Windows 7 Computer IE11 Browser - html5 audio initial play delayed by about 30 seconds RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an application for a local community chorus that provides access to a number of mp3 files for practice purposes. The web site uses sql, php, javascript and css.  I'm using html5 <audio> commands to play the audio files without plugins.  It works as desired in Google Chrome and Firefox but has a problem in IE11 (Version 11.0.9600.19155). In IE11, there is a delay of approximately 30 seconds during the first attempt to access and play an audio file.  The controls appear as desired but the application just sits there for about 30 seconds before playing the audio file.  All subsequent attempts to access any audio file starts immediately.  This delay is particularly troublesome for me and problematic for my users.  Can anyone shed light on potential causes?
