Aunty makes some changes to iPlayer

Starting today, 6 June 2013, there are reports and get_iplayer users that are looking for a fix for a:

"failed to read rtmp packet header" error

I have found a work-around for this and it is documented on my website,

It seems that the BBC are in the habit of changing where the swf hash is located and what SWF hash needs to be used. The swfurl is hard-coded in the script and can also be specified on the command line.
