Yes. :-)  I've  tried excluding 'bidi' as the fetch info was showing "/bi"
when I got the 'slow' behaviour. The result is that I now get the video at
rates back up around 50 Mb/s. Coconut! :-)

Now lists "/ll" which I assume means limelight.

So - fingers crossed - I can resume operation as before. The curio being
why the change in my 'default supplier' occured a couple of days ago,
particularly given the much slower results.
