Been seeing the exact same thing since this morning using get_iplayer
v2.78 with rtmpdump v2.3 on Windows 7. Not only can't I download anything
new, I can't download another copy of a program I successfully downloaded
two days ago.

It looks like the Beeb may have changed something and it will be up to the
authors of get_iplayer and/or rtmpdump to figure out what that something is :(
