Play iPhone music videos in the background
Authored by: sharakan on Sep 23, '08 09:08:24PM

This hint only works when I use the lock button to pause the video. It doesn't work when I want to do something else with the phone while listening to the audio portion of a music video (as mentioned in the second part of the hint). That's because pressing the home button during a video does _not_ pause the video, but completely stops it. If I then double click the home key to bring up the iPod controls and press play, a completely different tune starts playing!

This is with iPhone firmware 2.1.

Wrong button. You first press the "screen lock" button to pause the music (not the home button), then press the screen lock button again to bring the screen back up.

Then double-press the home button to get the iPod controls onscreen.

Oh darn it - sorry, sharakan, I had managed to read your entire comment except the first sentence. I apologise, and feel pretty stupid.
