Hi all,

Hope this is ok to post in this section!

A colleague of mine at the BBC has developed this cool app for Mac OSX which takes the live streams from the Beeb and feeds them into this simple app on your desktop. Simple design but works really well. Also nice that it gives you the up coming schedule from a drop down menu. This guys makes some really cool apps and you should check out his blog for others including RadioAunty which pretty much does the same thing for all the Radio Stations.

Download here:

Hope this is useful to some

damn i have just noticed his link doesn't work, sorry.

I'll see if I can find a new link

Thanks that was very good!

BTW, i am sure you know about it, but just to let you know I currently use a software called zattoo for looking at most of the terrestrial channels in UK. I think there is 5 sec delay in transmission though. But I am happy with that.

not as far as I know mate. I am sure it is easily done though if you know how. The guy is so good though he just makes these things effortlessly in his spare time. His blog is def worth checking from time to time.
