Video stops playing when phone locks

I'm having a problem that just showed itself to me in the last week. I don't know what would have changed to start causing this.

I use an app to keep my phone unlocked when it's on trusted WiFi networks (home and work, for instance). Everything works fine when in that situation. When I'm in the car and I play a video podcast, it will stop playing after ~1 minute. I believe this is the time when my phone is set to lock. I don't have any problems when playing audio podcasts, just video. Any ideas?

It's on Eric's to do list (See Issue - - Transparently switch between playing video and playing video as audio when the screen is locked and unlocked.
