HTML 5 Streaming audio from audio tag, after stop/played again- continue not from stream

    Question

  • Hello there :)

    I have a little problem for straming media... well... i add to my app <audio> tag with src= online streaming radio (mp3) and make external controlls and etc with javascript. The problem is... this situation: i open app, everything is ok. Make playing radio. After some time- i click on pause. After 10 minutes click play again - now radio continue from place i left it, not from place in online streaming and after few seconds playing stops. Is there any solution how to restart media file or something, clear the buffer or else.

    I hope you understand me and sorry for my english skills.

    Thank you :)

  • I think i found solution for this... to clear media like that:

        element.src = "about:blank";
        element.load();
    
        element.src = src;
        element.load();

    Where = src; is audio media source (like online radio).

    Thanks anyway.

  • Thanks for Sharing the solution. However, try it with stop() and play().

    To assign a "blank" address will definitely throw a HTML error, which might cause some unknown problem.

    Hope my suggestion can help you.
