Error getting stream descriptions

Around Friday 2 May, the BBC changed the format of the “media selector” their web servers return, which Listen Again uses to decide how to stream the audio (for both UK and International streams).  The immediate result of this was that Listen Again version 1.5 and earlier cannot understand which streams it can use, and so you will see the dreaded “error getting stream descriptions” error message.

I’ve released version 1.6 of Listen Again which should understand both the new and old formats.  I’ve only tested it in the UK, but it may work for international streams too.  Look out for the update coming in the next 5 working days.
