Media Player stops after screen locks

Hi, Media Player on my bold 9790 closed after the screen is locked. I have activated the screen lock after 60 sec. and apparently media player also closes with the screen lock. How can this be solved?

Re: Media Player stops after screen locks

Hi ashwinb,


Welcome to the Support Community!

If the BlackBerry® smartphone has a low security timeout setting, it may lock during video or audio playback.  This may cause the video or audio playback to stop. This feature is by design. As a workaround, you may want to increase the lockout time when playing media files. This article provides more information.
