           Summary: Needs more cache when playing radio streams
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: totem-gstreamer
        AssignedTo: seb128 at ubuntu.com

>From time to time I experience that totem-gstreamer runs out of cache when
playing internet radio streams. However, that is nowhere to specify in the
application. The player repeatedly stops playing, refills the cache and plays a
little. The GUI even becomes somewhat unresponsive.

An example: (smoothjazz.com)

I can play the above with e.g. MPlayer without any problem. I noticed that
MPlayer has a default cache of 312 KB.

Would it be possible for Totem to automatically increase the cache if it runs
out of cache?! Even better, perhaps in time before it runs out of cache?!

If totem is to become the default audio player and things should Just Work then
this might be a thing to care about.
