1) Play a podcast mp3 file with mediaplayer (http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/cdn.twit.tv/audio/sn/sn0588/sn0588.mp3). 2) Open browser and go to site https://www.wired.com (was http://www.zerohedge.com but not as reliable as Wired) 3) Let the page load. Playback should stop at some point when the site is being loaded. If not refresh browser until mediaplayer playback stops

Obviously playback should not stop. Jolla1 Fiskarsinjoki.

Edit: Could this be related to a pop-up add the site plays? I remember hearing that some sites track the user by playing a silent audio stream. Could that cause the Mediaplayer to stop playing?

Edit: For example visiting www.wired.com causes the issue. They use silent audio stream tracking.

Thanks for the report. I can reproduce this on as well. Reported to our developers.
