Dear Friends,

We have now almost completed the changes to the current streamed service and we are ready to start delivering this. Firstly the Web player, which is now live and ready to use, you will not need to do anything this will happen automatically. This will now bring the following enhancements:-

  • Drag the thumb to scroll/seek audio or click on track position.
  • Now displays time played out of total for e.g. 00:10 / 02:45
  • Rewind (-10s) and forward (+10s)
  • Volume control

We are now working on delivering the rest of the changes as below and will keep you updated as they go live:-

  • 'Webstat' now becomes ‘Webstat 3.0’, this will now report, Bumblebee, Sonata and external stats. We will now report the device being used for external as well as opening up the listener details, so that they can be seen in isolation as a start to providing user profiles.
  • Link formats – Currently .m3u and .pls is provided, we will now produce a iTunes compatible RSS feed.
  • Archive function, multi sort – This brings a whole new service, to allow both the current edition and a previous week(s) edition(s) to be stored and accessed by listeners. This will be a simple automated service and we will bring more news of this as we have it.

If you require any further information on these updates or just want to talk about the service in general, please come and speak to David Beard - BWBF anytime on 01622 754757 or alternatively email
