[FFmpeg-user] ffplay struggling with this station!

I did try without that buffer flag, but that had no effect. I’m going to try updating ffplay, and see if that helps. 

Also, I’ve noticed that vlc had a 1000 ms “network cache”, and I wonder if that had anything to do with playing that station flawlessly.
