If you have installed (or reinstalled) get-iplayer and it not longer works, but throw something like this:
Connecting ...The solution is to run this command:
ERROR: RTMP_ReadPacket, failed to read RTMP packet header
INFO: Command exit code 1 (raw code = 256)
WARNING: Failed to stream file [some program file].partial.mp4.flv via RTMP
