RE: BBC R3 Lossless Stream
To play the DASH streams, you need the experimental MinimStreamer 0.7.1 build. See instructions in post 12.

RE: BBC R3 Lossless Stream
Hi Simon, thanks for prompt response. I have now added minimstreamer-0.7.1, completed relaunch and also restart.

All BBC Radio on the list up to and including AN continue to stream.

WS and R3DASH - regrettably still not streaming.

Thanks for your help, Nick

RE: BBC R3 Lossless Stream
What renderer do you have and what is your setting for the stream.transcode property?

RE: BBC R3 Lossless Stream
The URL you are using for WS is no longer working. The correct URL is now

Code:
http://a.files.bbci.co.uk/media/live/manifesto/audio/simulcast/hls/nonuk/sbr_low/ak/bbc_world_service.m3u8

I am able to play the R3DASH stream using the URL that you posted.

Hi Simon

Renderer is Naim NDX
stream.transcode set as '*:L16, flac:wav24;176'

I have replaced the URL for BBC WS in the BBCRadio.m3u file. Restarted the server. The WS still does not streaming

Thank you, Nick

You need to rescan to pick up the URL change, not just restart.

To play the R3DASH stream on your Naim renderer, you need to also set aac:L16. This is because your playlist entry for R3DASH specifies aac as the stream type.

RE: BBC R3 Lossless Stream
Hi Simon

I have done as directed and WS and R3DASH are both now working.
Your prompt reply, the information and the streaming update for BBC Radio are all very much appreciated.
I'm one of those who do not relish the demise of FM, being fortunate to own more than one FM tuner including a Naim Nat01 with RSmith roof aerial.

Lets hope BBC do more FLAC broadcasts.

Thanks and regards, Nick
