  • You could try using sound = Titanium.Media.createSound({url:the_audio_url,preload:true});

    Then it should be ready when you sound.play() it.

  • Kosso - how about this:
    It says in the docs:
    The Sound object loads the entire media resource in memory before playing.
    As the resource is from a URL, I'd like to stream it but wait until the user has pressed play before it starts playing.

    Can I use the preload:true for Titanium.Media.AudioPlayer ?
