BBC kills live streaming feeds - EDIT - restored in v2.93
categories: [ Announcements ]
They're on a roll!
Not content with just killing the ION feeds, the BBC has also removed the resources get_iplayer relies on to stream live TV.
get_iplayer maintainer dinkypumpkin states:
This problem is indicated by the following error messages:If you can't quite believe it, read the same thing again in a forum post here.
ERROR: Failed to get version pid metadata from iplayer site ERROR: Could not get version pid metadata
There is no workaround and no prognosis on when or if live TV streaming will be restored.
So, for now, that's all folks!
