On my phone (oneplus one) buffering of audio streams is terrible. I have tried two solutions to allow to change the buffer size:

  1. Patch gstreamer. See
  2. Patch qtmultimedia. See

Using a buffer size of 256000 makes buffering of the qml mediaplayer fast and hickups are gone.

Apologies, you are quite right - this is Shoutcast which is or was part/connected to Winamp, which is where I usually tune into somafm for groovesalad.
I have made a connection that never existed and I should know, I did actually (for a brief period) have my own Shoutcast station (RedDragonRadio) which is of course, created by users of Shoutcast, but SomaFm and Groovesalad will not be found on such channels - sorry for the daft, pointless comment! are totally correct and no, I don;t believe in miracles, but I do believe in making simple mistakes due to not reading and digesting something before commenting, my bad.

It doesn't find my favourite stream, Groove Salad from I've searched as many ways as possible, but nothing from SomaFM shows; groovesalad; GrooveSalad, groove salad, Groove Salad, etc, etc..

You can add your prefered SomaFM-Streams manualy to FlowPlayer. SomaFM is not a part of Shoutcast.

No, it's not a part of shoutcast, but winamp and somafm are intrinsically connected, my connection is unfounded, this I;ve already tried to say, no need to push the point any further.

Does have this stream? Did you try to search there? The app does not perform any miracles it is just using the shoutcast api. See
