I stream @ 320Kbps. I found the default settings not large enough for 
some players further afield or mobile so I put this in for 10 seconds 
buffer, 5 seconds burst:


Because I use Win7 as a server, and the burst doesn't work very well in 
this scenario, I put this under listen-sockets:


It's quite a large size buffer but I don't get any drop outs now 
@320kbps via a web based player or VLC over a mobile network here.
