View Full Version : error syncing to mpeg
20th November 2000, 12:50
I am trying to setup Winamp in work to listen to shoutcast radio. I am behind a firewall and I have entered my proxy server and port. But when I click on the radio link it says HTTP 1.0 200 OK so I assume that means it is making the connection, but then it says Error Syncing To Mpeg and stops. So I can't get any music. Can anybody help me? Thanks.

No, nothing to do with the soundcard.
What method are you using to attempt to connect to the SHOUTcast streams? (e.g. clicking on a link, starting from the command line, etc.)
Have you tried multiple different streams? Can you post a link to one or two of them?

i'm clicking on a link. i really want to listen to the 8kbps one which is the first link here as the others will take up too much bandwidth and the sys admin team would beat me about the head if i tried to listen to those streams. but anyway i tried them for this test and i get the same message with all of them. so here are the links. http://22.214.171.124:8008/listen.pls http://126.96.36.199:8000/listen.pls http://radio.trancemission.fm:11530

I am getting the same message on winamp. Tried using other players (Real Player, Sonique etc.)but they all have various players punching through the company firewall, even with the correct proxy and port. Experience tells me that the company has fiqured out a way to stop streaming of internet radio etc.

I have the same problem with all mp3 streams, but I'm not behind a firewall. I just started happening when I upgraded to 2.7.
