Hello Everyone,

I'm having trouble keeping a streaming connection working with GeorgeFM (see below for link) I've tried a Telecom Big Time and TelstraClear connection and the music drops out for 20 seconds then comes back again and it's only started happening in the last few days.

Very annoying, I've been using VLC and Windows Media Player. Both have the same problems.

http://media.georgefm.co.nz/playlist/georgefm128.m3u

I've done a traceroute to 202.49.175.65 which is hosting the music, no problems but it drops off after a few hops and you cannot ping the streaming server.

Tracing route to 202.49.175.65 over a maximum of 30 hops

I'm also on BigTime and am having real difficulty steaming NASA TV. This stream is at 640x480 and looks fantastic, when it works. I've not been able to stream it successfully at home at all!


Cheers,
Joseph

I just tested the GeorgeFM streama nd having same problem on Orcon.

It plays for 20 seconds then stops. About 1 minute later it starts playing again for 20 seconds and then stops completely.

It was working fine for me the other day. Must be a problem with their streaming service.

It's an issue with their shoutcast server... send 'em an email.

Working fine yesterday afternoon as well, looks like they fixed it. Also I did e-mail the studio when it first happened, never got a response.
