Hi,

Yes, with the events you may show a waiting indicator. 

But, I take again a look to your sample code. Try changing preload="auto" to preload="none"

I did an app that plays mp3 files (no live) and this help to reduce the time to start.

Remove autobuffer property, is not used anymore.

"autobuffer attribute | autobuffer property

Use the preload element instead. The autobuffer property was initially listed in the W3C spec, but has been dropped."

Diego

Hello,

Could you post the lines of code that calls the play button to start the radio streaming?

I use <audio> tag for the streaming, and javascript audio.play() to play the radio.

<audio autobuffer preload="auto" id="RadioPlayer">
<source src="http://link_streaming/;stream.mp3" type="audio/mp3">
Your browser does not support the audio element.
</audio>
//Button
 <a onclick="radioPlay()" id="btnPlay"><img src="images/btnPlay.png" width="36" height="36"></a>


//Javascript (in other file)
function radioPlay(){
    var audio = document.getElementById("RadioPlayer");
    audio.play();
}

Look for html5 audio tag events, here is some information:

Not much time now for an example, post again if you can't find a solution.

Thank you before, so there is have a event to check the sound of <audio> is out? Because when user click play button, there is have a delay about 15-45 second before sound of radio can hear.
