As of now it uses the plugin buffer. Using the main ram would remove the
limitation to be not able to run other plugins.

As for the playback: No, in it's current form it starts with active
playback and it doesn't stop it.
In my proposal you would need to stop the playback (in order to steal
main ram safely). That's something that can be done automatically on
starting though (mpegplayer and doom do it).

I'm not sure what speech has to do with it.
