RE: BBC R3 Lossless Stream
Owing to popular demand (four more PMs in the last few hours), I have decided to publish the instructions for using the prototype.

Regarding the need for WAV transcoding, many players can play the FLAC stream without transcoding but a few players cannot. Even if transcoding isn't necessary, it might be desirable because of possible improvements to sound quality. In the instructions below, I have explained how to play the stream with and without WAV transcoding so that people can choose whether or not to enable it.

To try the prototype test build, do the following:

1) In the Packages tab of the Properties window, type the following in the 'Other package' field: minimstreamer-0.7.1

2) Click Install and follow the prompts to install the package

3) When installation is complete, click Relaunch

4) Create a .m3u playlist containing the following lines:
#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1,[R3DASH;flac] BBC Radio 3 lossless
http://vs-dash-ww-rd-live.bbcfmt.hs.llnwd.net/al/lossless/client_manifest.mpd
The first line isn't needed if you are adding this stream to an existing radio playlist that starts with #EXTM3U.

5) If WAV transcoding is required (or desired), set the stream.transcode property in the System tab of the Properties window to the following: flac:wav24

6) Rescan the library

7) You should now be able to play the lossless stream to your renderer

Please report any problems by posting to this thread.

Edit: updated these instructions on 11th August (version 0.7.1 now released).
