Hi Jason,

I am not 100% sure this causes your issue, but it might.  MP3 encoded audio needs to be decoded before play, and depending on the way its encoded. Variable bitrate versus Constant bitrate that might cause issues with MP3.  Also i do know going to an exact time is tough, because time in HTML5 audio is notoriously inprecise. I might have some solutions for you, because i encountered this before and got that fixed for that project. Gonna mock up a sample for that…
