View Full Version : BBC Radio recording no longer works - they removed WMP and switched to HLS

On the 15th Feb, the BBC changed its policy and removed WMP (and MP3) as an output. So the published stream source of:


...No longer works. It just records a voice saying that Windows Media Player output is no longer supported.

It appears that the BBC has moved over to HLS AAC streams

So how do we use AV to capture BBC Radio now?

Please take a look at the BBC media blog...



radiofeeds.co.uk/other.asp - which shows a source of working feeds, but that do not work with AV.

Our replacement program for Replay AV, Replay Radio, works great with the new format that BBC changed to. Please go to our order page and select to upgrade. Follow the prompts for the great deals we do
have available for you. We stopped updating and selling Replay AV over three years ago due to changes in technology. This is an example of such.
