I have a small MP3 player on my website to play my friend's band music. There are 8 mp3 files that are all approx 1-3 mb in size.

Problem is, that the hosting service I am using is very slow. If I stream the music, it plays broken.

If I load them as wanted, their initial load sometimes takes like 5 mins.

I was wondering if I could first thing on my site, start loading each of the mp3's into a sound object. Like start the loading before even my preloader, so that maybe some of them will load before the user even gets to using them.

Would loading 8 mp3's into 8 sound objects be unreasonable? Would it take too much bandwidth? I'm not sure how that all works.

You can checkout what I am using at my link below and try the load time on the music.
