XiiaLive keeps stopping when playing shoutcast/icecast stream

sa4720k 7 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 5 years ago 3

I'm trying to run an iceCast stream from my server, but XiiaLive plays for only a few seconds (depending on how long I set the buffer size to) and then stops and rebuffers.  The stream is not constant.  This is very annoying specially with the sound effects turned on.  

I've tried multiple configurations of the stream buffers, but none of them work.  I purchased the full version specifically because it would allow me to change the buffer sizes, but changing them doesn't seem to have any affect.  Is there a way to fix this problem.  Btw, my music is streaming at 64kbs.

It has been a while since this issue was posted. We have changed a lot of things since then on our streaming engine. If you are still having any issues please let us know.

Couple questions for you:
1. What device do you have and what version of Android is it running.
2. Is you stream AAC format?
3. Does this issue happen with all streams or just yours?

Hi Jona,

 

My device is a Droid X running Android 2.3.4 on a Verizon network with unlimited data plan.  My stream is MP3, and no, the regular shoutcast streams seem to work much better.

 

Thanks.

Hi,
almost same exact thing happens whenever I try to play Kalman Radio stream from this link http://195.222.33.217:8081/listen.pls it usually stop as soon as it reaches 50 minutes and sometimes it will go a bit longer. I am using Droid X as well and same version 2.3.4 on a Verizon Wireless network with unlimited data plan.
However, another radio that I like to listen is working just fine and it's link is: http://195.222.33.217:8026/listen.pls

Any information will be appreciated.
