Thanks for that and sorry about my late reply.
The playlist URL I'm trying to connect to is:
I can add it and it will play, but come back a day or two later and i get an authorization error - it's a 24 x 7 radio stream so it's not that it's expired.

In order to get 128/320kbps quality, you will need to connect a VPN. I have tried persisting without a VPN but the result is the same :( I just have to keep re-adding the stream, or visiting a website that
