Ubuntu Users

Add ppa:jon-hedgerows/get-iplayer to your system's Software Sources
and update in the normal way (with apt-get update/apt-get upgrade).

Versions of ubuntu from Lucid Lynx onwards are supported.

This ppa is described as "bleeding edge", though it's actually pretty
stable, and includes:
  get_iplayer: updated to just beyond 2.80 (it's the tip of
dinkypumpkin's repository as of last night)
  rtmpdump: 2.4
  ffmpeg: a custom static build with enough fixes in to enable
get_iplayer to work (this coexists with the stock ffmpeg installation)
  AtomicParlsey: 0.9.4 plus a few extra fixes - this version supports
some extra tags that get_iplayer can now use

the options file that's installed with this build of get_iplayer
configures it to use the extras above.
