The other benefit of writing a streaming player correctly is, no memory leaks. 90% of MP3 flash streaming applications will eventually crash when they've used up all your systems memory (this may not be the case now, but it was certainly true 2 or 3 years ago)

Note: to play AAC streams as per the link given above requires more than just the correctly written flash application. The server also needs to have a socket policy server granting flash permission to read the stream.

Is it just me or are shoutcast users getting dumber?
