JW Flash Player - Stream Shoutcast Radio - Radio pauses/breaks up according to many users.

I setup the jw flash player and embedded it in an html page. We use a shoutcast server streamed by Spacial Audio. In the beginning it seemed to work great. But the users started complaining of skips or stops. A simple reload of the page fixes that. Also it seems to fall behind the live stream over a time.

The page the player is used on is: http://www.radioherzclub.com/live/jwplayer/player.html

Thanks for your help!

The code seems fine to me. I don't understand why people are having issues like, pauses, disruptions in the music, or after a few hours it stops playing and needs to be refreshed. The buffer is set to 10 sec.

you can't control their own network traffic, even with a 10 second buffer...  nor can you control whether or not they are having hardware issues...

a computer can only handle some much at one time...

test on an old crappy PC for a bit...  see what happens...

Thats a good idea. We have a fast internet connection. i will have to try at someone else's place.

Is 10 secs enough? or should it be more or less? Does it even make a difference with a live stream?

Thanks!

since this is audio, I would think it is enough buffer... but like i said, you cannot control the quality of thier connection, and unless your service is not giving all that it can, then there is nothing you can do for your customers, but to recommend that they contact their ISP and see if they can improve their connection quality.
