[ubuntu-mono] [Bug 677555] Re: banshee unable to stream audio for more than a few minutes

Still present in Banshee 2.2.1 running ubuntu 11.10.  At home BBC Radio
2 will play for up to an hour or so before stopping with buffering
stuck. At my office it will stop within 15 minutes. Usually play can be
restarted by simply double clicking on the station or using the
start/stop buttons. Same behaviour with BBC Radio 3 except play time is
less (higher bit rate and thus more susceptible to network quality).

  banshee unable to stream audio for more than a few minutes

Status in “banshee” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: banshee

  I like to listen to various one hour long music podcasts from dance
  tunes radio.  From their RSS feed I get the URL to a podcast and then
  in banshee Open Location and paste it in.  Banshee will start playing
  the podcast but after anywhere from one to twenty minutes will
  suddenly stop.  The screen will show it buffering and stuck, for
  example right now at 9%.  The play pause button also changes to the
  green play icon.  If I use wget against the podcast then it downloads
  just fine.  An example feed is http://blog.dance-

  (No I don't want to do RSS feed subscription within banshee - I just
  want it to play URLs reliably.)
