Hi I want to ask why in Flash player of The Hitz is quality worse then in my player... example in jetAudio is shown bitrate 128kbps (downloading 20~26 KB/s), and in Flash player is bitrate not shown and it downloading only 5~10 KB/s... thanks for answer...

Wow.. how do you check the download speed by jetaudio and 977 flash player? before the new website of 977music, i was using winamp to listen to it, and it's lagging so often, means i cant listen smoothly.. it's always buffering.. and after 977music new website launch and then i use its player to play it, it's so much better than winamp 1000000 times, no buffering disturb at all, is just some time it will buffer (i dont know why suddenly stop for few sec or 30+?) then the music back to smoothly.. and i've compared with winamp the quality is same (maybe i'm wrong) =) then only i decided to use 977's player to listen =) love 977 forever!
Oh come on, in that case, some kind of specially compressed because I can not explain how as this could be the difference .... just the way he measured here using Everest and DU Meter ... I think this is really good radio station too and therefore I just wanted to ask...

I don't 100% understand your question but the Mp3 streams need to be at 128k to sound good.  The flash player usses AACplus technology that allows us to stream at 32k and sound very similiar to a higher bitrate stream.

I listen to .977 The Hitz on my Windows Mobile phone. I currently use the mp3 stream, though would be interested in possibly trying the ACC stream (to reduce buffering, and bandwidth usage), though I am not able to figure out the source. Is this something you would be willing to share?
