Thanks

No, but this shouldn't be a problem if you make a separate playlist just for the 10 instances of this station.

Another thought: a playlist can contain other playlists, so you could make the 10-stream playlist a sub-playlist of the master radio playlist that you use to select a radio station.

MinimStreamer is stopping the stream because it has attempted to write data to the socket connection to the player and the player hasn't read this data from the socket connection within 2 seconds.

This 2-second timeout was added a long time ago to solve some other issues. It works OK when the network stream is a continuous flow of bytes but it can cause problems when the network stream consists of HLS packets.

It should be possible for me to implement a solution but there is no immediate fix or workaround that I can provide. The only workaround at present would be for the player to use a larger buffer so that it can read the data from the socket connection before MinimStreamer triggers its 2-second timeout.

The Connection: close or Connection: keep-alive setting is not relevant to this issue.

There is a change in MinimStreamer 0.5.22 to fix this timeout problem when sending audio data to the renderer. The change disables live stream sharing and removes the 2-second timeout.

I hope to enable live stream sharing again at some point in the future but this will require major rework and is not likely to happen in the short to medium term.
