I have managed to implement a video player that just streams audio in iOS, and this registers as a background audio service, which carries on playing nicely when the phone is locked or app is left in the Background.
I am using the vide player due to the seek limitations in the audio player (I stream from sound cloud)
My question is, is there a way to ensure that the audio/video player keeps playing in Android, when the phone is locked or the app is minimised? I can't find any supporting documentation, and then Simple Android Services help from Titanium doesn't seem relevant. allowBackground : true also does not work for the Video player.
Any thoughts? Or is this a case of telling the client that for now, Android users must keep the app open to listen to the streaming audio.
I couldn't do this, so had to implement a simple audio player with a play button for Android
