I want to play the stream of an Instreamer with Windows Media Player, but it does not work

Windows Media Player can decode VBR MP3 streams as generated by the Instreamer or the older Instreamer100, but in recent versions it does not calculate the buffering correctly. This is *not* a problem on the Barix side, it has been proven to be a problem with WMP. There is a simple workaround: when WMP starts with "buffering", press the play button a second time and the stream will start playing. On the newer Barix Instreamer you can also setup the MPEG Bitrate Mode = CBR, this works better with Windows Media player.
