[Icecast-dev] Question about buffering with icecast protocol

I’ve seen that shoutCAST sends data much faster than real time when you
connect (for a while I assume, otherwise you’d be travelling to the
future:). That’s useful for fast buffering.


With icecast I don’t get that behavior, stream downloads at real time. Is
there a way to buffer data faster than real time? Maybe a “seek” feature? I
need that because I need to allocate a special large buffer for an app.
