flvstreamer does not (and never will) support SWF verification.  Remove 
it from your system - it won't be of much use to you with get_iplayer.

You'll have to provide more detail about how you installed it, because 
something has obviously gone wrong.  Once you have a working build of 
rtmpdump, put --flvstreamer=/path/to/rtmpdump in your command line.  If 
rtmpdump is in $PATH, you shouldn't even need to specify it in the 
command line.
