Bandwidth should be OK, the servers are hosted in fast data centers... so 
must be one of the other points.

Fixed.. Thanks

Fixed (I think - related to (1))

Dont know what is causing this, but may be caused by (1), I am letting 
libogg do all of the page packing anyway.

> The other issue it looks like it has is the coarse muxing problem.
I have changed the MUXing part to flush pages after either 30 packets 
queued, or more than 1 seconds worth of data (on either stream).

After compiling my new encoder the stream sounds and looks perfect now. 
(Playing for about 15 minutes now without a single audio break) - Plays 
better in other players too!

Thanks for your input Zen, it really helped! Would you mind doing another 
"compatability test" on my stream? (http://www.visonair.tv/)  (btw: The 
illiminable codec pack is fantastic!)
