ofSoundPlayer on Pi3

Hi folks,

I have to make background soundtrack for one of my projects (~20 mp3 files, shuffled) running on Raspberry Pi3. Even in low quality it’s about 15-20 megabytes of data.

The program stacks for 3-10 seconds during loading next track from /bin/data/mp3s/ folder.
By now, I’ve compressed mp3 to 32Kbs CBR, Mono.

What can I do to solve this issue?

Should I load all track into memory on initialising stage or any other solutions?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, are loading the whole file at once or streaming?

The .load function has a flag for that:

For now, I am loading at once, should it be streaming?
