Audio Fields Loading VERY Slowly

Question asked by ThomasMorel on Jan 8, 2014

Summary

Audio Fields Loading VERY Slowly

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11

Operating system version

Win7

Description of the issue

I have a view with about 30 fields with two of those fields containing audio.  The two audio fields hold .mp3 files and are usually between 20-50MB in size.  The remaining fields are strictly text.

When I load my view, all the text fields appear instantly, however, the audio fields can take anywhere from 45 seconds to upwards of 8 minutes to load.  The time it takes to load is not consistent. Of course, my first thought was my connection speed but that is consistently in the 25-30Mbps range.

Has anybody else experienced this same thing?  Is there some sort of data integrity or encryption/decryption going on at the server that may be causing this?

Steps to reproduce the problem

Load a new record.  Reloading a previously viewed record, in which the audio finally loaded, loads immediately including the audio since it is now cached client-side.
