    Default Videos play when minimized?

    If you minimize a playing video to active frames, will it continue to play like the playbook?

    Default Video question???

    I'm sure that it will be an option to continue playing or pause as it is on the Playbook

    Agreed. The most obvious way to demonstrate multitasking is to have video playing while you do something else. I remember playbook demo videos doing exactly that, to prove that they weren't just faking multi-tasking.

    So yeah, it should work like this on BB10 - stays playing in the frame until you go back to fullscreen.

    Unfortunately it doesn't do that on the Dev Alpha. I think it's for battery conservation. I think RIM should at least make it an option (you don't get that option like you do on the PB).

    But it contunues playing while peeking, right? I remember seeing that in a demo. Also, can you confirm whether the camera app will continue recording video while in an active frame?
    I'm trying to be nicer. If I say something that's not very nice, feel free to remind me

    The video still plays when you are peeking, but i actually want it playing when it is in active frames. I will double check if camera app records video when in active frames (we finally got a more stable camera app for the dev alpha A when the new os drop this week; it was very unstable before).

    BB10 had better be able to do this since this is one of the major selling points for me.

    Agree and would show true multitasking too.
    I wait for the future...to COME back to BlackBerry!
