Skipping Audio...

Hello,

I am having loads of problems with skipping audio and rebuffering streams on the ShoutCast Streaming Service... I have a few streams, but lately most of them are unlistenable because of the skipping.

I have contacted support many times on this issue, but not had a reply... does anyone have any idea why the audio should skip. I don't think its my stream, and believe its the actual ShoutCast Streaming.

Please help - I have lost so many listeners due it it.

Many thanks

You aren't alone

This sounds like the same thing as this thread:

It seems the problem is on shoutcast's side.... their servers are in France and sound like they are overloaded. I've got 3 streams doing the same thing.

I've been streaming using Shoutcast Servers for over a year with no problem until a few weeks ago when most of the streams started to skip. Is there any fix? Nothing has changed my end.

Buffering and Skipping audio

It looks like the servers are insufficient, to fix the problem needed to find a different company.
Shoutcast been Free, of course what can we get.
