Just a little update - it seems to be a problem in general - not
specifically related to the Shoutcast plugin

Ie this url for Virgin Radio shows the problem and there is an attached
playlist file for this
too

http://64.236.34.97:80/stream/1031

Although this plays almost perfectly in WinAMP I have a slight niggle now
that there is a slight one second periodic glitch there too - noticeable
more as a 1 sec modulation on music. However it is vastly different to the
SliMP3 version where spoken words are not intelligable even. This couldn't
be anything introduced by an ISP could it - eg some form of transparent
proxy thing ??

Hi Kevin,

I've just tried this and also have a playback problem with Virgin Radio. I
am using 5.1.3 on a Linux server. Listening on Winamp it does seem that the
stream has a periodic glitch. It plays slightly worse in softsqueeze than
wimamp, and worse still on the Squeezebox.

I have reported this problem to Virgin Radio via the website. May be you
should do the same?

Regards,
Richard
