    BBC Radio Live Streams with Track Info

    Hi all,

    Can't seem to find a definitive answer - is there a way to listen to the BBC Radio Live Streams with track information included?
    Would prefer to be able to access via MySqueezebox but connected to LMS would be useful too.

    Thanks in advance,

    Not possible with mysqueezebox.com as trackinfo is available through a special BBC interface and not part of the stream metadata (i.e. no ICY data). Also you will be playing MP3 streams with mysqueezebox.com

    If you install the BBCiplayer plugin on your LMS then track data is available live and also through "Recent Tracks" sub menu for past track on a few of the live stations. Live stream is probably best played using DASH format.

    To install the plugin add the following repository to the Setting/Plugins tab

    Thanks for taking the time to provide such a concise answer.

    I've updated the iPlayer app and now track information when the server is turned on - great stuff.
