the correct amount would vary depending on what your http response headers 
look like.

don't read a flat 4096 amount, this will (as Mike said) most likely read in 
part of the vorbis headers, and since your throwing away this 4096 bytes, 
you are throwing away part of the vorbis headers, which are required to be 
sent first in a vorbis stream.

o instead of reading 4096, just read a byte at a time until you get a 
character series "\r\n\r\n"...then you know your at the end of the http 
header and you won't be thowing away vorbis critical data..
