Hi,

I live in the UK and yet the "server" for my squeezbox's states I am in Germany - this means I cannot listen to live sport broadcast from the BBC as they will only allow UK listeners...which I am...but I suppose "they" think I am in Germany.

Is there anyway to get around this?

Thanks

Pete

Run a local Squeezebox Server with iPlayer plug-in.

IIRC the German mysqueezebox.com serves the EU

Use "#slim:noscan=1" at the end of the URL of the actual stream not the URL of the playlist.

Thanks for the answer - could you expand on what you mean though?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/wm_asx/aod/radio4.asx#slim:noscan=1 does not work on the SB radio...there is an error....

Thanks

Pete

The URL you used is a playlist containing many actual streaming URLs.

You need to open the ASX URL and use one of the playable URL. I cannot give you one as I am outside the UK and get the non UK URLs.

The content of the ASX playlist for a non UK user looks like

Maybe being a little thick here but how did you open the asx file to get the links?

Thanks

Thanks - that seems to have worked - won't know until later but hopefully it should be ok!

Thanks again
