Increase Winamp Streaming Data Buffer to AVOID internet radio drop

When listening to Winamp radio sometimes it drops and you have to manually double click to reconnect. However this is not convenient. As far as I know Winamp doesn't have auto reconnect feature but there is one trick to avoid internet radio stream dropping. Try to increase Streaming Data Buffer. Ctrl+P open preferences, go to Plug-Ins Input and find Nullsoft MPEG Audio Decoder.

Click Configure and increase Streaming Data Buffer (for example to 500kb). Another nice feature is Streaming Prebuffer. If you set it to 0%, Winamp will start play radio immediately without prebuffering. This trick will prevent you from silent time gaps.
