My ShoutCast Stream is Skipping. Why?

ShoutCast skipping can often occur under two conditions:

1. Your computer is maxing out its resources and the encoder can not keep up with the music. Quit all unnecessary programs. The only other solution is to increase the amount of RAM or the CPU power of your computer.

2. There is another WinAmp plug-in conflicting with the DSP. This can often happen with the NullSoft Crossfader plug-in.
Try disabling all plug-ins except for the DSP.
