Buffering problems
« on: February 09, 2007, 09:49:19 AM »
For some reason when I am here at work the buffer for winamp (and even WMP now) goes into seizures. It loads to 100%, then drops out and retries after playing a millisecond of the music. I can't find any settings for limiting bandwidth or buffer times/sizes. We're on optical lines here, so the total bandwidth is not a problem. This was not an issue several months ago but for some reason now it is. I don't know what changed but can someone help me figure out why the hell I can't listen to awesome music at work?

Is there a new firewall or router that's causing problems, either with timing or with restricting the traffic for your music?
