'mv' is a GNU/Linux / UNIX command - it won't work on windoze. If you
want to run get_iplayer on windoze, then you need to follow the
installation instructions for windoze. You appear to be trying to use a
Linux version on your windoze machine. The installation instructions for
your platform are at:-

or for manual installation:-

'mv' is the command to move and/or rename a file on GNU/Linux and UNIX
systems. As it is different on your platform, the get_iplayer script is
unable to move/rename the file, which is why it complains of such and
you've got a file left over instead of the one you were expecting. I
expect you could probably just rename it to something more appropriate
and play it without any problem.
