Some TV downloads left on raw(?) format
First post, and I am definitely a novice with get_iplayer...

Most of the downloads I request are successful and result in a single file with a .ts suffix.
Some, however, are apparently completed OK, but the result is two files with suffixes of .m4a and .m4v. (is this 'raw' format?)

As far as I can tell, there's a tool called ffmpeg that could be used to merge the files into a usable video file, but nearly everything I've read assumes a *nix environment (and requisite knowledge of that), whereas I'm working with Win10.

On occasion, I found that if I try to download the same programme with --force at a later date then everything works as usual.

Is there any way to get iplayer to automatically perform the required 'merging' of the m4a and m4v files?
