Currently, loading the tracks block the media element readyState, it will go to
HAVE_METADATA only when the track is loaded. If the track doesn't finish
loading because the connection is intentionally kept open, the video will never
be able to play. I can't see a way to make an exception for the streaming case,
because there's no difference on the HTTP level between streaming and the
network being slow.
