    The BBC have gone out of their way to make sure people cannot find program alphabetically.
    So you had to trawl through all the Event pages? I was looking under Gideon Coe since I knew he presented the "Event".

    DASH is not lossless. DASH is a transport like Apple HLS. Audio quality depends on codec which is either AAC (lossy) or Flac (lossless).

    DASH lossless (i.e.Flac over DASH) has nothing to do with BBCiPlayerExtra - the plugin for this thread.

    DASH / Flac is with BBCiPlayer V1.5.4 - please post to this thread http://forums.slimdevices.com/showth...version/page37

    Instruction on how to install 1.5.4.4 and settings to use for Flac is given in this post of this thread http://forums.slimdevices.com/showth...l=1#post888243

    I've tried reining in posts on Dash / Flac to a single topic so please don't continue discussion in this one.

    So the schedule feeds iPlayer Extras uses are supposed to disappear on 1 May 2018. get_iplayer is discussing the same issue. Is there any sign of a replacement API from the BBC?

    Not that I am aware of.

    Assuming the Beeb do as you suggest then Iplayer Extras will be broken and we will be left with the standard listen again for seven days via the main Iplayer plug in ...

    The first post on this thread also gives the date as 1 May 2018. We always knew this probably had a 1 year life.

    It is a waste of time to discuss BBC support of APIs. They don't talk to individuals only companies and organisations.

    The 1 May 2018 date was given in a BBC post somewhere - presumably it is the end date of some contract BBC have with some 3rd party. Things may stop on 1 May 2018 or they may not so there is no point fretting about it. If something happens at some point in the future, it may be possible to do something sometime like last year but there is no new information.

    The schedule APIs did go away last year - the BBC hacked the Programme API into a bodged up feed of all program data for all times into one "file" and the Extra plugin filters and organises it and it is this feed that may go away.

    The BBC promised a replacement API called Nitro and it would be available in Oct 2015, after many delays it now seems this effort has died http://docs.bbcnewslabs.co.uk/Nitro.html

    Essentially access to 30 days (or more for some programs) will be lost - the BBCiPlayer uses the official vendor feed which just has 7 days of programmes.
