Does this happen at the beginning, or always after 30 seconds, or what?
Are you using shout?  Are these VBR files?  Do you have use_metadata
turned on in the icecast config?


> I use liveice/icecast on a linux box redhat 6 (2.2.18) and my problem is that the streamed audio gets chopped -on the LAN!!! The audio is encoded in 32kbps and I have a 512kbps/512kbps connection, so it should be enough to stream several connections at once. It sounds just like when a cd gets dirty or scracthed on the back. Anyway, it seems to go away if you can endure the terrible sound for a while, or you restart winamp. F. ex. suddenly it would work on 1 client and then I try another client which then has the same problem. Irritating. What can I do to make it work from the beginning?
