Default Abandonia Frequency issue

I finished LOOM on Steam recently, and I decided I wanted to try listening to the audio drama that was originally included with the game. I found it on Abandonia Frequency, but it appears that something is wrong with the file or else it's just too large a file for the player to handle correctly. When I try to play it, my CPU and load meters shoot up to maximum, and Firefox stops responding. Force-quitting Firefox returns my CPU and load to normal levels.

I doubt Abandonia Frequency has worked properly for the last year or so. As for the audio drama, get it here.

You mean the track actually called "Audio Drama" with speech on it? I can play it all right. I would first of all try with a different browser from Firefox.

OK, it seems to work fine in Google Chrome. CPU jumps to 100% for a little while, but by the end of the intro music, it goes back down to 76%.

That's hardly fine. But sorry I told you wrong, it happens in my computer, and in Opera also, only I didn't notice it because sine I have 4 cores it only goes up to 25%.

Yes it must be because of the size, that track is 28 MB!

OK, maybe not fine, but acceptable for a single-core Pentium 4. Maybe that track should be split into sections to make it a bit more manageable.

We would if we could.
But the track is already lossy-encoded with no trace of the source material in sight; we have no cuesheet to divide it into separate tracks (assuming there WERE any to begin with); even if we had that, splitting would neccessitate transcoding the damn thing again, causing the compression artifacts of two successive lossy encodes to compound with each other.

It's also the player the site uses, this behaviour is a flaw.
