    Receiver won't play most radio streams

    As the title suggests, my receivers (the other players work fine) won't play most radio stations. A few do play, for example, Radio Paradise and Secret Agent. There's nothing in the logs, but the Controller displays "Time out" while iPeng doesn't show any messages. I think it's the mp3 radio stations that do not work, but the sample pool is rather small. mp3-podcasts play without problems. I never changed this how-to-decode-this-or-that-file-format config file and I am a bit of a loss here.

    Playing problems are usually either transcoding or https.

    I'm guessing https.
    what version of IO::Socket::SSL - if not 2.0x - then update

    Try LMS setting play to proxy all streams on the player.

    I'll try that. But shouldn't all players be affected?

    Yes if they are all older IP3K players but you have not given info what other players are. IIRC latest squeezelite supports https natively.

    The other players are Touches, SLX instances, the iPeng player, and my Sonos speakers.

    Setting the receivers to "Proxied streaming" helped, thank you! Why do I need that all of a sudden?

    Many stations are changing to https only whereas for a few years they also support http and https. This has been the case with BBC in the last year.

    Touches should have the same problem but perhaps they have been proxied already for a different reason. Touch have not been updated to support native https.

    Don't know the https support status of iPeng, SLX (Squeezlite-X ?) or Sonos (probably via BT or a upnp or airplay bridge which has a version of Squeezelite)
