Sweet! Coachella Radio is up.

Is anyone else having a problem that it skips whenever I do anything else on the internet, despite the fact that the whole song is buffered?

yes it skips, probably because the whole song is *not* buffered.

It is buffered though. The red line fills up in the first few second and then internet activity stops while it plays the rest of the song.

right. there's a small buffer. I think.

all i know is that the songs don't show up in temporary internet files.

as far as the skipping some of you are experiencing goes...........

"Multitasking while listening to the player, as it uses more computer processor, can cause pauses. Unfortunately this cannot be fixed, as the makers of Flash acknowledge the issue here, and we have implemented the buffer solution on the player: hi (http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?event=view&id=KC.fca3bb04&extid=fca3bb04&dialogID=61294310&iterationID=1&sessionID=96309e353265c6068484&stateID=1+0+61290909&mode=simple)

The new player buffers the songs, and the Coachella servers are fast, so bandwith is not the issue, and leaves only the user's computer performance issues. "

We are trying to provide the best experience for users.

I'd pay for it.

We don't own these songs, we don't have the rights/permission to sell them or give them to you for your ipod. If we could, we would. I bet you can buy most of them for your ipod on itunes or other sites that sell digital music.

Yes I know I could, but I'd have to hunt them all down individually. It would take effort and the effort's already been done by the people who put the radio together. I'm not arguing or complaining I'm just saying to the Powers That Be that there exists at least one willing customer to shell out for the goods already assembled.
