Buffering Questions

When streaming  files from various websites or radio stations, you may have come across instances where the stream stops for a few seconds (a buffer underrun).   When this happens, the player  must re-buffer, or acquire, more of the stream  from the Internet.   While breaks in Internet access can normally occur, if you notice underruns happening very often, you can configure a player so it buffers more of the stream before playback.  This may cause you to wait a few more seconds before the initial  stream begins, but once the music plays, it is less likely to stop during the broadcast.   If you're doing this at work you may be restricted from being able to make these changes by your IT department - ask one of the friendly ones to help you out.  Here are instructions for common players - if you have a different version you may have to look around but it will similar to these...
