I don't know much about technical things but 165 KB/s download isn't much. Some time ago I read that the minimum bandwidth required for the stream is 384 KB/s.
But on the other hand, you said the video works great, it's just the sound that doesn't work. :? Can you see the stream without any buffering at all?
