    Good result here running Windows 10 with a i5-4460 processor! When I use BBCiPlayer for Radio 4 live, there is no start-up delay or rebuffering when "Seconds to delay start live stream" is set to 2 mins, but there is when set to 15 s. Many thanks, bpa.

    One thing I've noticed is that the metadata stops updating/changing after an hour or so. Not really a problem and I'd also noticed it in previous versions, but as the stream consistency has been improved and now doesn't require a 'restart' the quirk is more noticeable.
    I noticed it too but it is not consistent. I'll have to look at it again.

    Near bottom of BBciPlayer menu "Listen Live - alt CDN". I've no idea whether there is any streaming difference as there is no audio difference but included it for completeness (and possibly testing). If a user wants the menu in a different location - they can change the menu.opml files.

    Did you have long delays/gaps/rebuffering with 1.4.9 on live streams ?

    Can't find it where you've described it to be and I've reloaded the default menu and cleared the cache.

    Attached is screenshot of menu. Very strange - I've double checked that update menu.opml is in the 1.5.2 zip file on sourceforge

    Here's my menu page. I've also checked the menu.opml file and can't see any reference to an alternative CDN.

    Yes - lots of rebuffering. Actually, as a result I'd given up on the Windows server implementation, and used solely my QNAP/linux implementation. I'm really pleased to have both as now viable.

    V. Strange. I did a delete and a reinstall and the alt CDN and Live MP3 menus were present.

    Do you have a "Buffer Threshold" setting in BBCiPlayer Settings ?
    Have you setup a custom menu.opml ?

    Surely he's looking at the wrong menu level? Isn't it at the level one above this?
