Thanks for the quick response.
With full screen, a 2 minute .mp4 (not sure on the actual file size) takes about 10 seconds to buffer and start playing. In snapped view, it takes about 2 - 3 minutes. However, I did fail to mention a few things.
- I am currently working in a VM environment (VMware with Windows 8)
- I am also testing within a Simulator, not an actual device.
- And there is a chance that video download traffic is throttled at my current location ( I'll definitely test again once i'm in a more controlled environment)
I'm assuming these could all play a part in the video taking so long in snapped view.
