Normally Radio 4 works fine for me. For the whole of today every time I try to listen to this stream from Staff Picks:

mms://wmlive-acl.bbc.co.uk/wms/radio4/radio4_nb_e1s1#slim:noscan=1,aid=2

I hear a pilot's discussion of flying inverted for 30 seconds then I get 'rebuffering' for 30 seconds before repeating, again and again!

Very odd - does everyone else hear the same thing?

I have had oddities with the ASX streams via Staff Picks (esp when they were my favourites). The url seems to be differently configured to the normal BBC ASX streams (what is that _nb_e1s1#slim:noscan=1,aid=2 stuff for too?).

I've gone back to using the iPlayer or AlienBBC streams which seem to work much better now than they used to and are of a superior audio quality to the asx streams.

I am on 7.3 (if it makes any difference).

Hi there,

Yes I've been getting this since Saturday I also seemed to be getting on my SqueezeNetwork favorite as well and it is still doing it.

Anyone know of a fix?

Many thanks, Tim.

This is definitely a BBC problem since it's also happening on their iPlayer. Maybe they have no-one working on the weekends since you'd imagine they would have at least switched the stream off.

Anyone know what programme the clip is from? Just curious!

Hi there,

I thought it was someone in a capsized boat not a pilot?

Still not fixed this morning?

Tim.
