Comment (by blarson):

 Ah perfect! Thank you so much!  It looks like Chrome is downloading the
 file as fast as possible in the background, while ffplay/my app is just
 streaming it as needed with a small buffer.

 I'm sorry for the confusion I caused mentioning Android.

 I'll see if the webserver can be changed to support this, but it sounds
 like the best bet is for me to try and do what Chrome does and download
 the full file in the background.  I'll also dig in to what ffmpeg does
 with the -i vs -re arguments.

 Your help has been invaluable!  Thank you so much!!
