[gst-devel] Streaming MP3 Problem

Hello.  I am running GStreamer 0.6.1 on RedHat Linux 8.0.  I have used
APT and installed the gstreamer-universe so I could just have everything
ready at my fingertips.  I am both using commandline and writing code.
now I am trying to get one computer to stream to another, however it is not
working like it should.  On the client computer, I have run this in the
command line: "gst-launch udpsrc ! mad ! osssink".  The client runs the
pipeline and sits and waits.  I then go to the server and run
"gst-launch filesrc location=a.mp3 ! udpsink host=" (or server
and client second, makes no difference in results).  The server begins
streaming and I here the song beginning to play on the client.  All of a
sudden (after about 1-2 seconds) the server pipeline stops and the song
playing cuts off with a sound as if you were pulling a vinyl off a
phonograph while it was playing.  The same thing happens when I enter
this into C code, compile, and run the program.  I then tried running this
line on the server "gst-launch filesrc location=a.mp3 ! mp3parse ! udpsink
host=" and the same thing happens again (the song plays
on the client for about a half a second longer).

This is wgat the server returns:

[root at localhost test]# gst-launch filesrc location=a.mp3 ! mp3parse !
udpsink host=

Has anyone had this problem? What is it that I am doing wrong?  Thanks in
