[INVALID] "Cannot instantiate streamer" error when retrying failed download
#1
I was using get_iplayer successfully up to yesterday (5th Feb 2018) using the latest 3.12. release and Windows 10, but today get this error:

INFO: Downloading tv: 'McMafia: Series 1 - 7. Episode 7 (b09rdvy3) [editorial]'
INFO: Downloaded: 242.22 MB (00:12:00) @ 1.22 Mb/s (hlshd1) [audio+video]

ERROR: Cannot instantiate streamer for class=Streamer:: version=editorial mode=hlshd1

The streamer message was also coming up in the previous version i was using (only downloaded 3.12 this morning).

Any ideas?

First example was using the pid identifyer, this also happens using the url method, except that it at least keeps trying!....
