Music Plays Intermittently In Edge Web Browser

Problem Description
As mentioned by a few others, there seems to be an issue with music consistently playing in the Edge web browser (Note: I am running Windows 10 Pro x64 with the November Threshold 2 update). The Space Blaster demo was mentioned in another thread, so I used it for my testing (see below for how to replicate the problem).

Space Blaster Demo

Steps to Reproduce Bug
This bug seems to be intermittent, so the easiest way that I found to replicate it is to start Construct 2 and run the Space Blaster demo. If the music plays, then press "F5" (which will reload the game). I have found that after a few times of pressing "F5" the game will start with the music not playing.

Observed Result
The music will intermittently play. As an additional observation, I have noticed that if you move the music files to the sound folder, then the problem seems to go away.

Affected Browsers
  • Microsoft Edge

Operating System and Service Pack
Windows 10 Pro x64 with the November Threshold 2 update (all updates have been installed)

Construct 2 Version ID
Construct 2 Beta Release r218

Pretty sure this is a bug in Edge, since no other browsers are affected and it even works in Edge the first few times, suggesting our code is working fine.

I filed a bug with Microsoft here:

Closing this report, please follow that issue for developments.
