>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: cordova-plugin-media
>         Environment: iOS platform within cordova 
>            Reporter: Ashish Mehra
>            Priority: Major
> Using the plugin, cordova-plugin-media, one can stream audio/video media. On the iOS
front, streaming media can take anywhere from 8-10 seconds to start playing, even if the length
of the media is < 10 mins. 
> The culprit here is `automaticallyWaitsToMinimizeStalling` property, that seems to buffer
a more than required amount of the media causing load time delays. In some cases, it actually
downloads the entire media file before starting and on slow internet connections this can
mean load times of > 15 seconds.
> Disabling this property should make iOS media load times to almost instant as it will
only buffer a default/set amount.
