@diabonas: Thanks. Removed optdepends atomicparsley-largefile-hg.

If your version of AtomicParsley is <0.9.4, it is recommended that you install a modern version if possible.

atomicparsley is now at version 0.9.6.

The official atomicparsley package in [community] has been updated to version 0.9.6 and now works for large media files out of the box. As both atomicparsley and atomicparsley-largefile-hg now build exactly the same version, the latter could be removed as an optional dependency.

Your BBC :/

No additional modules & everything is up to date. Basically reinstalling perl-xml-sax fixed the problem, but I don't know why. Thanks for the help. perl-xml-libxml is not needed in depends.

@test0: get_iplayer itself does not depend on perl-xml-libxml: there is no "use XML::LibXML::SAX" in get_iplayer. Another Perl program/module depends on it. Can you see which one? Are all packages, including VCS (git, ...) packages up-to-date? Or do you have Perl modules installed, which were installed outside the Arch Linux package manager? Instead of installing perl-xml-libxml, try installing atomicparsley-largefile-hg (or atomicparsley).

@willemw: That did the trick, thanks. Perhaps it should be added to depends.

@test0: Try it with perl-xml-libxml installed.

Is this still working for anyone? I'm getting this error message (edited to be more verbose): WARNING: Could not parse programme metadata from (Can't locate XML/LibXML/ in @INC (you may need to install the XML::LibXML::SAX module) (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/share/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/core_perl /usr/share/perl5/core_perl .) at (eval 43) line 1. ) perl-xml-sax is installed as a dependency of perl-xml-simple

It seems get_iplayer is not working fully from today. It gives only one result in the feeds. PID download still works, but it makes it way less useable. More info: Cheers,
