Problems in the network or slow Internet can cause interruptions of the radio stream. If this happens the VLC player repeats the last song part again and again or Winamp log buffer problems.
To avoid this, here are a few tips:
VLC Buffer Change
Launch VLC and open Tools > Preferences or press the keyboard shortcut (Ctrl + P).
At the bottom-left of the settings window click the All bullet to show all settings.
Now scroll down to Stream Output and change the caching to a larger number. It’s 1500 milliseconds by default which is equal to 1.5 seconds. Try 3000 milliseconds.
Winamp Buffer Change
Launch Winamp and open Options > Preferences
Click Input under the Plug-ins section. Select “Nullsoft NSV Decoder v1.0x [in_nsv.dll]” and Click Configure.
Click Streaming and change the Streaming Data Puffer to 300 kb (64 kb is default).
Close then reopen Winamp. This is required in order for the changes to take place.
If you still experience buffering with the settings of 300, please try 600 or 1000 instead. Due to your ISP and network conditions, a higher buffer may be required.
