This can be caused by a lot of things, your internet, router, dns etc.

Have you tried with a different software?

Are you testing with one radio only?

Support - (fb2k) / Problem streaming radio
Last post by Zazie -
After many times streaming with Foobar2000 (v.1.3.16) stop working (same problem with checking updating)! I can only restart the pc and reload Windows 7 (64 bit).  :'(
How can I solve this problem?

OK, thanks, I'll sort it out.

@ThaCrip thanks for understanding and replying so nicely.

-5 because IIRC there is about 30MB per GB of difference but the converting speed is much higher. I am testing with an i7 k processor, for what is worth converting with -8 would be much slower on lower processors.

I'll test again right now to compare the speed.

-8: Total encoding time: 0:09.969, 313.99x realtime - 231MB
-6: Total encoding time: 0:06.375, 491.01x realtime - 232MB
-5: Total encoding time: 0:04.250, 736.52x realtime - 233MB

I just want to mention that the reqiured "hack" to refresh the PSS panel works well with local media files, but not with internet radio streams where there is a noticable pause in the playback.
That's a well known limitation of PSS and not exactly what the focus of this experiment was. Until there's another component that allows the same flexibility as PSS without it's warts we're sort of stuck with what we have at hand. If a user can live with the drawbacks then this simple script permits PSS switching from anywhere in the UI as long as the jscript panel doing the switching is visible. I even rolled this into my heavily modified 'track info + seekbar + buttons' control bar.

faac-1.29.8 was buggy, 1.29.8.2 is much better:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/faac/files/faac-src/faac-1.29/faac-1.29.8.2-win64.zip/download

Noticeable changes since 1.29.7.8:
- implemented short windows grouping
- rewritten mid/side coding (makes very audible difference at lower bitrates)

Absolutely, something like that is necessary.
I thought I took sufficient action to prevent this from ever happening again, but I didn't know better....

correct me if i am wrong, but ain't the only drawback to 8 over 5 is initial encoding time?
You are right. And encoding is done only once. I use -8 because there is no other reason not to.

(Except some very odd issues - wasn't there a Squeezebox generation ages ago, that was buggy with -8? It doesn't happen with stock players which use the reference decoder.)
