birate changes while streaming
check this one out.....
if i set-up the station to broadcast at 56kbps, then i walk away and check on the server later i notice it has switched down to 24kbps. what is happening is a pause (or lowering in volume/output due to the style of a certain song) in the music is causing a disconnect from the winamp DSP (could be the server monitor too) and since it's set to auto-reconnect, it does so, but at 24kbps instead of the initial 56kbps. the funny thing is after i go to the encoder tab to see where the bitrate is set at, it still says 56kbps (stereo) even though it reconnected at 24kbps.....go figure?!?!?!? it's really pissing me off because i can't seem to fight off enough of these little bugs to just relax and feel confident in knowing i'll have a rock-steady stream being broadcasted without any problems.
thanks in advance for any help,
