No Preloading 

Preloading is a technique where an audio player automatically starts downloading the audio content (or a chunk of it) without any user interaction. Dynamo doesn’t offer web or mobile players for your podcast, so you’re probably using the ones provided by your hosting platform and you should refer to them to understand if autoplay is in place and if it can be disabled. In case you’re going to create your own customized player, you must avoid preloading to ensure compliance and metrics accuracy for your podcast. This will also reduce unnecessary bandwidth usage. For a web-based audio player, you should use the preload=”none” attribute of the html5 audio tag.
