Browsers use HDS so probably aren't affected. They are served by both Akamai and Limelight so are probably on the "current" system so the BBC are probably packaging these streams themselves. I think iPads etc now use the HVF streams so again probably are not affected.
Akamai is still a major part of iPlayer. Between it and Limelight they serve all the HDS, HVF (current HLS) and Flash streams.
