Bug: in OS 4.5, media player stops playing when streaming audio and you holster the BB

[ Edited ]
I have loaded OS 4.5 on my Verizon 8130.  When streaming music, for example from http://www.somafm.com, the music shuts off when you holster the BB.  This is very unfriendly!

Holstering device means all the activities will be suspended. I don't think it can be called as bag.

Media player doesn't shut off when holstered and playing MP3 files.  It shouldn't shut off when streaming audio either.  Download the Flycast application - it doesn't shut off when holstered and playing streaming audio.

 

What seems to be happening with Media Player is that its acting as if its streaming video, not audio.  It would make sense for it to shut off when holstered and playing streaming video.

I think somafm is doing a video stream with a video track entirely black. The Blackberry device has no way of knowing that.

No, that's not it.  OS 4.3Media Player doesn't act like this (my wife still has 4.3 on her Pearl).

 

The wma stream won't play on the Pearl; you get an error, "Unsupported media type: audio/x-ms-asx".

I have a similar issue since upgrading to to 4.5 with my vzw 8130.   with 4.3 I was able to stream audio and then have it run in the background to read messages or address book for example all the while the audio was still playing.   Now once I get the audio streaming and back out to the main menu the media player quits.
