Since upgrading to HS cannot get iPlayer to play any BBC radio stations, however Firefox works fine. Firefox is my secondary browser as I prefer Safari and would like to get Safari to work.

Looked at the BBC help files and cleared the cache, and deleted and reloaded Safari, to no avail.

Any ideas?

I tried it just after you posted and it didn't work. I just tried again and it was fine, after I trusted Flash, then it had a listen live pop up. I didn't get that before. Are you signed in to the BBC site?

Yes signed in to BBC, Firefox works great. The TV player works on Safari. I have flash connected to iPlayer. Just don't like the way iplayer displays now with all the extraneous material on the screen. it was much better with just the schedule.

Will have another go tomorrow.

What bothers me is that radio pop up window that says at the top "You're not getting the full Radio Player experience in this browser. Try clearing cookies or use a different browser".

I first noticed this in Safari 5 in Snow Leopard and thought, "Oh well, that's why." But when I switched to Mavericks and was using a more or less up to date version of Safari, the message still appears.

Yet weirdly, despite the message, the radio still plays fine. I just tried in Firefox and there was no message ... and no bloody sound either. :evil:

Have you tried setting the User Agent to Firefox in Safari's Develop menu?

Have you got DNT set on?

Quote:
The “Do Not Track” (DNT) setting

Some internet browsers have a DNT setting. This sends a signal to websites asking them not to track your browsing.

This doesn’t work with BBC websites at the moment.


Safari > Preferences > Privacy > Ask websites not to track me

I'm not convinced, but then worth trying.

I wasn't convinced, as I said. It works for me too and I also have DNT on. I do get the cookie warning but that can be ignored. I only tried for this as I don't listen to BBC online. That is what Sonos is for.

Don't forget that if it's live BBC radio you want (rather than Catch-up) you can also get it via iTunes.

Problem seems to have solved with the update 10.13.2
