Interestingly enough there's a posting today on the support forum which
wonders whether hlshd is being phased out as the "BBC isn't making
programs available in hlshd (720p 25fps), only dvfhd and hvfhd (720p
50fps) for HD. The list includes:
Latest episodes of The Film Review, Click, BBC News at Six, BBC Weekend
News and Episodes 7 and 8 of Below the Surface (Episodes 1-6 of Below
the Surfaces are available in hlshd)."
To take Ordeal by Innocence as an example, both episodes 1 and 2 now
have editorial versions. Episode 1 has hlshd1 and flashhd1 modes.
Episode 2 has neither.
If anyone wants to check the availability of Flash, you need to go back
to get_iplayer v2.99, re-install rtmpdump and use --pid or --url.
