I have a couple of questions about buffering.

When listening to a live radio stream, if Pre-buffering is set to, say, 10 seconds and a station is selected, I would expect a delay of at least 10 seconds before hearing audio. In fact, I hear audio within a second or two. Why is this?

If the "Buffer length" is set to, say, 40 seconds, when a live stream is selected I would expect a delay of at least 40 seconds for the buffer to be filled before I hear the first audio. As mentioned in my first question, I hear audio within a couple seconds of selecting the station. Why is this?

I read in an earlier post elsewhere on the forum that FFmpeg stream engine, which appears to be the default, does not support buffering. However, that was 10 months ago. Have things changed since then?

Here is a little background about buffering settings I recommend reading.
http://support.xiialive.com/topic/283567-understan...

Something interesting to know is that some stations send a burst of audio data when initially connecting. The audio burst can range up to 60 seconds or higher. This means that a 10 second pre-buffer setting will get filled very quickly. The buffer setting is not used for the initial connection as you will see on the provided link above.

I like to have an interactive chat room where you can hang out with the live DJ and other listeners. A great place to meet like minded people around the world. When there is no live presenter, the Chatroom is still open but not interactive with the radio. I could find two services RumbleTalk and xcat but lack of third party user integration. Maybe someone knows other chat room service?

Having a chat room to talk to the radio station you are listening to is a great idea. However, at the moment we don't have any plans for this feature but hopefully in the future this becomes a reality.
