Radio player cuts off around 12 minutes and fifty seconds while listening to BBC Radio

  • Radio player cuts off around 12 minutes and fifty seconds while listening to BBC Radio 5 or BBC Radio London.

    I don't get this problem when:

    • I listen to Jazz FM or Solar Radio on Radio Player
    • I listen to BBC Radio 5 or BBC Radio London on Tunein.com
    • I use an alternative browser like Chrome

    I am on -
    Version: 46.0.2597.39 (PGO) - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: Stable. System: Windows 7 64-bit (WoW64)

    The issue also occurred in the previous edition of Opera. I also toggled the setting on Opera Turbo without success.

  • Strangely, the Radio player plays BBC Radio 5 and BBC Radio London continuously after changing the VPN setting to Canada.

    I tried contacting the BBC through their online chat facility but realised they only had very limited IT knowledge, ie clearing cookies and caches - the equivalent of turning on/off pc. They then said the BBC doesn't support Opera for online radio streaming.

    Any suggestions?
