Skips, and I can't find the answer anywhere

My winamp3 skips like crazy when I stream from shoutcast
I have high speed cable and regularly approach a 1meg download speed
I have played with the buffers in every way
I have read hundreds of posts as I think this is a basic problem
Everything works fine except when I am streaming
Please help

First, welcome to the forums, AlienChaser

Next, since you stated that you've read hundreds of posts and have tried every solution to your problem, I will not ask you for system specs (helpful), and I will not waste my time or yours attempting to offer a solution to you that you may have already tried.

Instead, I'll tell you this... there is a Sticky thread at the very top of this forum that is entitled Winamp3 Is Dead, Upgrade To Winamp 5. I think it's very likely that you had never read it, based on the fact that you've posted here for help with Winamp3.

Partial quote from the Sticky...
If you are having any problem with winamp3 whatsoever, we strongly recommend you upgrade to the Winamp 5 release candidate, it will most likely solve any problem you are having.
In addition, I'm also obligated to tell you that Winamp3 is now effectively dead (although Wasabi development "should" continue - maybe not though) and Winamp3 will be removed from Winamp.com very soon. All Winamp3 forums (including this one) will be locked and archived for read-only purposes (legacy support). We will no longer actively support Winamp3.

In any event, I highly recommend that since you are indeed having problems, that you do what was suggested in the Sticky thread I linked to above for you... uninstall Winamp3 then go ahead and download Winamp 5.0. When you download Winamp 5.0, go ahead and download a current release candidate of Winamp 5.0 (until the final public release comes out, at which time you can upgrade). A current release candidate of Winamp 5.0 is linked to in this discussion thread.

If you prefer, you can instead install a somewhat later release candidate of Winamp 5.0 than the one I linked to above. A later release candidate was "leaked" to the public and can be downloaded via the link in the first post in this thread > Winamp 5.0rc10

/edit (Dec 11, 2003)
The LATEST release candidate of Winamp 5.0 is now available. This will "probably" be the last one offered for download in the forums until Winamp Final is officially publicly released.

Get it here > Winamp 5.0rc666 here

Don't email or PM me concerning Winamp. Instead, either start a NEW TOPIC or post a REPLY in the appropriate thread in these forums. This will also benefit others who may have a similar question or problem. But before posting, please first Search the forums and read all FAQs and all Sticky threads.
