Streaming Frustrations

I've been given this site by a overseas friend
http://www.digitallyimported.net for listening to streams of Dance related
music. But for some reasons I cannot stream any of the Windows Media
Player 67Kbps streams reliably at all.

Has anyone using the Jetstream starter service been able to stream any of
the 64Kbps streams at all without any drops out?

The Trance at 64k went just fine on WMP 6.4 running on Linux via WINE.

I'm on TC cable.

FWIW I'm on Jetstrean Starter with Xtra as my ISP and I can stream all those
Windows Media 64k streams fine, even at 5pm

What is good?

I think it's pretty crappy!

I generally use Shoutcast myself.

For that, I've used JetAudio (check it out - quite a nice
player and broadcaster) - supports more formats than any other
player (including vid) that I've ever seen.

I rarely use the DI mirror on Paradise - even though I'm cable
etc and the traffic doesn't count - bit tranced out you might
say.
