foobar2000 v1.4: internet radio disconnects 2018-09-16 14:42:07 After upgrading foobar2000 to v1.4 some radio stations started disconnecting every few seconds. It turns out in v1.4 network buffer is gone!Now foobar2000 relies solely on 64 KB socket buffer (on Windows 7, just after foobar2000 restart), which makes foobar2000 unfriendly to burst-on-connect. The lack of buffer is easily observed in Wireshark as TCP ZeroWindow warnings, followed (or not) by RST.This may currently be worked around by:1. increasing foobar2000 output buffer to a very large value (10 seconds or more)2. downgrading to foobar v1.3.20Streams which constantly reconnect on foobar v1.4: (on Windows 7, with default 1 second output buffer)http://power-stream.data.lt:8000/powerhttp://184.108.40.206/zipfm128.mp3http://220.127.116.11/rc128.mp3http://stream.radiorecord.ru:805/rr_128http://stream.radiorecord.ru:8100/rr_aac_64http://18.104.22.168:8010/megapolis-48.aachttp://fm04-icecast.mtg-r.net/fm04_mp3?platform=webhttp://stream.loveradio.ru/12_love_56?type=&UID=5A87D8115A41D087E69935E2B80F69AFhttp://forbes.streams.bassdrive.com:8128/http://19983.live.streamtheworld.com/SLAM_MP3_SCBest conditions to reproduce these disconnects:1. Decrease output buffer to 50 ms2. Use low bitrate streams3. Restart foobar2000 before testing4. Use Windows 7Why network buffer had to be removed? Maybe it was not a bad thing after all? 192 KB is enough for any of the streams listed above, default 256 KB was perfect.
