There were plugins for C4 and ITV when Phil first released get_iplayer,
but the targets kept moving and it was not worth keeping up. As
commercial broadcasters it is not in their interests to make life
easy for us, because we would no longer be a captive commercial-
consuming audience and their revenue stream would rightly depreciate.
