Dec 20 2009

I’ve just released a fixed get_iplayer v2.50 so that you can now get the iphone streams once again. This is because the BBC appear to have changed (simplified) the method for iphone http streaming as of a few days ago. The freeze still stands so hopefully this will be the only critical fix before next year.

      Had to use –mode=iphone1 to get this patch to work, –mode=iphone failed

      or is it just me?

      I just downloaded the latest version of get_iplayer and installed it on a couple of windows computers.

      I am now receiving a message in each install:
      ERROR: Duplicate Option Defined ‘itvnothread’ -> ‘mmsnothread’ and ‘itvnothread’

      I am not going to try to fix the code without some help here.
