Types of audio sources.

A good rule of thumb is to use stream for music files and static for all short sound effects. Basically, you want to avoid loading large files into memory at once.

The whole audio is decoded.
stream
The audio is decoded in chunks when needed.
Available since LÖVE 11.0
This flag is not supported in earlier versions.
