ummm no.   128kbps is 128kbps.  Either you can cope with it or you can't.
MP3 has no mechanisms for changing bitrate on the fly and as a consequence,
servers don't provide this as a feature.  If you want a stream that you can
listen to over a modem, then youll have to stream at an appropriate rate
(24 kbps for 33.6 modems, for example).

Sorry, can't help with this one.  For starters, I hardly ever use winamp
anymore and secondly, I'm blind and can't see the lamp in winamp so I've no
idea what it indicates.
