Hello, I have been using winamp for quite a while now and I seem to have met a problem I am unable to deal with. When I try to connect to a certain station on shoutcast radio in winamp, it displays the regular "connecting" "buffer XX%" (0 to 100) and o and also of course "ICY 200 OK". with this station, after doing that it begins playing as usual. But, after 2 seconds or so, it begins stopping every quarter a second writing as if its refreshing its buffer - but the buffer is like 2 seconds long and it refreshes up to 4 times per second or even more I can only hear the song completely ripped. any idea as to why this might happen?

Upgraded to the newest version - I even tried different versions of Winamp and it doesn't help - Winamp is such a great player I'm not gonna give up on it I'll fight it till Winamp and Me Win!

Ok, problem solved - there are 2 ways:
1. Install winamp V2.91 which doesn't do this problem at all.
2. I checked out the web radio's website and they had two kinds of streams: one regular, one "firewalled" and the firewalled one works perfectly even on the newest version of Winamp.
