    Some radio streams not playing on Boom

    Set up a couple of radio streams as favourites on my Boom. Everything worked fine. Suddenly some of the streams stop working.
    The streams start up, show the logo, speed, current track and file format, ticks on about ten seconds, then they stop.
    Checked the settings and lo and behold, I wasn't logged in on mysqueezebox.com.
    Logged in and tried again. Same behaviour.
    Any hints?

    Give the URL of a problem stream so others can test.

    Other online streams/stations play fine? Only a select few will not play?

    One is FIP radio on Radiotime, the others three 3WK streams (mp2, 128 kb/s) on Radiotime. FIP stops on 128 kb/s and renegotiates to 32 kb/s but stops again. No sound on either stream.
    I tried 3WK on Shoutcast, same behaviour.
    Swedish P1, P2,P3 on 192 kb/s streams well (AAC).
    They work fine on Touch and Squeezelite.

    Boom cannot play AAC streams by itself (connected to MySB.com). It will play AAC if it is connected to LMS server on your computer.

    It is connected to an LMS server on a NAS. And the 3WK format is MP3 128 kb/s CBR.
