    Description

      Reported on the mailing list by Nick Burka:

      "I’ve been implementing a simple Media playback app. It looks something like:

      console.log(’start');
      mediaPlayer = new Media(
      uri_to_my_mp3_file,
      mediaSuccess,
      mediaError,
      mediaStatus);

      console.log(’end’);
      mediaPlayer.play();

      When the JavaScript executes, it takes 20+ seconds between the ‘start’ and ‘end’ logs. Then when I seekTo() on the playing file, it’s virtually instantaneous. I presume that the Media class is downloading the entire file on instantiation?

      A few other people seem to have the same problem:

      Any help would be much appreciated."
