One fairly significant bug I’ve found that’s apparent in most browsers:

- audio (and video) http request aren’t sent the referrer header.

So if someone decides to start hotlinking your content – which can be rather large with audio and video, there’s no way to control your bandwidth use.

I’m not against sharing content, but I’ve been caught out where a massive web site starting linking to my videos and took my server down.
