DASH / HLS on Windows 8/10 Mobile outside UK
« on: May 05, 2017, 03:38:59 PM »
The Beebotron links work well for iPlayer, DASH and HLS, except that I have to use iPlayer as I can't get the DASH or HLS to play. What would be a good player?
I am using a Microsoft smartphone running Win 8.1.
iPlayer is OK but has problems after pausing, so I can live with it.
I have VLC which tries to read HLC format, but quits with the message "Can't listen in the background".

Thanks in advance,
jnw

Sorry so late answering this, and I wish I had better news. I have no idea. I wish I were more knowledgeable in this area as I'm having a bit of trouble, myself. Good luck, and if you find an answer please post here for others. :)

Solution has been found: Upgrading said smartphone to Windows Mobile 10.
That might not work for everyone, but now the HLS stream plays straight out of the link.
