The BBC have a well documented platform neutrality policy which they seem to be reluctant to keep themselves to and after repeated digs at open source, I thought we'd show them what open source can do.
So get hacking and hold the BBC accountable, because not all licence payers use windows!

Hi James, I just saw the plans and wanted to leave you a thank you message for picking up this project.
The browser based flash player on Linux isn't all that great with fast moving action sometimes so get_iplayer was great for me. Watching the mp4 files in mplayer works so much better and I really glad you have picked up the project.
