Buffering problem when listening to radio

I get about a solid minute of listening enjoyment, before it just buffers again. I am using 2.91. Is there some setting I am missing? Or something I need to do? This happens to all stations.

I am on a company LAN, so I am not sure the upload download. It happens with all bitrates used for the radio.

Winamp -> Ctrl+P -> Plug-ins -> Input -> Nullsoft MPEG (*stuff*) (double click this guy) -> Streaming tab -> uncheck "Enable SHOUTcast title support"

Talk to your network admins.

"Hey..I am trying to listen to internet radio and suck away bandwidth from your network. The problem is, your network sucks and it rebuffers all the time. Could you help me?"

Testing downstream speed...
Downloaded 786432 bytes in 7040ms (872 kbps)
Testing upstream speed...
Uploaded 153336 bytes in 2023ms (592 kbps)

And the admins here are spread across miles of campus... So hunting the right one down would be near impossible. If I did find one, then no worries. i might even muster some saliva and spat on em..

*chuckle*

You could try increasing the buffer setting in winamp to accomodate for overhead network troubles.

Make your streaming data buffer something like 500KB and your prebuffer somewhere around 75%?

hmmm acronding to the speed test they have quite a decent connection

probably a t1

mind u, u may be trying to listen at peak times when that connection is being pants out by everyone.

so maybe the station u were listening to was having problems, or that connection had so many people using it that it was running slow when u tried to listen
