I think it would be quite useful to allow playback to continue in the background for videos. This could be a setting. Youtube is a good example on this when you're on a subscription.
Background playback for videos

Well Yes? And also no.
When you're on the go a lot and you're watching something, just because you need to put the phone down temporarily for whatever reason really, having the playback interrupted is simply annoying. Having the playback be played in the background have multiple benefits. Playing a music video for one, listening to video podcasts is another. Maybe I'm the only one that consumes videos without looking at the screen all the time, in that case feel free to ignore the request. But I do think this is something that improves the application, very much the same way youtube improved theirs.
I guess if you somehow allowed thirdparty video players, same result could be achieved allowing someone to use something like mx player.

Only if the browser has an option for it, which i doubt. There's nothing the web app can do to force playback to continue when the screen is off.
Sounds good. Would be awesome to at least get it on the official Android app like Youtube, Tune In, etc! Thanks @Luke
