I'm trying to "be a DJ" from my Pentium 100 (133 w/ overclock), 56k USR modem and SB PCI128. Yes, I know its old, so don't be a jerk.
When I start the stream up to the shoutcast server, after about 8-10 seconds its starts to get really choppy and the "bytes sent" slows to a crawl. The modem lights are barely on. Running system monitor, the CPU is almost totally idle! WinAMP will continue like this for a while and then stop responding completely. All other applications running react just fine, its only WinAMP that is frozen.
I'm running the most recent winamp, netshow, and dsp plugins. I also tried winamp 2.5c w/ dsp 1.5.0b2 with exactly the same results. All on 100% clean winamp installations.
I've tried enabling & disabling advanced mode in DSP (using linerec:// when disabled), same problem. I removed all low-level drivers (ie totalrecorder) from my machine too.
I get this problem even if I broadcast at the absolute lowest level (1 kbps).
What the hell is going on??? I swear I had this working a couple of years ago. Would a crappy ISP receive rate cause this behaviour?
Thanks for your help
