I can't necessarily help with this specific problem, but recently I was
trying to download a video on this page ....
... of Olivia Chaney singing Roman Holiday, but initially was unable to
do so. Eventually I copied all the page's HTML source into a
programmer's text editor (the wonderful TextPad), and used regular
expression find and replace to remove everything except the BBC links in
the page source, which left me with them in a list with no duplicates;
then it was simply a question of trying each one until I found one that
GiP or YTD would download, which eventually I did.
FTR, in case it may be helpful in spotting a pattern, it was ...
perl C:\Programs\GetIPlayer\get_iplayer.pl --pid p06ks6fd
... that worked.
Undeniably a tedious chore, but successful in the end.
