We're trying to play a notification sound at a regular interval (every 500ms) 
in a loop.

It should sound like "bing.bing.bing." and not like 
"bing......bing..bing...bing" if you know what I mean ;)

- Cycle count doesn't work for mp3 files. No problem, just use WAV.
- The playback does not happen at regular intervals. -> not usable in this 

Our solution so far has been to have a scheduled executor which calls 
audioclip.play() every 500 ms. This creates a new thread every time (see stack 
trace below) and we don't like this approach.

Are there any experts for NativeMediaPlayer on this mailing list?

Kind regards,
