R.I.P – BBC iPlayer Download Manager

I’ve seen the have replaced iPlayer Download Manager with iPlayer Desktop 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 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)
