum> to be populated. A value of "1" is no longer synthesised for some TV programmes. A value of "1" is still 
synthesised for <seriesnum> if <episodenum> is populated and no series number is found in programme metadata.

        The episode number prepended to <episode> is now zero-padded to 2 digits. This is reflected in the default output file prefix. EDIT: If you use the default file prefix and you mistakenly use 
--force for a programme you do not wish to re-download, or you mistakenly attempt to re-download a programme you already have that has been removed from your download history, it is likely that you 
will end up with a duplicate because the zero-padding generates a different file name (assuming an episode number is present). To revert to the previous default file prefix without zero-padding, use:

          get_iplayer --prefs-add --file-prefix="<name> - <episodenum. ><episodeshort> <pid> <version>"

        If you use a custom file prefix that contains <episode>, replace it with <episodenum. ><episodeshort> to achieve the same effect.

        Conditional separators can now be used as suffixes. See example in Filenames and Directories.

    The functionality of the options below has been removed. The options are now ignored and will be completely removed in the next release. A warning message will be printed if any of these options 
is found in your preferences.
        --hls-hq-audio: Now essentially useless and could lead to audio sync problems.
        --no-dash-remux: If you prefer DASH media streams for some reason you can no longer produce potentially unusable output files, at the cost of some extra time in post-processing downloads.
        --stream-http: get_iplayer will now automatically look for HTTP media playlist URLs if no HTTPS URLs are found.

    You can remove these obsolete options from your preferences (whether or not they are actually defined) with:

      get_iplayer --prefs-del --hls-hq-audio --no-dash-remux --stream-http

    A get_iplayer profile directory (containing programme index caches, pvr searches, preset definitions, download history) can now be shared between Windows and Linux/BSD/macOS. get_iplayer on all 
platforms now processes any CRLF line endings (default for text files on Windows) when reading files from the profile directory. Files will still be written with native line endings (CRLF on Windows, 
LF on other platforms), so different files may have different line endings if you share them between platforms. This also means that the "download_history" file will have mixed line endings if 
written on different platforms. The different line endings shouldn't affect get_iplayer, but be aware of them if editing those files directly.
        If you only use get_iplayer on Windows, or only on Linux/BSD/macOS, you should notice no difference.
        Warning for Linux/BSD/macOS users: This only works with get_iplayer 3.18 or higher. Once you have CRLF line endings in your files, you cannot use get_iplayer versions before 3.18 unless you 
first change all line endings in all files to LF and then never again write to those files in Windows.
