Play video as audio

From the "Episode screen" on the "Feeds tab" or the "Video tab" Long press on the video file>on the dialog box, press "Play video as audio" - Eric has request issue on his to do list for a future update of the app - 0000998: Ability to configure globally or a feed to always play video as audio - http://mantis.doggcatcher.com/view.php?id=998

Behavior of 'Play video as audio'

When I play audio podcasts, they will continue playing if I turn off the screen. This is useful for listening while exercising or walking (with the phone in my pocket). However, if I try this with 'Play video as audio', the podcast stops. The touch screen is still active, so putting the phone into my pocket causes the episode to stop -- or leads to other intended actions such as switching to another video.

Is there a configuration setting somewhere that would fix this, so the video-as-audio episodes can be listened to while I'm moving around? Any ideas are most welcome. Thanks.

Does that same thing happens

Does that same thing happens (audio pauses when scree goes off) for normal audio files? If not, then there might be a bug in the rom your using. The android media player should keep the device awake when audio is being played back.

Playing just the audio of a video podcast

In answer to your question, nope, this doesn't happen for normal audio files. It's just an issue for playing the audio of video files -- when the screen goes off, the audio pauses. My audio player is stock Android 5.1, Lollipop.

Playback Issue

I can't reproduce the problem, but try enabling "Off but awake - for devices that go to sleep" (In the DC Navigation menu>Settings>User Interface) press "Screen on when playing" and change the setting
