    Question Radio skipping

    Anyone have comments on why streaming radio skips (buffers) during the song? I just downloaded Droidlive (ie; Xiialive Lite) and during the song it stops a lot or it says it's buffereing. Can this be fixed or are any of the other radio apps (Pandora,Slacker,etc) any better?

    Help

    The signal coming to the radio in your phone is neither constant nor without error. To prevent constant "hiccups," the stream is "buffered," i.e. coming in ahead of what you're hearing. However, sometimes the interference becomes so severe that the music "catches up" with the signal being downloaded. At that point the play stops until the "buffer" can fill up again.

    Though people often think one app or another does a better job, it's usually signal problems that create the momentary halt to the music player. Switching to another player may seem to help, but that's usually because the signal improves.

    Byte Rate

    If you choose a lower byte rate you won't have the skips in the music. I haven't heard a difference in quality.
