Ripping BBC iplayer

For some reason, I wanted to capture a BBC iplayer stream onto my hard disk; it looks like I was planning to use my MAC, and so didn’t because I would have needed to upgrade the MAC OS version to 10.6 or better. Please note I am a BBC license fee payer, although of course the MAC is a laptop.
I found these two URLs

Get iplayer Automator

This is for MACs, it uses a separate project to interface with the BBC site and is basically a GUI. It saves to disk and presents it through iTunes.

Get Iplayer (CLI)

I downloaded it using macports, and had a problem with the format conversions. This took me to rmtpdump.

I installed this using macports. I still haven’t made the –mode flag work which is why I installed the MAC optimised package.
