This does not work. I have spent two days testing it and it FAILS FAILS FAILS. The BBC videos will not play in iTunes. Complete waste of time having a program (wondershare) that relies on what must be the worst program on the net (iTunes). If you are such clever programmers make your own player rather than use somebody elses.
