Hi people,
I've got several audio tags on the same page, so I don't preload any.
While I understand the speed of loading will be server and connection dependant... it's so SLOW to load!
Several seconds before the music starts.
Too slow for a professional site.
I've compressed the audio files down to about 750k for 90 seconds duration, using MP3 and OGG.
I don't use Javascript to add the audio tags after page load, it's in the html.
Any more compression and the quality is terrible.

I fear this isn't usable on a professional level.

Does anyone have any suggestions on this?

Faster with flash?

Any compression tips? Good apps / settings?
