There seems to be a problem with connections sometimes. If this happens
to you for no apparent reason - auplay works fine, but an app run under my
lib (libaudiooss) fails with the error below:

are no multi-second pauses in output. Then you need to repeat the
I've dug around in the NAS source, and tried adjusting the timeout I found

Could anyone explain the whys of this to me? Jon? Other gurus?
This is over a tunnelled ssh connection to a PC at university... 10
megabit link, so throughput should not be the problem, though perhaps lag
may be? - ssh takes 20% cpu here decrypting and forwarding the 44.1 khz
16-bit stereo NAS stream. With compression, that goes up to 25% on this
end, and from 5->25% on the server end, which is twice as powerful
...now listening to Blind Guardian - Tokyo Tales - Majesty.mp3 via
libaudiooss, NAS & the little workaround... :-)
