upstream url has changed - move to sourceforge

current (2.92) may be installed by changing url in pkg ;)

Just a note to maintainer that Get_iplayer is implementing some changes, this post about RPI describes them
i do hope maintainer can work around these changes and continue to give us this super pkg.

JIC maintainer is unaware [url=]Get_iplayer[/url] is undergoing some changes, which i hope maintainer can implement and continue giving us this superb tool.
P.S i know link refers to ARM (raspberry pi) but it does give some info about changes.

Updated for willemw's suggestions (except the category, as I think multimedia is more appropriate as long as only one category is possible).

willemw commented on 2014-11-08 14:42

Lines 'conflicts=' and 'provides=' should be removed.

(Notes: Category 'network' maybe more appropriate. Added get_iplayer.cgi to the get_iplayer-git package.)

The new version (2.90) works fine. Make these changes to PKGBUILD:

I am using an older pkg my $version = 2.85; and the search issue occurs here too, so i guess it's changes made by the BBC thats causing the 'returning only one search result ' issue.
Agreed it does sadly hamper the functionality somewhat.
