Time for the BBC to leave iTunes

The BBC has switched Global News Podcast from an MPEG audio file to the MPEG AUDIO STREAM format. This is not currently supported by Apple iPlayer (currently version 12.8.2.3). Indeed it is not signed off by W3C as fully defined and approved. The file is located at [h ttp://open.live.bbc.co.uk/mediaselector/6/redir/version/2.0/mediaset/audio-nondrm-download-low/proto/http/vpid/p07cv45x.mp3] — Reason why I want downloadable files? I live on an island with poor internet connections. I cannot “stream”. To listen to podcasts I must download them when the connections are good and listen (often repeatedly) later. Why don’t I just listen to the radio? Nothing I want to listen to is broadcast when I want to listen to it. — Apple, please, please, please do what the Russian-inspired British Brainwashing Consortium wants: decline to publish links to files which fail to comply with your standards. — iTunes was useful for the years it took these fascists to build their own internet platforms to restore their direct control (of entirely tax-payer (and licences are a tax) funded media - media that rightfully belongs to us tax-payers on the basis that whomsoever pays for the commission, owns the commission). They don’t need iTunes now - except to use it to advertise (for free) media only available on their own platforms - so let them go.
