#44 mpg321 lags when playing icecream stream


I used mpg123 before, but now I am trying to switch to mpg321. When I play internet radio using icecream, e.g. this:

icecream --stdout http://live.slovakradio.sk:8000/Slovensko_128.mp3 | mpg321 -

After 20s or so, it start randomly lagging (there is approximately 1 lag per 10s, sometimes it's hard to hear it, the playback simply skip to another place). But it plays completely normal with mpg123 so I thing this must be some bug in mpg321. I tryed also --sync option of icecream but it was worse then. I also tried this:

icecream --stdout http://live.slovakradio.sk:8000/Slovensko_128.mp3 | (sleep 10; mpg321 -)

But it didn't help either. It happen with another radios too. I tested it on Ubuntu 8.04 and 10.04, result is the same. Thanks for any advice.

mpg321 version 0.2.10
