Run with --verbose and see if the output includes:
ERROR: Problem accessing the DNS. (addr: bbcodspdns.fcod.llnwd.net)
DEBUG: Closing connection.
At least from my location, it would seem to be a DNS problem and
rtmpdump thus can't locate the CDN servers. iPlayer site is broken as
well (tested against a few Radio 4 programmes), probably for the same
reason. TV programmes seem OK. I would guess this is a temporary
situation. I noticed last night that mms streams disappeared, so maybe
some server shuffling is going on.
BTW: no need for --get with --pid
