I kown this, after more than 1 hour the flash player stop to play. But during 1
hour It's possible to listen music, better than hearing nothing.

I'm agree with you it's not an appropriate solution, but it works. So can you
give me the appropriate solution, I will replace my proxy as soon as you
explain me how listener can listen my radio with flash players.

Thank you,
