The file:// mode also rate-limits the 'recording' to allow
more in-depth testing and demo-ing. You can have a 1GB 'demo' file
but if you only play 3 seconds, it doesn't try to copy 1GB, it only
copies ~3 seconds worth. The file:// mode also loops, so if you
play that same 1GB file for 3hours, it will loop back to the
beginning of the input file keep copying data.
