    All video players stop playing when switching to home screen, sometimes i want to listen to the video without watching.

    Not possible. Music can do that, but not videos.

    Seawhale--your most recent post was just deleted. It was the same question as this one. Please do not do this since it makes it difficult for members to help and/or follow along when there are multiple posts of the same thing. It's also against forum rules!!

    Thanks,

    I know nPlayer, playing back audio will run in the background, not sure about video playback though.

    VLC is back, will do that if enabled in the preferences, and seems to work fine.

    Addendum: VLC is still a little buggy. Sometimes there's no sound at the start of a clip; pause-and-resume usually brings the sound back.
