The new version of the iPlayer site went live late last week, and is significantly different from the old version. As a side effect, downloads were broken. However, with the aid of a session trace sent to me by a kind reader, I’ve made the necessary amendments.
- The method to find the version PID has changed.
- The page served to mobile clients has a different address.
There are still a few questions left (I’m almost certainly not finding the version PID in the best way), but it does work. With a little further effort, it should be possible to grab the radio files as well, which would be a nice bonus.
You can get the updated files in the usual place.
