Didn't have any of those, so just rebuilt the -git.
Cracking job, thanks for sorting that so quickly.

Looks like I was a bit too eager to cut down the dependencies that namcap said the package didn't need.

Check you have the following installed: perl-libwww perl-html-parser perl-www-mechanize or just rebuild (I've updated the PKGBUILD but not bumped release num)

Further to my last, just tried the git version with the same result.

Seems to be broken again:

Can't locate HTML/ in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl
/usr/share/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl
/usr/lib/perl5/core_perl /usr/share/perl5/core_perl .) at /usr/bin/get_iplayer line 59.

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/get_iplayer line 59.

Is this related to psychedelicious' post below?

I've changed this package to the _official_ release. GIT version is now separate package get_iplayer-git

This needs updating, the BBC flash player url has changed

Thanks for the explanation canton7.

With *-git packages, makepkg automatically ups the pkgver in the PKGBUILD you downloaded to match the current date, which is why you see 20110320 (today's date) as the installed version.
Following your logic, the pkgver in the AUR's PKGBUILD would have to be increased daily, which is obviously impractical.
In fact, the latest git revision will be installed whatever the pkgver, which implies that the pkgver only needs to be incrased when something major happens upstream.

This installs 20110320 not 20110202. The pkgver requires an update.

Updated with canton7's PKGBUILD.
