Maybe I'm missing something, but I find that incredible.  The Mac is sold as 
a machine which allows creative people to create without having to bother 
with technicalities.  If I search for Linux traffic management or Windows 
traffic management I can see that there are programs which do that sort of 
thing, but they are only needed if I want to do clever things like running a 
heavily loaded server where the load has to be balanced between processes. 
I have 5 programs open on my task bar and 58 processes.  Windows allocates 
resources between them as they demand them without my even having to think 
about it, and has been doing a reasonable job of it since Windows 95.  Maybe 
you and David are doing clever things with your machines, but then I don't 
understand why you would run get_iplayer on the same machine.

My inclination would be to buy a Raspberry Pi and run get_iplayer on that.
