Linux fanboy hacks Beeb iPlayer again
Just hours after the BBC said it had fixed the iPlayer streamed TV service to prevent DRM-free file downloads, a London-based programmer has bypassed the new protection.
Paul Battley, a developer for crowd-sourced reviews site Reevoo, wrote on his blog on Thursday that he had "defeated" the fixed iPlayer code.
"BBC News proudly announced the BBC's victory over those of us who had figured out how to download their iPhone iPlayer streams," wrote Battley. "I am happy to announce that I've defeated them once again!"
"I did it mostly for entertainment and for the challenge of doing it," said Battley.
