View Full Version : listening to winamp radio
26th January 2001, 20:28
I just downloaded winamp yesterday. I tried to listen to the radio which appeared on the home page. The radio station will play for a few seconds and then go off for a few seconds and then come back on and it just keeps playing like that. On the playlist when it stops playing, it says buffing and a certain percentage number until it gets to 100 and the song comes back on. What do I need to do to have the radio station play without stopping every few seconds? Thank You.

you need a betterinternet connection or use a "radio" station that has a lower bit-rate. And don't do other things on-line while playing.

1- The radio station is trying to broadcast at a birate ( sound quality )higher than its bandwidth can handle
Solution: Send the radio station an email telling them to lower their birate and hope they clue in and do it. IF this is the case it doesnt matter what connection anybody uses everyone will have the same problem.
2- Your internet conection is too slow, dial up maybe?
Solution: Try and conect to a radio station that has a lower birate or upgrade to higher internet conection.
