If you're using a VPN, it could be the problem. The bottom line is that
when you see:
ERROR: RTMP_Connect0, failed to connect socket. 10060 (Unknown error)
it means that Windows can't establish a network connection to the
requested resource. Thus, the problem is almost certainly somewhere in
your setup outside rtmpdump or get_iplayer. It may one of the things
Nigel mentioned, or it may be a network problem upstream, or any number
of other things. There is no point in re-isntalling get_iplayer.
You can test your port 1935 connectivity outside get_iplayer here:
If those test apps can't connect on port 1935, then take a look at your
firewall. If it's on, turn it off temporarily to at least establish
whether or not it's the problem.
