I'm designing an MP3 player that loads mp3 files both locally and from external servers. It also loads a small text file with song info.

When I export it and run the .swf, it seems to work fine. But when I test it from Flash (using control+enter), it sometimes has big problems loading. Sometimes it never loads the text file, sometimes it loads even local mp3 files _extremely_ slowly...

Has anone else experienced this problem? Why is this? Is there any way around it?
