Stream High Quality AAC BBC iPlayer Radio and Live Radio to your Squeezebox Part II

This is a follow-up to the post a few days ago. It is now much easier to get those AAC streams on your SqueezeBox.
It is now possible to navigate and play the High quality (up to 192kbps) AAC BBC iPlayer Radio and Live Radio streams on your Squeezebox by mean of an OPML playlist.

Just add the following URL to your favourites in SqueezeCenter and then navigate to the Favourites on the SqueezeBox remote an you will see a three-level menu of Channel -> Programme Name -> Programme for iPlayer Radio. You need to be running get_iplayer PVR Manager v0.24 or later. This has only been tested on Linux and may work on OSX and Windows.

To list all the Live iPlayer Radio channels add this to your SqueezeBox favourites:

Finally, to only show those numbered BBC Radio stations:

Update: Now works on windows except for realaudio mode. Ensure you use flvstreamer v1.8h or later.
