mp3 very slow seeking on SMB/CIFS

  • I try to seek within an mp3 file when it is on my network, mounted with SMB, and it is VERY SLOW to seek within the file. (it is fast seeking when I download it to my ipad) Seeking = jumping forward/backward 20 mins.

    It is very fast to seek within m4a files when on SMB share, but not mp3.

    Here is an mp3 file

    It is very fast to seek within this file using free VLC player on IOS. (over SMB)

    My files are on linux/samba network.

    Therefore it is a bug in nplayer's seeking on SMB within MP3 files.
