That depends on what you mean by ``i'm doing
something that's using the network really intense''.
If the net is busy already, mp3 will be affected.
It's unlikely the server is a problem: a colleague
pointed out that his experience is that the normal
place to bottleneck is on the client: the format is
highly compressed, easy to ship around and
cpu-intensive to play.
Try running it and looking to see if you get 3%
or more collisions on the 'net . (netstat -i
while the slowdowns are occurring, vs normal)
