oops the last was in HTML and I know alot of you won't answer html email

How come the song data shows up faster with ogg when with mp3.

I ask this because the people who are using icecast to stream police 
scanners also made a system to send realtime updates to what channel people 
are listening to. With Ogg the title shows up about .5 of a second before 
the talking starts but with mp3 it's about 1-2 seconds after the talking 

Is there anyway to speed up the text on mp3 or are we just stuck with it?
