Being told one thing and it actually happening are not the same. When
they disappear then I'll worry about it. Using flash might not be the
ultimate fix to the issue but it got me back up and working.

Hats off to dinky for the work, but please realise get_iplayer is a
hack, a workaround, call it whatever you want, it's not a legitimate
way to "consume" iPlayer content, those apps the BBC produce will have
a lot more error checking and recovery in them than get_iplayer does,
so all this speculation on how things work is just meaningless noise.
