  • Often when using my PC I like to listen to BBC radio at the same time however when I go to the BBC website using Opera all I ever get is the 'Sound of Silence' 'Please try again later' this is clearly a problem with Opera because if I use Firefox instead the radio works fine. My problem is that I switched to using Opera because I was having constant problems with Firefox that made it almost unusable so although I can listen to the radio using Firefox I would rather not. When I do use Firefox it always takes a very long time to get started usually more than a few minutes so I often miss the start of what I want to listen to. While listening to the radio with Opera doesn't work at all watching BBC TV works fine.

    Does anyone have any suggestions I have tried to find an answer on the BBC website but I have had no success so far, so I thought I'd try here.

  • You can download some stream files - playlist files - to listen to the radio OFF browser. You can get some from Vincent Lo's site or some other place. 😎
