I listen to a radio station through MusicBee called "The Rock" (New Zealand) for which I use the stream URLhttps://livestream.mediaworks.nz/radio_origin/rock_128kbps/chunklist.m3u8
I find that approximately every thirty seconds MusicBee briefly cuts out and restarts the stream, this doesn't happen when the station is played through the browser.
The M3U8 file that points to the stream has the following typical contents:
This appears to define three tracks of approximately 10 seconds each. I believe MusicBee is playing these and then reloading the stream to get information about the next three tracks.
Examining the stream playing in the browser using the developer tools in Chrome leads me to believe that is preloading the next playlist when the last track of the existing playlist loads. This leads to a seamless playback experience.
Would it be possible to make MusicBee copy the behaviour of the in browser player?
I'm running MusicBee version 3.3.7491. This issue has been present for as long as I can remember.
