Seems a problem with some links at least:
file not found/offline error:

Have just discovered today that the BBC seem to have done an 'update', and links that I downloaded only yesterday no longer work, giving an 'Offline Files' message in JD. That's strange because I have another program that currently still works on BBC links. However, my first choice will always be JD as it downloads in MP4.

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.

I use FreeRapid Downloader, then convert from flv to mp4 in another program.
ITV.com is another source that JD used to work with, but unfortunately not any more. In FreeRapid Downloader's plugin list, ITV is shown as 'working' but it doesn't. For ITV, Channel 4, and Channel 5 etc, I rely on various other download sources.

I've used FRD as a workaround but not often nowadays. Used to work with CH4 but I couldn't find anything to work with their streaming site now. nor with ITV. if you know of something that does. because JD doesn't, maybe let us know.

Never used it. Just took a look. I dunno. Not sure if I can get my head round all the correct command line options etc.

JDownloader doesn't convert at all. It only does muxing.
