Strike ep.2 - no 25fps version?
#1
For some reason I can't download my usual hlshd1 25fps version of:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0...-episode-2

The first episode was fine. Glitch, or policy change at the Beeb?

OK, solution was a weird one. Turns out I hadn't disabled my VPN - hosted in Sweden but endpoint is back here in UK. Egress IP seems to GeoIP to the UK. Why would the BBC disable what is effectively a lower quality stream, but leave the higher version available? Answers on a postcard....

Because not all the BBC CDN's geo-block VPN's in exactly the same manner.

Also, thread closed - see forum rules.
