Apparently, the browser has some built-in smartness for opening pull streams
(the client application starts and controls the stream transfering). This is
uncommon but definitely cool :-)

In this case there is no issue regarding the amount of memory available in
the device. The remote file is not entirely downloaded. The application just
creates a buffer for storing a certain number of packets, which are
discarded as soon as they are combined and displayed as a video frame or
audio sample.
