    You have yo remember this is not true multitasking. This is a suspended state where the app architecture allows some apps to run in the suspended state.

    To answer your question.. No you can't watch a video until it finishes downloading. The final step to any iTunes purchase is to verify the tag information for the file. This includes title, author, genre etc. It won't show up on the iPod or video app until this info has been downloaded in the final step.

    actually I think it did still continue downloading in the background while I was doing other stuff. I guess I gotta be a little patient.:)
