- BBC iplayer problems
I usually listen to radio 6 at work through the “listen live” option on the BBC iplayer but not today. Yesterday it was working fine but today when I open iplayer I get the window which then goes blank and there is no sound. I have tried other radio stations (well radio 4) and get the same thing. Has anyone else had problems or knows how to fix this?Posted 7 years agoElfinsafetyMember
iPlayer is as shonky as hell. I get messages with certain programmes, that ‘this content is only available to UK viewers’, when other stuff plays fine. Sometimes a programme will appear in the iPlayer Desktop app, but not actually download. And other irritating things.
Could just be a temporary fault on the iPlayer website.
R4 working here. Very low sound level though. R6 working fine.Posted 7 years agozebardyMember
What was the url you were trying to listen to radio 6 through? The link from the main iplayer site works for me (http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/radio/bbc_6music).
Elfinsafty, the beeb uses geo ip tracking type stuff to tell if you are in the uk, so your problems are probably related to your work place/isp routing some of their traffic out via an ip not registered as in the uk.Posted 7 years ago
