      Description

      On Android 4.4.3 using the Chromium 33-based webview, HTML5 audio can play audio from a HTTP source, but not local audio in the same package.

      Minimal repro (this zip should be directly uploadable to PhoneGap Build): https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/15217362/webviewaudiotest.zip

      I don't know if this is a Chromium bug or PhoneGap bug, so I'm reporting them both. Link to Chromium report: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=387898

      Impact: using PhoneGap to publish HTML5 games means they cannot play any audio bundled in with the game. The Media plugin works for this, but is non-standard and has a different feature set, making porting harder.
