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.

 

Hey @Luke, apparently the browser does support it!

 

Go to this link and hit the play button: http://player.listenlive.co/52371

 

Then shut off the screen.

Can this method (background play - audio only with screen off) be implemented into the Mobile Web Player like you did recently with the Android App?

 

Thanks @Luke

Your link is an audio stream, not video.

Ya I understand that. Is it possible to background play the audio of a Movie, TV Show, Live TV with the Web Player on Mobile with screen off?

So the background play is limited to certain file types, such as MP3 or WAV but not for MKV or MP4?

It looks like the browser will do it for audio but not video.

Oh well. Glad the Android app works. Thanks @Luke

Luke, how can I sideload the beta APKs? Only stable ones can be found on the website

 

APK extractor doesn't seem to work anymore, whenever I try to install a signed and extracted APK it fails

We don't currently have a process for that as they're not published separately.
