    The settings are as above.
    Do I need mplayer/ffmpeg installed?
    No. standard LMS transcoding of AAC is all that is required.

    What version of the plugins are you using ?
    Are both preferences in BBCiPlayer settings set to DASH > HLS > MP3 > FlashAAC

    I'm guessing the 30 day limit was reached

    For what it's worth it is 28 days since the date on this screenshot. As you say it is no longer listed in the much maligned BBC Sounds app either. (I noticed the other day that the BBC Sounds app stops playing after around 10 minutes with an error, the old iPlayer never did that.)

    Tried to check on Default skin, but It's having a sulk again and doesn't show Radio items or Apps

    A bit off topic. I believe (but stand to be corrected) the UK 30 day limit is not a BBC restriction but a UK broadcasting regulator one - the regulator may have felt more than 30 days would give BBC unfair advantage - Netflix, Sky, Disney HBO etc must think that's hilarious.

    (I noticed the other day that the BBC Sounds app stops playing after around 10 minutes with an error, the old iPlayer never did that.)
    AFAIK They use the same underlying tech and CDN networks. Possibly Sounds is more MP3/Podcast rather than stream.
    Is this a nocebo effect ?
