BBC radio through Rhythmbox

Posted

Mainly for my own reference: It's possible to stream BBC radio through the 'radio' part of Rhythmbox (and this is preferable to the iPlayer because of Ubuntu's slightly flaky flash support). 

To use it just add a new 'Internet radio station', e.g. Radio 1 is: mms://wmlive-acl.bbc.co.uk/wms/radio1/radio1_nb_e1s1
