Buffer on pause
« on: 16 Nov '03 - 22:58 »
When I listen to internet playlists as shoutcast and such, I tend to pause the stream for a while. Though I know the stream is live and keeps progressing while I don't listen, could it be an option to buffer the stream to disk in the background while on pause? The buffering size should be customizable of course.

If this can't be done, then the current buffer size of 2.5 seconds should be increased to at least one song's length of ~4 minutes. Why are the current buffer so low?
