Is ezstream definitely re-encoding?  The reason why I ask is that if it is, 
players should just see it as one continuous stream and therefore shouldn't 
know that you're at the beginning of a new file.

If not, perhaps files are not encoded using the same settings etc and some 
players are choking on it.
