[mx2004] Non-terminating MP3 dl's with mediaPlayback component


Whenever an MP3 is initiated to stream (well, progressively download really) with the mediaPlayback component, it will contue to dl to the cache until done or the browser is refreshed. The occurs even when the component has been unloaded from an empty movieclip.

This is an issue when folks browse alot of MP3s on the site, because even though it’s inaudible, suddenly there are many files simultaneously dl’ing to their cache.

Cant find a stop stream type of command in the media class, which I think is the only class for the media components. If I were doing real streaming with the Comm Server for example, I could use stopStream.

I’ve basically given up on using the component to deliver MP3s, so any advice at all will be appreciated.
