The SWF Verification warning appears because rtmpdump doesn't execute 
properly due to keyring (get_iplayer tries to parse output from 
"rtmpdump --help") - nothing to do with any 2.4 changes.  Not that it 
would necessarily make any difference, but is there some particular 
reason you build your own ffmpeg and rtmpdump?  The packaged versions 
work fine.  Also, the packaged version of rtmpdump doesn't seem to croak 
if the keyring dir is missing, which is what I would expect.

Perhaps MATE puts the keyring-XXXXXX dir under /tmp.  Check the value of 
$MATE_KEYRING_CONTROL in MATE. As for Gnome, does the name of the 
~/.cache/keyring-XXXXXX dir match the value of $GNOME_KEYRING_CONTROL? 
The "No such file or directory" error suggests it doesn't.

This is what happens every time your rtmpdump is executed by 
get_iplayer, giving rise to the SWF Verification errors.
