I have recently been having problems listening to my local radio stations shoutcast stream, after a few seconds I notice it is skipping pretty much all the time and is not good enough to listen to. I have contacted the providers of the stream who tell me it is working fine and it must be my problem, but I have sucessfully listened to random other streams from Shoutcast.com
Please try listening to http://22.214.171.124:8000/
and tell me if it sounds ok to you. I am on a University lan connection and the stream is 24kbps so bandwidth is not a problem. It also has worked perfectly for months before now.
Hopefully if I can find out whether it is my problem or the servers than I will be able to fix it.
