You should be able to just change the version number and update the md5 sum as a temporary fix. If not, I have them already changed in my version of the package, so you can use that as a reference.

I list slightly different dependancies IIRC. In addition to that, I have included several modified files from Debian to create a menu icon which will run a script file to launch the WebPVR. If anyone runs my package for Maemo5 on their N900, it's pretty much the same.

Unfortunately I haven't uploaded the icons I use as I don't think i can :) If you want to use it you will have to supply the missing 32,48 and 64 pixel png icons.

It seems to be new version ftp://ftp.infradead.org/pub/get_iplayer/get_iplayer-2.83.tar.gz. Please update.

2.82-2 includes a patch for that issue.

A URL dependency in the get_iplayer code has apparently been changed recently (5 Jun) by the BBC. Details, including the command line workaround, are available here:

Optional dependency stuff is mostly guessed at from looking through the code.

An additional opt depend: "XML::Simple: Series and Brand pid parsing"

I have an updated version of this PKGBUILD, with a working .desktop file for the web PVR manager. Similar to Debian's get_iplayer_web_pvr, but it adds another script file to automatically open the users preferred browser at the managers address.

Let me know if anyone if you want it uploaded. Only issue is the icon, I'm using one from the iPlayer site.

Please add "atomicparsley", "id3v2" and "mplayer" as opt depend to this and the get_iplayer-git package.

perl-net-http is also needed.
