View Full Version : Choppy audio streaming

December 9th, 2009, 06:09 AM
I have ubuntu NBR 9.10 installed on an Acer Aspire One, and have tried streaming shoutcast radio stations with Amarok, XMMS, and VLC... only to be disappointed when they start to play choppy. Winamp on Windows plays the streams just fine, and it's the last piece I'd like to have on my ubuntu to say goodbye to windows.

Local mp3 files play fine, and video streaming (YouTube) and video playback (with VLC) are fine.

Is this a common issue?
What can I test and change to address it?

This seemed to be a transient problem with either my internet connection or the two radio stations I was trying. I'm currently using Amarok on Ubuntu NBR 9.10 and streaming works like a charm :)

Thanks Ubuntu!
