Subject Media class downloading whole streaming file on iOS before play?
Date Wed, 13 Nov 2013 18:43:18 GMT
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.
