Windows 7: Streaming music stops by itself. Not even at desk. Ghost in my house??

24 Jan 2015   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit (SP1)
Streaming music stops by itself. Not even at desk. Ghost in my house??

FM radio sucks with how they always play the same 15 songs over and over all day so the past week I have went to sleep listening to .FM - Your 24/7 Mainline of Streaming Metal Radio - Metal Injection

After a few hours it starts getting choppy and then during the night something happens where it just stops playing completely and then I wake up to dead silence instead of streaming music.

The above station is played in a Chrome browser.

When this started stopping overnight I switched to Heavy Metal & Hard Rock Radio News Interviews Reviews Podcasts Video iPhone Android iHardRadio
and that plays with VLC. Hard radio doesn't stop completely but after a few hours of play it starts getting choppy as well. VLC is up to date and I have 8GB of RAM

SO when I play streaming radio on browser it just stops completely. In VLC, every 2 mins or so playback will stop for about a second or 2 and resume.

Does anyone else have the problem with extended play of streaming radio or Are streaming radio stations deliberately trying to piss me off behind the scenes??

Perhaps your ISP is throttling that type of traffic. I'm trying the site out atm, nice music on here.

streaming movies skips/stops every time under Windows 7
Almost every time I watch iPlayer or a streaming movie site, the movie just stutters and keeps buffering, for about half a second. It repeates this thing every 10-30 seconds! I tried the Microsoft drivers, and I have downloaded the newest Marvell drivers for my network card, but nothing changed....
