You're free to install get-iplayer any way that works for you.

I maintain a ppa (and a raspbian repository) because I find it much
easier to install packages the normal way, and apt-get installs the
dependencies for me as well.  And these versions provide some
configuration tweaks to take advantage of the features in the updated
and working versions of things like atomicparsley and rtmpdump, which
are also in the ppa.  Writing some /full/ installation instructions
for a git install as suggested would be considerably more complex than
installation from a ppa...
