Static/stuttering stream
« on: July 11, 2008, 06:24:23 AM »
Hi there,

Im streaming DG through to my work office, slight issue with the stream though in that it sounds quite stuttery, sometimes even gets a strange 0.5second screetch too (kind of like when you have a bad satalite signal to your TV and the picture and sound break up, if you know what i mean)

ive tried playing around with winamps settings but dont seem to be getting anywhere, anyone had this issue before or know how to resolve it?

Have you tried connecting to a different server? If you use the "Listen" link on the front page to connect, you should have other servers listed in your playlist manager in WinAMP. You can double click on one of them to change to another relay. Some are in Europe, some are in the US, so you might have better luck with one than another.

Let me know if that helps.

The other thing could be insufficient bandwidth at your office, or your network manager is doing some rate shaping. You have to be able to sustain a consistent 128kbps (so more like 140-150kbps realistically) to stream DG cleanly.
