Buffering mp3 stream really slow / hanging
Buffering the stream  is really slow.
The time for adding the stream is acceptable but not
for resuming with "Continue playback on startup" enabled.
Sometimes it needs more than one minute to start the playback
and meanwhile Audacious cannot be closed safely.
Audacious 3.4 buffers this stream much faster.
Do you have any idea what is the cause for this?
These are the last lines when Audacious is hanging:
output.c:383 [output_set_replaygain_info]: Replay Gain info: output.c:384 [output_set_replaygain_info]: album gain: 1.000000 dB output.c:385 [output_set_replaygain_info]: album peak: 1.000000 output.c:386 [output_set_replaygain_info]: track gain: 1.000000 dB output.c:387 [output_set_replaygain_info]: track peak: 1.000000

Firefox only prompts me to open it in Audacious.

And the saved file is 96 kbps MP3 silence (Audacious, Audacity, and ffplay all agree).

This seems to be related to your location.
With an American proxy, I also hear just silence.
Does this one work for you?
Otherwise could you try adding a URL which plays on your side?
Then enable "Continue playback on startup" and restart Audacious several times.
Buffering gets slower each time, but a manual stop/resume is fast. Really odd.
