You're welcome.

Perhaps Dave can add that to the FAQ?

I am pleased to mention that my new iTunes 6.1 is allowing me to monitor ATC without any interruptions.  In fact, since I have Real Audio and iTunes, I can pull up 2 feeds at once.  

By the way, it's nice that I can listen to what I think is the Peterborough (East  sector freq) online, hear her hand off to Simco 127.0 sector and actually hear the Simco controller 10 seconds later.  Now I know the voice between the two sectors  Cheesy

I'll see if I can find out some info about the problem originally described (replaying a cache/buffer of the stream after disconnect)


After listening all day to a feed using Windows Media Player version 10 with the REPEAT option enabled, I can tell you that the bug of the disconnect, followed by an immediate replay of the cache/buffer *still* exists and is very effin' annoying.

For some reason, the latest version of WinAmp doesn't fare much better, as it keeps rebuffering the entire feed and disconnecting often.

As much as I didn't want to load yet another media player, I am going to look at iTunes.    Sad

Make sure you have the playlist closed or it won't work. Oh and turn shuffle off too.

I assume you are referring to iTunes?  If so, I have the feed working through iTunes, but it also does periodically disconnect and require a manual restart of the feed.  Restarting the feed does not result in the program pulling from the buffer, as WMP did.  

My experience of the disconnect when using iTunes conflicts with another user's report in this thread.

Winamp works great for me with the repeat option enabled.  I've tested it by yanking the network cable out of the back of my machine, then replugging it.  Winamp reconnects automatically and doesn't repeat anything already played or buffered.

I listen while at work, where I'm behind a proxy and a couple firewalls, and a small pipe.  I get disconnects all the time.  Never had a problem with Winamp reconnecting properly.

Do you have SQRSoft's Advanced Crossfade plug-in installed in your version of WinAmp?

I am beginning to suspect that this plug-in, which I have installed, causes problems for streaming audio such as our ATC feeds.

I just installed that, I'll let you know how it goes.  It passed the 'yoink the cable' test.

After further testing, it does appear that that plugin is causing some weirdness.  It gets into endless buffering loops after a disconnect.

Thanks, Biff, for taking the time to perform some detailed testing.   I figured that the rebuffering problem had to be due to something unique to my WinAmp settings, given that this problem was not reported elsewhere.  

Of course, I want the best of both worlds (use their crossfader for music, but disable it for streaming media) so I will test tomorrow if unchecking the various crossfade options within the plug-in clears up the problem with the streaming feed.
