    Long delay when changing stations

    All of my presets hesitate about 10 seconds before they start to play.

    What do I need to change to reduce this? I think I have buffering set to 3 seconds on both of my radios.

    This started a few months ago.

    LMS 7.7.6

    Only happens on Presets? What about just randomly changing stations in Radio's menu's?

    Lots of variables to consider - some more info always helps with suggestions (what station, what URTLs being used, what type of players ...)
    * Stations with low bitrate will take longer to start compared to station with high bitrates.
    * http vs https can add a delay - many station introduced this within last 6 months.
    * some station do lot of redirection for load balancing or http to https can delay startup
    * is LMS acting as a proxy
    * transcoding
    * network connection - if station are "remote" has an internet connector broken (e.g AAG undersea cable in April)
    .
    .

    : Not just presets. Artwork loads quickly, but audio is delayed... longer delay on some stations

    slartibartfast : All radio stations: WBBM, WCBS, WSB, WBBR, WBEN, Country_108


    bpa :
    1. I'll look into https; if that's the problem I guess there'd be no fix (Checked... not an https issue)
    2. No proxy on LMS. Same problem when connected via mysqueezebox.com, bypassing LMS?
    3. No transcoding I am aware of
    4. No reason to suspect network connection. Streaming TVs are working fine.



    Playing some of the "problem" URLs using VLC on Windows 10 exhibits no such delays.

    If station plays on mysqueezebox - then https is not the issue.

    Can you post a few URLs to test and make sure they are the same in case of different URLs for different regions
