Thanks for the clarification.
Doesn't sound like it should be too difficult to add..
I think logic would be something like -
. add a MinSecondsToBuffer option
. on playback start request set MinBytesToBuffer to MaxBufferSize
. once we know the audio format, bitrate etc - adjust MinBytesToBuffer
Any rough pointers to the bits of code we'd need to hook into greatly
appreciated. Otherwise we'll start digging around .
