I'm not sure if this is the right place for this (or if
I need to ask the MAD guys) but Is there anyway to get
readahead for this thing, when I try and play mp3s
across my lan they are broken up...?

Maybe there's a common sense way to defeat this but I
can't find it...

Thanks

    Buffering isn't yet supported. When it is, you will be able
    to use the -b size option; this will create a buffer of size
    kilobytes to store read data, and then do output in a
    different process.

    This is on the drawing board for version 0.3.0.

    What would be the best way to implement that?

    I have the need of a command-line application to decode a mp3 streaming, and would be better if it uses only integer math, like mpg321 does. But due to network instabilities, I'm gonna need a buffer (probably a big one =) for sure.
    So, I was thinking about adding buffer support to mpg321. Do you guys have started any work on that or have ideias how it will better to implement that?
