Hmm - thanks for that info. I bet its a Chink app.
Anyway as I said get_iplayer is a great app. And I only really use HiDownload Platinum + sniffer for getting the raw URL for downloading files via Orbit. StreamTransport is not being updated anymore.
As an after thought wouldn't it be great if get_iplayer also worked for ITV iplayer, Ondemand 4 and 5 or whatever?
Is this in the pipeline?
