Minimize Sound Buffering Sound

What’s the best way to minimize the amount of time it takes for a sound imported via .mp3 to start? Using a certain hosting site or file size?

It’s not something of a priority, but sometimes it’ll take minutes and it’s awkward having a level with no sound that long, haha :smiley:

Thanks in advance for any advice.

How big is this sound file? The larger it is, the longer it will take to start. Even a pretty large sound file should start playing within a few seconds, not minutes.
