    There seems to be some type, then a link and then some further type.
    I use JRiver and that has an ''Open URL'' tab which I use for my Internet listening and am hoping your endeavours will let me type a URL into it.
    Hi James

    I'd be surprised if JRiver can handle this stream - it's all pretty new stuff, codec-wise. However, give it a go. Here's the bit of the URL that follows the https:// part:

    vs-dash-ww-rd-live.bbcfmt.hs.llnwd.net/al/lossless/client_manifest.mpd

    Hopefully this site won't mangle that!

    Hi Rob,

    you're right, JRiver doesn't know what to do with it !! Ah well, never mind.
    Thanks anyway.
    I can still listen via JRiver using the BBC web-site and the ''Open Live'' option. If I set Windows to 48kHz then there'll be no up/down-sampling being done and I should get the full benefit.

    Cheers,

    Jim.

    The VLC 3.0.0 "overnight build" works flawlessly using that link to open the R3 stream, and to my ears it also sounds better than through the Firefox 51+ browser.
