I'm trying to broadcast a radio from a linux server that is coming from 
a windows machine using m3w.

it's working very well for Winamp and linux mplayer as client - but 
while using Windows Media Player it's buffering for about 8 minutes then 
it start to work well w/ a delay of 8 minutes !!

I've this set up :

        <!-- same as burst-on-connect, but this allows for being more
             specific on how much to burst. Most people won't need to
             change from the default 64k. Applies to all mountpoints  -->

should I change any parameter here ??
