I cant listen music with my playbook when i want to listen it background. For.example i open a song on youtube and another tab i am surfing the web, song is stopping playing, until i click the youtube tab. Is there any solution for it, because when i am surfing the web i want to listen music background.

Re: Multitasking

I dont know how playbook managed its audio multitasking,

But.. I open music player and play my playlist. Then i open need for speed undercover.


Both of the application sound is playing.



Another try,

Still playing playlist on my music player, and then open video player to play some video.

Music player stopped, video played.


Switch to music player, and video stopped.

Re: Multitasking

Play the music from either your Playlist or from Slacker Radio while you surf the Web.
