Listening to 128k radio on 128k connection

I listen to the station, which broadcasts in mp3 128kbps, and I have 128k connection. How to make Winamp play it smoothly without skipping? I tried to incerase streaming buffer from 64 to 1024, it helped, but it still skips after 5-10 minutes. The radio also have WMA 128k stream. Which format is better against skipping? And aren't there a web service, that compresses the streams in realtime?

Get a better internet connection or listen to a lower bitrate stream

I know that. It's impossible to get faster inet and they got no lower bitrate.

Well, as long as you continue to connect at 128k, there's not much you can do, other than to try and find a lower bitrate stream (as Sawg indicated above).

If not, you'll continue to experience buffering and breaks in the stream.

Don't email or PM me concerning Winamp. Instead, either start a NEW TOPIC or post a REPLY in the appropriate thread in these forums. This will also benefit others who may have a similar question or problem. But before posting, please first Search the forums and read all FAQs and all Sticky threads.
