I'm delighted to announce a new version of the AlienBBC plugin. For those of you who haven't seen it before - it allows the user to browse and listen to BBC radio streams.
The new version is a major departure - it's pretty much a complete refactoring of the old code, adding many more streams to be played, including:
All Radio 4 streams (not just the AOD ones)
All Radio 5 streams (not just the AOD ones)
All BBC7 output (that's the whole of the last 7 days of programming!)
All 'Live' BBC Radio Stations
All Available BBC Local Radio Stations
In addition, there's a new transcoder architecture which should clear up all instability problems, as well as allowing playlists to work properly.
And if that wasn't enough - there's a web interface for it too, for those of you who prefer that as your method to interact with it (although web design is hardly my forte - so it is kinda fugly!).
I've been using the core of it for a couple of weeks now, and it looks pretty stable to me. No doubt, however, you'll all find ways to break it, so if you _DO_ - please let me know!
As ever, it's available from: http://www.mrtickle.org/alienbbc.html
Oh. And I'd just like to take the time to acknowledge the hard work of Craig Eales, who was responsible for refactoring all the menu code, as well as the BBC7 parser. Great work, Craig!
