Hi Brendan,

Thanks for your quick reply!

>you can get the not-open-source version free from shoutcast.com.

I'll purloin that today and see if it makes any difference.....

>(that would be 160kbit+).

Bzzzzt - nope, sorry, a 128Kbps stream.  Another experiement for today is 
to go down to say 24Kbps and see if that helps any...

Done that, made no difference I'm afraid.  Took me a long while trawling 
through the mailing list archives to find that one - the search option from 
the mailing list archive page doesn't seem to work at all, even when you 
search for something that you know is in there!!

Harumph.  So how do you do it without involving the combined forces of Nato 
and spending a decade learning how to fight with WinCVS or whatever ????

Thanks again for the help ;-)
