[Icecast] Burst-size Setting

So it is more of just trying to improve the listener experience than a problem. So when users go to our app or website and hit play, there's like a 6 seconds delay before the audio starts playing. I was trying to figure out how to cut down on that delay and I thought playing with burst-size would help.

Generally speaking I would not recommend to change the values unless you have a specific problem. It is way more easy to hurt your self with those values than to fix anything.

That said, the interesting question here is: What is your actual problem?
