The FTP (and the rest of appears to be down again. Is there a particular reason we can't use the archive stored on Github for this package?

twiddle the version to 2.94
makepkg -g >>PKGBUILD
pacman -U

All good, works fine again. Thanks dinkypumpkin and pippin

Thanks. As an alternative to the FTP archive, you could also use the GitHub releases, e.g., (the occasional DDoS outage notwithstanding).

Done. I guess the original FTP server just went down for a few days.

satanselbow was wrong - the upstream location did not change. Please don't point your package to my tarball for Homebrew - revert to the original location. Thanks.

upstream url has changed - move to sourceforge

current (2.92) may be installed by changing url in pkg ;)

Just a note to maintainer that Get_iplayer is implementing some changes, this post about RPI describes them
i do hope maintainer can work around these changes and continue to give us this super pkg.
