mp3 streams on the audio page

Hi gang!

I have mpg123 configured to accept .pls and/or .m3u files that contain an
http address of an mp3 audio stream, so freeamp is on hold at the moment.

Question: On the speakup audio page, I am able to get the link to acb
radio okay, but Kirk's "egoplay"  link is disappointing - I hear a period
of music, then a pause, then music, etcetera, each lasting maybe 200 to
400 milliseconds each - no continuous sounds. What is happening here? My
processor load is quite small when this is going on, so it must be
inadequate modem speed. Buffering mpg123 does not change the behavior. Is
the stuff on the egoplay.pls a greater bandwidth or something?

Regards - Disappointed.
