ok that works had seen it earlier here but not tried it
it is the latest and works
on Ubuntu I had to do this
copy new code text and paste here instead of old one
I did not bother replacing get_iplayer as i never use it written that way but do same if you wish to addCode:sudo gedit /usr/bin/get-iplayer
when Jon Hedgerows next updates PPA it will pick up where we have left it now
Until then it is a fix will mark as solved... again thanx hutchinsfairy and all of you guys

I pulled the change line from the bottom of the thread proseak linked to, edited it into get_iplayer.pl and it seems to work fine on windoze (am I allowed to mention that word here?).
Then I noticed that shantiq had already done all the hard work. Ho hum.
Thanks guys, I was getting very frustrated about this.
Has also happend to me, since about the 5 Jun 13. I am using a Ubuntu 12.10 on a HTPC server.
Caught signal: 13, cleaning up, just a second...
ERROR: WriteN, RTMP send error 32 (42 bytes)

Using version 2.82 of get_iplayer I am using.
No need to edit the get_iplayer script to fix BBC downloads. You can temporarily update your preferences until a new get_iplayer release arrives. See:
So for those in any doubt, just open a terminal & copy & paste the following command:
Get-iplayer should now work correctly.Code:get_iplayer --prefs-add --rtmp-tv-opts="--swfVfy=http://www.bbc.co.uk/emp/releases/iplayer/revisions/617463_618125_4/617463_618125_4_emp.swf"
Many many thanks for this fix
The best things in life are free, so what are we paying for?
Shantiq's workaround worked for me! Many thanks - -what does this command do?
hi broomie it corrects the new settings from the Beeb but you cannot use the change of get-iplayer code page in /usr/bin for the new one and run
the commandCode:get_iplayer --prefs-add --rtmp-tv-opts="--swfVfy=http://www.bbc.co.uk/emp/releases/iplayer/revisions/617463_618125_4/617463_618125_4_emp.swf"
that puts you back to where you were ... i tried it :::]]]
then had to go to sudo gedit /home/username/.get_iplayer/options and remove the line
So to summarize either replace get-iplayer code page in /usr/bin for the new one or use the command
Dinkypumpkin is the one who knows how it is rigged up so i placed the command as solution on first post [but the other route works equally well] .... is what i understand i am personally happy with the /usr/bin swap
Anyway most of us are with Hedgerows PPA as i understand it; no doubt will soon be updated ; in the meantime VERY grateful to Dinky here
shantiq: You're right - it's redundant to both edit /usr/bin/get_iplayer and add the SWF player URL as a preference. FWIW, I recommend setting the preference rather than editing the script. It's less error-prone, no permission issues, easier to undo. BTW, you don't need to edit $HOME/.get_iplayer/options to remove the preference. Just run the same command again with --prefs-del instead of --prefs-add:
Code:get_iplayer --prefs-del --rtmp-tv-opts="--swfVfy=http://www.bbc.co.uk/emp/releases/iplayer/revisions/617463_618125_4/617463_618125_4_emp.swf"
