Convert iPlayer Programme ID (PID)

Converting an iPlayer Version Programme ID (VPID) to stream information is easy! Just enter the VPID in the box below and click the 'Convert' button.

Important! As of April 2017 you must use a Version PID and not a regular PID. All iplayerconverter links have been updated to pass VPIDs to this page.
