Not sure it has been mentioned on here (if it has I missed it, sorry), but a new version of get_iplayer came out in February.

Changes in 3.27
Removed deprecated --tag-utf8 option
For a programme downloaded multiple times, history search now returns the most recent entry with an extant media file instead of the oldest entry.
	Programme info pages and help page now open in new window/tab
	Play* links now open in new window/tab
	Play* links are no longer displayed for deleted files
	Play Direct links should now work in Firefox, Chrome, Edge (but not Safari) With Remote Streaming type = Auto
	Play Direct links are now only displayed where MP4/M4A files (or MP3 files from obsolete versions of get_iplayer) are available
	Removed Quicktime, AVI streaming formats
	Added MPEG-TS, Matroska, AAC, Vorbis streaming formats
Windows: Fixed incorrect documentation link in installer finish screen
macOS: get_iplayer should work on Apple Silicon systems via Rosetta 2, but this has not been verified. The developers do not have access to an Apple Silicon system.
get_iplayer 3.27 or higher is required with Mojolicious 9.0+. Earlier releases of Mojolicious will continue to work with get_iplayer 3.27 or higher.

Hope that is helpful to someone 😊
