Often when I try to play a stream, I get a short delay and then the message:
Error Loading Media
No suitable demux plugin. This often means that the file format is not supported.
http://stillstream.com:8000/ [or whichever stream]
After one or more repeated attempts, the stream will play. I am using libxine 1.1.1-2 from Debian testing.
That's a known xine-lib issue.
What is the issue exactly?
Is there anything that can be done to fix this?
Maybe amarok could try to e.g. "restart the stream" 3 times, before failing completely - if this is a known, wrong error with libxine.

Wait until xinelib 1.2 release; they're trying to fix this issue.
