Android very slow buffering for Shoutcast / Icecast

If you are using HTML5 Radio Player i.e. jplayer or HTML5 audio tag to player Radio Icecast / Shoutcast Live Stream on Android Mobiles and it takes much time (20-25 seconds) to load in player.

OMG if most users think Radio Player is not working at all on mobile browser.

You can try Radio Stream with low bitrate like 64kbps or 56kbps

Also you need to play with your Radio Shoutcast / Icecast configuration settings…


Normally Radio Stream with bitrate 128kbps takes 4-5s on WiFi and 7-8s on 3G Internet.
