R.I.P – BBC iPlayer Download Manager

I’ve seen the have replaced Download Manager with which uses and technologies which will make use of Flash Media Rights Management Server (FMRMS) to DRM-protect content which is downloaded to the user’s desktop. I wonder if they’ve changed this because they were fed-up of people stripping out the DRM with tools. I suppose Mac and users will now be happy, that BBC iPlayer content is available to them, and folks that never liked the peer-to-peer software can be removed – I think and Channel 4 service still need this technology.

The BBC still allow you to download Windows Media Player content at present, with DRM! (direct download from website only – not peer to peer)
