I have forgot to include the patched "get_iplayer.pl"
Which as been patched to solve few problem instructions over here
download the file from here
rename the old one to the name of you choice (I normally add the
date.old at the end "get_iplayer.pl.20110611.old")
and now copy the downloaded file into the folder where get_iplayer is
installed (|C:\Program Files\get_iplayer\get_iplayer.pl) Win 7
just make sure it's got name get_iplayer.pl and that's it.
