Request - add preferences for Video Playback behavior to be more like audio playback.

I wish there were settings to allow Video Playback to work as Audio Playback, eg.

Even though I am watching many video podcasts, much of the time I am really listening to them (unless they are showing something I need to look at which is rare) so I would like the following preferences added

1). to auto play the next video rather than just stopping.

2). allowing me to hit the main menu button "minimizing" / "backgrounding" Doggcatcher so that it continues to play the video in the background so that I can continue listening while I check email, send text etc. I can regain the visual image by going back to the DoggCatcher task. Currently hitting the Main Menu Button, stops the video.

3). allow for the Rev/Play/Pause/Fwd buttons on the lock screen so that I have basic Doggcatcher control without unlocking. [So I am working at my desk, and need to get up for a minute, look down and I am at my password screen, hit pause, go where ever, come back and hit play, never typing my password]. We have this behavior for audio, but not video

Great product otherwise. Addition of these preferences would just make it better for me.

Video playback stops when screen goes to sleep mode

On my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 I often listen to video podcasts with the S-cover closed and the phone in my pocket. With Doggcatcher the video playback stops when the the screen goes to sleep, unlike with audio podcasts which keep playing. Is there a way to correct this?

Enable "Screen on when

Enable "Screen on when playing" (In the DC Menu>Settings>User Interface) change from "Never" to "Dim" or "off but awake -for devices that go to sleep"
