Description Adam Drew 2012-03-19 09:22:41 PDT
Webkit (and thus Safari) always display "Loading..." in the audio controls when using HTML5 <audio> tags and preload is set to none. On Webkit and Safari the controls will display "Loading..." forever even though nothing is loading. On Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Mobile Safari on iOS the controls are displayed with no "Loading..." message. On Safari and the Webkit nightly however it always displays "Loading..."

Tested on:
Safari Version 5.1.4 (7534.54.16)
Webkit r111148 19 March 2012

Observed behavior:
"Loading..." displayed forever on audio controls when using preload="none"

Expected behavior:
No "Loading..." message when preload="none"

How Reproducible:
100%, just use some code like this:

<audio preload="none" autobuffer="" controls type="audio/mp3" src="somesong.mp3"/>
