I've got a HTTP stream installed on our server with mpd which streams OGG over HTTP.

If I connect with Banshee to this station the buffer is always at 0.0% and infrequently a little bit of the music gets skipped. (like 1/10th of a second)

However, when the song switches, there's a lot more skipping going on or Banshee even loses the stream.

Here's an image of the buffering in Banshee:

Buffering: 0.0%

If I use different streams (I've only tried it with M3U over HTTP streams.), the buffer fills up correctly.

Who is responsible that Banshee doesn't buffer my stream and how could I make it do this?

I have the same problem with an IceCast2 server. – Craig Trader Sep 12 '11 at 0:13
