There is another thread today (now yesterday) about this.

Modes have been renamed in v2.98 and v2.99. The new names are here.
That page begins,
"STOP: You almost certainly do not need the reference information contained
in this document. Most users only need to configure maximum recording
quality, and then only if the defaults are not acceptable. Read the
Recording Quality documentation instead and configure your maximum recording
quality as described there. Only refer to this document if you need to know
specifics for a particular recording mode or shortcut."
Does anyone agree that you don't need the reference information when the
mode names and aliases keep changing?
>Does 2.99 require a Perl package not required by previous versions?
I have not seen anything that says it does. Although I originally used the
Windows installer, to go from v2.97 to 2.98 I just replaced get_iplayer.pl
and get_iplayer.cgi. The DVF modes need ffmpeg v3.0 or greater. Problems
could be caused by the absence of metadata feeds.
