I just don't get why the BBC feels the need to move these stream URLs around every few months.

I don't understand this either. This has been a constant nuisance since the early days of livestreaming, and it is not only the BBC doing this, but all broadcasters all over the world. It seems they keep running away from their listeners all the time.

Me too. Woke up yesterday unable to listen to the Today Program on BBC Radio 4. Searched around but saw nothing posted "today 26th October". Checked again in the evening, still nothing.stopped working too.

At the office I had hooked-up a box running mplayer (pointing to the a.bbci url) feeding a Yamaha MusicCast over HDMI that had effectively been bricked by their withdrawal of Shoutcast earlier this year, the box being woken-up at lunch time to listen to WATO.

Now, stone the crows, if the darned thing didn't wake-up and start playing WATO! So, so long as I don't terminate and attempt to restart mplayer, the instance started that had been started weeks ago with the a.bbci url on the command-line will continue to work...

I feel they are toying with us.

I left an mplayer -loop 0 running on the a.bbci url spitting-out 410 Gone endlessly in the vain hope they'll realise that they've pee'd-off thousands of radio listeners, but suspect the unholy alliance of techies and higher-ups will only smirk with gleeful mirth at large number of failed connections. I'd rather than sign-up to BBC Sounds and let them track the bewotsit out of me.

Full credit to Peter Brooks for trying, but they seem unstoppably impelled to bump the subscription numbers to BBC Sounds in their chosen reaction to the threat to the licensing model.

Anyone get the new 5 Live Sports Extra link to work? It's giving me 403 Forbidden. Maybe it needs some cookie or a header.
(And yes, the machine is in UK and used to be able to access the previous UK-only links. Alnd 5 sports extra is indeed transmitting at the time I tried.)

The other stations work OK for me so big thanks to bpsib.

I just don't get why the BBC feels the need to move these stream URLs around every few months. Clearly a lot of folks listen from apps, websites, and devices that aren't [BBC Sounds].

That's exactly what they want to stop.

When you listen on BBC Sounds, they know who you are, where you are, and what other content you consume from the BBC. I have downloaded the data and looked into it - and it's quite the read.

Cheers, that works a treat.

@bpsib can you fix the link? Thanks again for this great resource.
You might also consider adding a UK-only link for Radio 5 Live as sports are usually geoblocked on the worldwide stream. (don't make the mistake I just made - there are two "ww"s to be changed.)

BTW, if anyone needs the lower bandwidth versions. the streams also seem to support replacing the "96000" with "48000".

Use an old mobile phone as "radio tuner" and play those BBC programmes using 'Classical Music Player'; use the 'add my station' or 'edit station' function to copy-paste the new URLs into the player.

Yet, every minute, a little ping of data was going back to the BBC’s analytics partner.

When I’m using the app, it’s sending back analytics every second.

I must say, this is much more data than you would ever need to just give someone appropriate recommendations for something else to listen to. :(

Anyone had any success getting the new URLs to work in Euro Truck Simulator 2?

I was wondering that also, It would be so much better driving with the radio actually working.

EtS2 only understands MP3. I use minimstreamer to transcode to MP3 for AAC stations.

You can guess the other stations and bitrates. Chromecast audio doesn't work with akamai links ether, lstn.lv ultimately streams the akamai stuff but puts some sort of wrapper that is accepted by chromecast audio

Great, glad it worked for you. Worry is if BBC kills that too. We need to understand what google assistant does when we ask it to play bbc radio, because they won't kill that and its not through bbc sounds. I don't have too many issues with identifying and authorising myself to the bbc, though not ideal. If I need to embed my login and password in the stream url i will do so.

I would go along with all of that. Fingers crossed the links get a stay of execution and it ultimately becomes a moot point.

Hi. Apologies if this has been addressed before.

I live in Thailand and have been using the 'BBC 5 Live' link for some months now, but for the last 2 days - halfway thru' a broadcast the "Due to rights restrictions..." message kicks in when a normal program is being aired. The same happens on the BBC Sounds website. Any ideas ?? Thanks.

FWIW, the mp3 streams for World Service stopped working today. There is an announcement the service has stopped working due to rights restrictions or a technical fault, and on BBC Sounds the FAQs about shoutcast still are saying it should be working for WS outside the UK. I've sent a message to the BBC and asked about the future of the mp3 streams and when they will be restored.

Well, we've already had the m3u8 alternatives to mp3 in the playlists above. In fact, this is the end of shoutcast at the BBC, although the FAQ on BBC Sounds still says that it will be preserved for the World Service outside the UK. I received a reply from the BBC Sounds support today which consisted in a boilerplate message saying that they were afraid of third parties misuse their content and mix it with advertising. This is why they leave it to the radio manufacturers to make BBC content available. If your device won't play it turn to your radio manufacturer. Or use https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds in your webbrowser. No word lost about the technically minded who just want to use the equipment of their own choice for listening. I think I don't fit into this world, onve again.

We could keep the World Service playlist posted as it is and still wait for a while if shoutcast yet returns. Or we could delete it right away.

I have good news. The Shoutcast streams of World Service are back. BBC Support now says it was indeed a technical fault. Well …

Thank you to everyone working to keep these streams up. Particularly the world service.

"No word lost about the technically minded who just want to use the equipment of their own choice" -- I just wonder if we can put out a project as a community to proxy streams to mp3 with icecast. SBC's like the Raspberry Pi can run 24/7 using little power and can help reduce bandwidth strain from a household on the BBC if multiple radios were ever tuned into the stream.

Then hardware manufacturers if they could implement software decoding rather than hardware decoding to support new technology and new codecs, so that devices don't go obsolete.
