Playing in the background. What about the ads?

Hi Guys,

I have built an app and enabled background playback of video for the users and it all works as expected.

I have since added some ads using the provided VAST implementation. The ads also work as expected until the app is running in the background. The background playback stops when an ad is scheduled and needs to play.

Is there a way to allow background playback of ads?

Thanks,
Matt

Perhaps you are experiencing the issue described here => http://playerframework.codeplex.com/discussions/405637

Does playback work if you disable ads?

Hi Paul,

At first I thought it was only the ads, but after some further testing, I have the same issue as the one described in the post you linked to.

I guess we'll just have to sit tight and await until Tim get's a response.

Cheers,
Matt
