Agreed. This shows the problem is all over, not player/architecture dependent. Communication/protocol could still be the culprit. That is why I mentioned in my earlier post some strange "cannot connect to server" messages that flash for less than a second, which seem like a false-negative since

No need to do that, I think you can force the server to do FLAC-FLAC transcoding, there's a thread on it somewhere. I'm still not convinced that's it. I've had issues with FLAC encoding in the past and it caused skipping and stuttering, nothing like the OP observes. --- learn more about iPeng,
