To stream your mp3s on OS X you need a lower the MP3 bit rate. I have a cable modem with 128k upload I was having the same problem streaming for only 5 seconds with MP3s at 128 kbps + then it would cut out. I found that if I used an mp3 ripped at 96kbps or lower it would stream without problems you do lose quality but I can now listen to my entire mp3 collection from where ever.

I had the max throughput set at 56 kbps
Max number of connections at 2

And streamed through port 80,554 and 8000

Using Quicktime and winamp

Rtsp://<<ipnumber>>:<<port number>>/<<playlistname>>

Winamp works better on port 80 using http://
