Playing from an HTTP stream sounds like it's skipping
bits (the stream plays out too quickly and it sounds
jerky). The same file played locally works properly.
It's not a problem with HTTP delay - the same problem
occurs when the file is played from a webserver
on the same network. Haven't really gotten into the
code enough to debug it further, but as an incentive for
someone else to, a patch for HTTP proxy server support
is included in the next bug report. ;-)
This problem occurs both with the most recent release
(0.2.10) and with a freshly checked out CVS copy.
