[icecast] Error: Client not receiving data fast enough

Hmmm, I am using Winamp for my client, will upgrade it, but it works for
other shoutcast/icecast streams.  There has to be something buggered up in
my config somewhere.  It sounds as if Ices is sending data too quickly to
icecast(?), will blow it away and re-complie it and see what happens.
Thanks for the help so far.

yeah, essentialmix.ca is directly related to the Essential mix broadcasts
off Radio1,  I am running an FTP server with all the 2001, most of
2000 and some 1999 essential mixes.  I am tired of trying to find them
online, so I figured I would setup a site :)

The idea with the icecast was to continuously stream all the mixes that
are on the ftp site.
