Hook up chromecast to receiver

Somewhat lost in all the fuss about the BBC retiring its WMA internet radio streams is the fact that there are now high quality 320kbps streams for all BBC radio stations. Apart from Radio 3, which has had a 320kbps stream for a while, the best quality it has been possible to listen to any BBC station in hook up chromecast to receiver has been 128kbps. These 128k streams have never sounded too good to my ears, especially through my Sonos system.

To my knowledge, this is the first time it has been possible to listen to 6 Music in high fidelity in any format. The new streams use the Apple developed HLS protocol, meaning you can listen to them simply by pasting the link into Safari. Another good way to listen to them is to use the VLC media player, which is available on pretty much any platform. It is likely that these streams will only work from a UK-based IP address but I have not verified that.

Thanks for these, I have my desktop PC with widows 7 connected via HDMI to my Harman Kardon AVR 3500 receiver and used to listen to the radio via winamp. The quality was not as good through the WMA format, but it was better than nothing when the BBC decided to turn it off. I’ve been looking for something like this for a while and so glad I stumbled upon these. I am struggling to actually play these, vlc does so but is very demanding of resources especially with my small and underpowered laptop. Any experiences of how to use the streams with a normal music player e. They will work in the VLC player if that is of use to you? Is there anyway to contact you privately to ask you re a stream link regards something else about the stream?
