Video pre-buffer / song change

Dear @musicullum ,

Am I right about that VL2 does a massive pre-buffer on video file at song change? In my experience, when put a 3 min. video with 550MB, song change seems to be slower then use a lower quality render of the same content. Shall I keep this in mind or this is a side effect of something else maybe?

It does preload more, and that involves decoding which is pretty much the heaviest tasks of all, but greatly depends on the compression format. It may help to re-format videos to an easier decodable one.
Will check if preload can be reduced or user adjusted.
