Hi all -
Just heard from the developer that he is fairly sure he can fix this iPlayer 
issue with Replay Media Catcher.  So stay tuned.

I too have recently experienced problems when downloading BBC radio programmes 
using Replay Media Catcher.
Sometimes the download completes and then the file disappears from my 
recordings folder.
Other times a file remains in my recordings but it does not have a file type
and so I can do nothing with it.

I have also tried downloading BBC radio programs using Replay av 8 with the URL 
finder facility, alas, with no success.

Any advice/insights would be appreciated.

I guess the subject says it all.  Recently, the BBC changed their Listen Again 
format to MP3 and that worked beautifully with MC.  However, they've just 
changed the format to AAC encoding and this no longer works.

Well, it does start to download, but it stops mid way through a download.  For 
instance, I tried to download one show and MC said that it was 80.70 MB, but 
there was nothing in the My Recordings folder.  I tried again with the same 
show and got a different file size, but still nothing in the My Recordings 

Are there any plans to include AAC in the Media Catcher formats.
