Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Unwanted initial delay

Hehe, if you do something non-normal, it's always a good idea to tell
this. :)

Yes, the current release of gst-plugins reads a whole ogg file before
starting playback. This is optimized away in current cvs and should be
quite a bit faster.

So if that's really the problem, it shouldn't happen with mp3s, right?
