hmmm, didn't know there were any WMP plugins that would let you stream.

<p>I might have missed something, but I thought log level only went up to 4.

<p>hmmm, but you're reading in at 48KHz.  I'm guessing that'll result in
slower than realtime playback.  That won't help with latency.

This is a fairly low bitrate mode, approx 24kbps from my testing.  So if
WMP has a big buffer, it might well take awhile to fill it at this rate.
