Someone who does a lot of audio work would know more than I do about it, but it used to be that
files could be saved in either "normal" mode or "streaming" mode. I didn't make the files I
used in a particular app, but they all streamed and playback started immediately while the rest
loaded in the background. If things haven't changed, maybe the file format is the culprit?

These are people in a university in China, where it seems the wireless network gets choked up with simultaneous users doing things. When classes are over, all works well. Also using a cellular connection works normally (but data there is very expensive $$$ to use). Their Wifi seems to be underpowered. These are files typically 30K to 100K.
