Re: Problems with BBC Radio 4 via Internet Radio?

It seems that the AAC streams have now been disabled, too; so, like many on here, I had to change my WMA settings to BBC mp3 streams.

http://www.radiofeeds.co.uk/mp3.asp have all updated links to BBC Radio on mp3. - Currently, I've still got all BBC Local Radio on WMA, but I guess it's only a matter of time until these are switched off as well, except on mp3.

Hope this helps! (Can't live without BBC Radio on the puter, me!!)

Re: Problems with BBC Radio 4 via Internet Radio?

My BBC Radio 4 has gone off the air as of yesterday on my Internet Radio (Squeezebox). Apparently BBC does not support Windows Media Player any more. Any tips on what I should do now to get the radio to work?

Re: Problems with BBC Radio 4 via Internet Radio?

I have just read all the posts. It looks like I have only 2 choices: listen to R4 on my phone with the Tune In App or get a new Logitech radio.
Would anyone agree with this summary?

Not quite I have Medion and Tetris brand internet radios from Aldi and/or Lidl (can't tell which is which) they both get Radio 4 with 99% reliability. And they use different servers...

Another option is to listen via your telly - if you have Cablecom, it's something like no. 864 - don't know if Swisscom does R4, though.

TuneIn app. will also cast to a telly with a Chromecast, which gives better sound, than a phone or tablet.

Wait until the end of the month when they have finished doing the conversions.

My Marantz amp gave a Windows Media message for BBC 6 Music last weekend, so I searched for the station again and it reappeared working on a new stream.

The slimdevices community have fixed this on Squeezebox.

I don't think you can access the high quality streams abroad (320kbps) so choose the lower quality stream (128kbps).

A further (more conventional) update has appeared, in the last couple of hours. If you update the iPlayer plugin it now works again at the highest bitrate allowed at your location

Re: Problems with BBC Radio 4 via Internet Radio?

We have had real problems getting BBC Internet Radio with our two Macs and iPad here in Basel the last few days - has anyone else had this problem? We've got broadband through Swisscom. From Thurs am to today we could not listen live or download any podcasts. This afternoon I have managed to listen live but with occasional breaks in transmission. We've never had problems before and it's a mystery. Any and all suggestions warmly welcome!

What application/programme are you using to stream radio?

The details previously on this thread, may still be relevant, regarding BBC changing whatever they've been changing.

Try BBC Radio iPlayer on Mac and TuneIn Radio on iPad.

Are you using the dedicated Apple Podcast app.?


Radio 4 works fine on my iPad from the official R4 site, 'Listen Live', through my browser.

Re: Problems with BBC Radio 4 via Internet Radio?

Thanks very much TiMow, yes I have always used BBC iPlayer Radio and I have not previously had to install anything extra to receive it on either a Mac or on the iPad.
And I have found zero information on the BBC website about new changes.

Re: Problems with BBC Radio 4 via Internet Radio?

Just tried it now on my iMac - works fine - can hear the Archers via the Beeb website.

Also Tune-In on the iPad - and via the Beeb. Will check my Squeezebox in a minute.

Cheers,
Nick

Try listening via the 'Listen Live' on R4's dedicated web page on your browser.

TuneIn Radio is free from the App Store for iPad - may be worth considering installing.


ETA: Coincidentally, another Swisscom customer in Basel, is having problems accessing a BBC internet site.

Re: Problems with BBC Radio 4 via Internet Radio?

Many thanks again, TiMow. I use both Listen Live and iPlayer for previous broadcasts, and have never had problems with either.
Since yesterday afternoon I've been able to get live broadcasts but with erratic breaks in transmission.
If another Swisscom customer is having problems with BBC internet services, then perhaps it's got something to do with their broadband speed.
Will definitely try TuneIn Radio for the iPad, many thanks for the tip.
Cheers

According to Roger Daltrey and his mates, it's something that Mama has, that stops daddy from getting a good nights sleep.
