When it hits the time limit it will pause for a few seconds and then 
continue . It should not pause indefinitely. Is it not continuing  on 
its own? I don't know why Play would go to the beginning again.

The code around this is a compromise. It is not a true real-time 
streaming process, but the playback of a file that keeps increasing.  
The code to handle it is a bit fragile. I can take a look at it again.
