I'm sure this has been brought up before but Just in case it hasn't. I know that everyone has noticed this but I have actually had a fan tell me that the delay made them think the player did not work. Fortunately they gave it the time it needed. This is not the case I'm sure with no telling how many visitors to the site and/or fans accessing tracks from somewhere else.
You always hear that the biggest thing that drives visitors away from a site is long load times so thought I'd inquire about this and ask if this has been addressed by the devs...and if it is something they can improve?
