I have a script which issues the following for listening to 'live' radio
get_iplayer --stream --flush --type=liveradio "$1" --player="mplayer
-cache 64 -"
where $1 is the station I want to listen to.
If $1=Radio 1, Radio 2 etc. then this seems to work at least some of the
time ( maybe 1 in every 2 or 3 attempts )
if $1= World Service then it never seems to work.
In each case, get_iplayer appears to locate the correct stream, but the
error message I get seems to indicate problems with the cache, hence the
--flush option ( which I'm not convinced makes any difference )
Is there anything obviously stupid about what I'm doing? Any mode
options that need to be set up?
I have a recollection that different channels were streamed at different
bit-rates - could this be an issue? Do I need to change parameters
dependent on the particular channel I want to listen to?
More information about the get_iplayer
