    The browser doesn't really matter: it's all about Adobe Flash performance. The latest beta goes some way towards helping...

    Use iPlayer Downloader.

    It has a built-in browser and downloads the h.264 version of a programme.

    Curse you UK residents and you iPlayer! luckily I can still listen to Radio 1 on the weekend, but I'd love to be able to watch all the programs too. I never resort to torrenting the shows though. ;)

    I've not had any problems with Safari and iPlayer. These days I do use ClickToFlash though.

    Is the license fee really that much? Wow, I guess that's how Top Gear can afford to be so ridiculous every episode.

    Are you running version 3.7 of iPlayer Downloader? According to the release notes it contains a fix for downloading of age restricted content. I used it earlier this week to download "Coming of Age" and that's got to be a 15 at least.

    I can't say i've ever run across the problem but i only tend to use iPlayer Downloader if i need something *right now* and it hasn't yet made its way onto Usenet; them pirates do good work. :D
