    Not sure this is the correct place to post, the request is can the audio from BBC TV services be made available to play via LMS?

    I ask in this thread, because the BBC iplayer and BBC sounds use the same login/account, so in my simplistic mind perhaps the TV audio could be made available through this plugin?

    The use case is to "listen" to shows that don't really need the video, mostly news/debates etc such as Newsnight, Question Time (which used to be simulcast on TV and R5 but, alas, no longer).

    Alternatively of course, is there an online resource for BBC TV audio that can be streamed to LMS, I can't seem to find anything?
    If the BBC stream their video content in DASH format (like the audio) then it is probably possible (the youtube plugin extracts audio streams from dash video/audio).
    The problem would be how to present the content, I wouldn't have thought that there is an api that is as accessible as the "Radio and Music Services" API that drives BBC sounds. It could probably be done with screen scraping.
    So all in all, if someone has the will driven by seeing the use case as convincing enough, then it probably could be achieved. It's probably a lot of effort though for a limited amount of viable content.

    A bit OT.

    Freeview and Freesat provide TV services using MPEG2-TS encoding which can be converted into HLS stream without transcoding. Some dubious IPTV services offer BBC TV HLS streams - they have never worked for me. Official HLS TV streams have played OK for me on LMS.

    The home brew approach would be to have your own satellite box which provide the IPTV streams on your own network. The TVHeadend plugin (https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...nd-integration ) provides some facility for radio - I think it is may be possible for TV and you may get EPG. It may be a bit of work and expense if you don't have Freesat and an appropriate box.

    Even more of a project would be to use Freeview broadcast (DVB-T) to provide the TV feeds and a USB DVB-S/T dongle attached to LMS server to tune etc.

    The hard work is to make it easy to use.

    The whole thing appears OT to me . However, if there are dash video streams I think that also could be a relatively straight forward route to go down to get it streaming, as it has already been done (see youtube plugin). But all the routes you mention are valid routes. The question is, is it worth the effort?

    Definitely OT.

    This approach may only be worthwhile if internet service is bad. Some users use TVHeadend (e.g. https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...nd-integration ) or FM adaptors because in their location internet connection is very poor & broadcast (Terrestrial/satellite) can provides an alternative.

    And of course a fun tinkerers project for someone ...

    I just tried streaming BBC News (TV) from TVHeadend (UK DVB-T) to SB2 using the squeezebox profile that I had already in place (and I expect I set-up following the TVHeadend guide here) and it worked but with lots of rebuffering. May well work better with a more modern player but I didn't check to see where the buffering problem was.

    Connect timed out

    Been successfully using BBC Sounds plugin, via RaspberryPi/piCorePlayer and SQB radio, for months until recently when I get a "Connect timed out" on accessing 'Stations & Schedules' through iPeng.
    If I bypass iPeng and access the LMS web screen directly via the piCorePlayer, I notice that if I open the plugin tab, at the top of the screen I find the following error message:
    "Bad repository https://github.com/LMS-Community/lms...extensions.xml - Connect timed out"
    As this is incomprehensible to me, I would appreciate some help as to what to do to get BBC Sounds up and running again. Thank you.

    A common reason for connection timeout is LMS or OS not up to date with SSL.

    What version of LMS and what version of IO::Socket::SSL as shown in WebUI Settings/Information (should be about 2.06)

    edit:
    In a Dec 2020 post you say updated to LMS 8.0 - that may be marginal.

    Many thanks for your quick response. LMS 8.1.1 and IO::Socket::SSL is 2.066

    Following log extract may be of some help? Is Spotty the problem - if so then why?

    Looks like something has gone wrong with your LMS, it can't open a socket to call out to the internet.
    Have you tried rebooting your server? Hopefully its as simple as that, however it may be something has got corrupt and you need to reinstall LMS
