I see above that some said they updated the firmware and got it to work but not sure how to do this any suggestions ?
This post is inspired by the fact that last week I promised someone that I would install SqueezePlug on a Raspberry pi and put LMS on as a server.
In the mean time the BBC changed their streaming protocols, causing general mayhem and it took about a week before things began to settle down (and a bit longer for me to understand what to do).
So this is a blow by blow KISS description of what I did this last night.
If I have missed anything please feel free to berate me, I don't care.
As always with a 'how-to', no guarantee is given that it will work or not cause damage.
I used Putty to perform the restarts where they were required.
Installed LMS on SqueezePlug v7.5 on a pi B+.
Expanded the root file.
Configured the LMS with most of the plugins I wanted.
Downloaded and installed the HLS plugin (for the new BBC streams)
I first put the v7.9 nightly on the pi but it would not accept the HSL plugin (no idea why).
I then un-installed LMS and installed v7.5.5; that accepted the plugin.
Downloaded expectingtofly's Raspberry Pi ffmpeg binary from http://forums.slimdevices.com/showth...l=1#post807365
and unzipped to the Desktop.
Used Putty to SSH in and sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
(required for the BBC streams).
At the finish, the message said not everything was installed and I did sudo apt-get update
(I think that was the command, anyway it is suggested in the message)
This gave me ffmpeg in /usr/bin/ffmpeg
I then swapped over to WinSCp to edit some files.
Logged into the pi as root and nosoup4u.
Used the default view with two panes.
In the right-hand pane went to root in the drop down box.
Navigated to /usr/bin/ffmpeg
and then dragged the ffmpeg file from the Desktop into /usr/bin/ffmpeg
and agreed to replacement.
Went back to my browser (Firefox) and opened LMS in the web page and installed my plugins including the HLS plugin.
LMS Webgui, Settings>Plugins, scroll down to the page bottom for Additional Repositories,add this line in the box,
http://bpaplugins.googlecode.com/svn/tr ... layhls.xml
click Accept, restart and return to tick the install box, click Accept and restart again.
Checked in LMS Settings >Advanced>File Types that the hls files were not greyed out.
Downloaded the new menu-opml file for iPlayer.

Unzipped the UK files to the Desktop
Went back to WinSCP and navigated to /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/cache/InstalledPlugins/Plugins/BBCiPlayer
Dragged the menu-opml file across and accepted replacement.
Back to Putty and sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
Realised I had not installed Lame
sudo apt-get install Lame
Then stopped Squeezeplug, swapped the micro SD card into the Pi2 and started the Pi2.
Waited for it to boot, seems to take SqueezePlug a long time, then finished the install of Spotify, selected my BBC radio favourites from the iPlayer app, tested Spotify and a few favourites; everything played.
Thanks to all the people at Slimdevices forum for their hard work and to PW here for reminding me of the Hack (the same method was used from pi B to B+ for Squeezeplug) and thanks to the folk on this thread as well.
Hope this helps somebody to get going.
