Subject Re: Media class downloading whole streaming file on iOS before play?
Date Wed, 13 Nov 2013 19:29:43 GMT
Yes, there is a bug that the media download is happening on the main ui
thread.  You should be seeing a native warning message (see
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-4133) about this.

I've not found a bug filed specifically for this yet, so filed here:
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-5378
