This stems from about January when I made flvstreamer an 'or' 
along with rtmpdump, though the package manager will be satisfied if
rtmpdump is already installed or you try to install it at the same
time as get-iplayer. If neither of these is true though it will choose
flvstreamer by default, which I assume is what's happened to you.

To be honest I'm not sure what to do about this and I'd welcome
input from testers about how well flvstreamer/rtmpdump work so I can
make the right choice for Wheezy. Bear in mind that tests must be
of the versions in Wheezy and not third-party packages though, and that
we freeze in the next few days.
