I use the Get_Iplayer program as a workaround, it auto converts downloads to mp4, though the interface is a bit clunky compared to the simple url copy and paste of JD, which I also prefer to use. GetIplayer is currently working Ok and the JD techs might want to try to reverse engineer GetIplayer if it works on BBC links, when JD stops working, if that helps but I realise they might use very different processes of course.
