I've figured out something about these BBC streams. I get the URLs for BBC radio stations from a website called radiofeeds.co.uk because the BBC are not very forthcoming with direct URLs for their content. The URL I got from there for BBC6Music was http://as-hls-uk-live.bbcfmt.hs.llnwd.net/pool_904/live/uk/bbc_6music/bbc_6music.isml/bbc_6music-audio%3d320000.norewind.m3u8 but after adding the same station in the same 320kbps AAC/HLS stream via the search on your app the URL was http://a.files.bbci.co.uk/media/live/manifesto/audio/simulcast/hls/uk/sbr_high/ak/bbc_6music.m3u8 - this latter version can be stopped without any issues so I'll just use those from now on. - Mar 05 2020

Love the update, only comment so far is that when i type into the search box, I naturally then want to press the return key, but this causes the window to close rather than to submit the search. Not sure if this is something that you can change? - Mar 05 2020

No probs! Thanks again for a great widget! I just read that the 96kbps version of stream I posted may work outside the UK - http://as-hls-ww-live.bbcfmt.hs.llnwd.net/pool_904/live/ww/bbc_6music/bbc_6music.isml/bbc_6music-audio%3d96000.norewind.m3u8 - Feb 25 2020

BBC also do some MP3 and very few non-HLS AAC streams, I've tried these and they work fine and can be stopped. I'm no expert but I believe the issue may be something around the way HLS streams differ from traditional streamed audio.

I found a workaround which is to start playing a non-HLS stream, wait for that finish buffering and then stop it. - Feb 25 2020

I'm playing that very link in your media player widget right now and it works perfectly until I try to stop playback where it stops for half a second and starts again. As I mentioned, this is a HLS Live Streaming - Feb 25 2020

http://a.files.bbci.co.uk/media/live/manifesto/audio/simulcast/hls/uk/sbr_high/llnw/bbc_6music.m3u8 - as it's the bbc in the UK, it may be restricted to UK ip addresses - Feb 25 2020

Hi great widget, love the idea. 9ne issue I'm having is that I can't stop playback of my streams. It seems to pause for a second and then start again. They're all HLS aac streams of BBC Radio. I've not checked yet to see if the issue stops happening with older mp3 versions of the stream. I'll check tonight. - Feb 25 2020
