    What is your connection? Sometimes a 56k connection can not keep up with the music download. ITs being downloaded while you are listening to it. You can try to download the file first, and then listen, as long as the music is not being played live.

    I do not believe that a diff player would be of any help. When listening to live music, you will sometimes hear cracks or it might cut out. This is not always being caused by a slow connection. This is on the server end also. Sometimes when the internet trafic is high, it might result in break ups and it might have to buffer again.
