Hello; The new patch appears to be working just fine. I fired up get-iplayer-automater under snow leopard on my one mac-mini. i replaced the get_iplayer with the new patched version. i see no reason why it will not work, but going to test more just to make sure.
get_iplayer-patch-ms5 is running excellent under Debian Linux Wheezy.
