Can I listen to (soundtracks, music) from Playbook browser and switching tabs at the same time!!

[ Edited ]

Dear Community 

 

Hey, I have a Blackberry Tablet: Playbook and I'm happy with it till I found this:

 

1- I noticed that when you are switching between Tabs while playing a song, the song will stop, this is recommended but I'd rather keep it on, unless I'm playing soundtracks from well know sites. Example: Youtube, music channels!!.


2- it's hard to communicate in a matter of video calling with other phones and computers. example: we don't have Skype yet!!.

 

3- we need Arabic font and language as well for middle east users ASAP.

 

Loyal customer

Music, video or any application will continue to play if you change the Application Behavior setting.

 

Settings>General>Application Behavior

Change it to Showcase.

but if you are listening to music in one tab and open another tab the music does stop. We need a showcase mode for the browser or the ability to open more then one browser. Fingers crossed for the feb update...

I don't know if they have a Arabic language app or not but you may search it by yourself.

I was facing the same problem...until I came across this forum...you'll be glad to know...yes...there's a way.

But you'll have to listen to the genre of your choice on radio...this link has all genres...from dub to even classic rock,check it out Smiley Happy

Here is what I have done step by step. Note, I'm using Shoutcast's website.

1) Go to Free Internet Radio - SHOUTcast Radio - Thousands of Free Online Radio Stations

2) Click on the Help button from the menu.

3) Click the first button under "How would you like to listen to Shoutcast Radio Stations". Dont click the second button or the third button.

4) Next, under "What is your internet connection speed?", I selected "Show All"

5) Click "Save Settings"

6) From the left hand side of the page, select the category of radio station you want to listen to - this will provide a list of radio stations available.

7) Press the Play button on the radio station your want.

8) This will open the radio station in a new tab. You will see the radio station playing at the upper left hand corner of the screen.

9) Press the tab button from the top of the Blackberry menu to go back to the original tab - the one you used to select the radio station.

10) This will cause the radio station to stop playing BUT if you reclick the radio station you wanted to play, the radio station will begin playing in the previous tab.

11) You can now browse to whateve website you want to look at and the radio keeps playing.
