That is fine the buffer situation is understood. I do not
wish to listen to a twin computer simulcast and am happy
with just one. However it happened that my friend was
listening to the station I have been endeavoring to get
running for the past three days so we drew a comparison.
PS I will attempt to run rythmbox tomorrow

I just opened firefox and did
to the link Peter sent me. I copied the link into the
browser and "Voila" it played. My friend was at a
windows computer playing the same stream as I but his
was playing 20/30 seconds ahead of my stream for some
reason???????? Any helpful comments appreciated.
Different applications have different levels of buffering,
which in turn delays the stream from live by however
large the buffer is. A larger buffer will deal with
network issues (packet loss, jitter etc) better, but will
give a larger absolute delay from the "live" feed.
If you actually care, you can try tweaking the buffer
settings (I don't know where you'd look though, sorry).
Of course, if you're ever in a situation where you can
hear both instances of it, why not just turn one off and
only listen to the other one? ;)
