I use Simplecast and that's where the problem is.
Did some testing and installed Oddcast_v2  DSP for Winamp (on the same 
computer) and everything was fine.
No skips, buffering and everything was on time.
Anyone else had this problem with Simplecast?

I have a good system.
AMD XP2200
1.5gb ram
NT 4 SP6a

It's strange that's for sure.
