If you can’t download programmes at the moment, please don’t tell me! It’s also affecting iPhone and iPod Touch users, so it doesn’t seem to be a Beeb counter-attack.
It appears that something went awry over at the transcoding barn where the programmes get converted into iPlayer versions. There’s a thread about it on the iPlayer message board.
It sounds like everything is back up and working again now. If you can’t download any new programmes, I’m interested in hearing about it.
