    I'd been using iTunes for streaming radio happily until the last few days, when the streams started rebuffering every few seconds, making them practically unplayable.

    I have a recent iMac, 4GB of RAM and a broadband connection.

    What buffer size in iTunes are you using? The larger the buffer, the better.

    You can find this under iTunes Preferences under the Advanced tab.

    Thanks. I tried the biggest buffer, but still no joy. Windows Media stream slightly better.

    I wonder if your ISP is doing some work on your line...

    Could be. Australia's Telstra isn't the most efficient ISP around...
