BBC Sounds | BBC Radio iPlayer
« on: 08:10:52 | 25 October, 2020 »
I note that BBC Sounds is now being propagated outside the UK. It seems nowhere near as good or as easy to use as the iPlayer.

What's wrong BBC?

I find it much better than it used to be though.
ALso - for LMS users ... there is a good new plugin that integrates well with the web service of BBC Sounds.
Reciva-based Logik IR100 and Tangent Quattro MKII plus lots of Logitech (ex-Slimdevices) Squeezebox and 2 old Turtlebeach Audiotron, handful of O2 Jogglers and some Raspberry Pis

Couldn't find it on the LMS Settings, Plugins page.  A bit of searching got me to https://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?113045-Announce-BBC-Sounds-Plugin

Well, now the iPlayer Radio app is saying it will be closing shortly...

However, I have noticed BBCSounds now plays music channels when iPlayer used to cite rights issues.
