    Flex/Air: mp3 streaming via port 80??

    flexschreiber

      Hi all,

       

      I am experiencing a strange problem with playing mp3-streams in an AIR/Flex-application. I am using the following code to play a webradio stream:

       

                      var s:Sound = new Sound();
                      var req:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://62.75.132.19:80/;Stream.mp3");
                      var context:SoundLoaderContext = new SoundLoaderContext(1000, false);
                      s.load(req, context);
                      s.play();

      When I run this code, the stream starts playing but also does incredibly stutter. If I use Windows Media Player, VLC or even the flash based player from the radio stations' website everything plays fine. But whatever I do, there is massive stutter in my AIR-Application only.

       

      When playing arround with other streams, I noticed that streams using port 8080 or 8000 are playing witout any problems. No stutter at all.

       

      So, in short:

       

      - streams in AIR stutter when coming via port 80

      - other applications (WMP, VLC and even online flash player) are playing without stutter.

       

      Why Air won't???

       

      Thanx in advance for any help!

       

       

      Cheers,
