    Usually takes 5 seconds to start streaming. What kind of connection are you on?

    You want to preload 3 over 4MB tracks before the player opens? Do you have an idea of how long that would take for someone on a 56k dial-up connection?

    well, instead of changing them to streaming i put them back on load and they seem to go much quicker and more reliable....i think ill stick with this, it seems the best for now, but i thank you both so much

    Just checked your link with my old 56k dial-up... Took 40 seconds before the player appeared, and then the track (actually a .swf), streams for about 10 seconds of music, and then has a 40 seconds breakup downloading, 10 seconds of music... And so fourth!

    The same will happen to your tracks on the initial download, even if they're streaming, unless you drastictly re-compress those mp3's and in the process penalize those that are on a fast connection, unless you snif out the user's connection and offer 2 set of tracks.

    I guess that is the difficulty in life to satisfy everybody, never mind you got it working somehow, that is what is important.
