I had issues but solved them by using the current version of RTMPDump,
I think version 2.2 is included with get_iplayer (i'm using the
windows installation) but the current version is 2.4 ?  renamed the
old rtmpdump folder, extracted out the new version to a folder the
same name as the old version, works fine.

good luck!
