BBC iplayer Radio Website

Sun Apr 26, 2015 10:38 am

Has anyone got flash working on the Pi who would mind trying if they can listen to radio stations on the BBC Radio Website (think it uses flash)

I have Iplayer working on KODI, but that does not seem to give radio stations,
hopefully BBC will be able to change the BBC Radio web site to use HTML5 at some point.

there is also http://www.iplayerconverter.co.uk/default.aspx

but that does not seem to work also

any advice would be welcome thanks

Forget Flash, it's dead. There is a horribly complex recipe to get an ancient version of a flash clone running but you don't need that.

If you want to listen to BBC radio use mpd/mpc and an audio stream.
