----------------------------------------------------------------

Network downloads are sync because of an Apple issue: https://github.com/apache/cordova-ios/blob/2.3.0/CordovaLib/Classes/CDVSound.m#L283

So we synchronously download the media file first. See the File Transfer API to see async
download use.

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug

>    Affects Versions: 1.9.0

> When calling myMedia.play() with an external Media file, the app fully freezes until
the file can be played back.
> Steps to reproduce:
> var media = new Media(url, success, error);
> media.play(); // Browser freezes.
> It would be great if this could be changed so the browser does not freeze. It would make
it easier for the developer to display a loading indicator or similar to the user for visual
feedback.
