My initial reaction was that it was too early to worry about this.  When 
we had problems with Segment not found errors in HLS, that was at a 
holiday time and many programmes were corrected within a week of 
broadcast.  Worryingly the number of programmes with no HLS modes is 
increasing.  Even more ominous is that Flash modes also seem to be being 

To take Ordeal by Innocence as an example, both episodes 1 and 2 now 
have editorial versions.  Episode 1 has hlshd1 and flashhd1 modes. 
Episode 2 has neither.

If anyone wants to check the availability of Flash, you need to go back 
to get_iplayer v2.99, re-install rtmpdump and use --pid or --url.

Best wishes
