Not sure if any one else has had an issue with this but I tried to access programmes from the BBC iPlayer and BBC iPlayer Extra. I searched for Clare Teal programmes which it found but when I clicked play it just said Can't Play File.

I was using iPeng. Selected Radios, then selected BBC iPlayer Extra. I then selected BBC Radio 2 AtonZ. Then I selected C Programs, then Clare Teal. It then lists the last 5 programmes by Clare Teal. But none of them will play.

Any ideas? Does BBC iPlayer still work for pre broadcast programmes?

there are a few threads with a similar problem

which OS and LMS version?

and which BBC iPlayer and BBC iPlayer Extra versions and respective settings?

I have just updated BBC iPlayer from version version 1.2.14 to version 1.3.1alpha3 but it made no difference.

I'm very surprised anything worked for you.

BBC stopped WMA in 2014, AAC in 2015. Currently "Listen Again" is only available in HLS (1.3alpha1), DASH (1.4.* & 1.5.* beta) and Flash/AAC (only through Extra).

IIRC 1.3alpha1 will still work but only 7 days of Listen Again. BBCiPlayerExtra needs to be 1.9.3 at least to get recent BBC programs.

As you are on Windows I suggest install the BBCiPlayer 1.5.* and Extra 1.9.5 see http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?106409-BBCiPlayer-V1-5-2-beta-test

Thanks for link to thread.

Sorry if I appear a bit thick but how do I install the latest Plugins for BBC iPlayer?
I've look at these links but I just seem to get text?

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/bpaplugins/betarelease-repo.xml

When I look at Plugins in LMS 7.9 Settings they still seem to point to old out of date versions.

Sorry for asking, but any advice would be appreciated.

Copy and paste the URL into the box at the bottom of the plugins page, then click apply. Follow prompts.
