I've been happily using the BBC iPlayer and BBC iPlayer Extra plugins for years and they broke about two weeks ago with constant connection timeout.

I am aware that there are various threads which I have tried to follow, however I'd appreciate a simple response stating if anyone had a working plug-in that can stream BBC iPlayer Listen Again streams?

I'm using LMS 7.9.0-1487582706 running off a QANP NAS connection to a Squeezebox Touch.

Both plugins are working OK.

This sounds like a local issue.

What version of the plugins have you installed ?
What repo URL have you used to install the plugin ?
What are the BBCiPlayer setting ?

Hi
I'm also having issues only with iplayer extras , for example if i go to bbcr6 and select any show it gives me a error of url lack of io socket ssl. Might be a local problem but worked fine til recently.
I cant get a menu of past shows.
BBCiplayer extra ver 2.0.0

A quick test of a few BBC R6 program using the A-z menu - and they play OK for me.

You have to be more specific what fails as sometimes a single program is faulty.

What are your BBCiplayer and Extra Settings ?
AFAIK ssl is not used within the BBCiplayer or Extras so please show a copy of the log messages where this error is displayed.

Hi
It a problem with LMS , im running it on a qnap. I'm trying to investigate it now.
So yes its nothing to do with your plugins, luckily i can still play recent shows using your iplayer plugin.

Thanks

That error says that you are getting a timeout from BBC - that means BBC is not replying to a request for the URL http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/availability/6music.xml
It is a valid URL so the problem is either BBC or your network connection from LMS host to BBC.
