Background music playing


May 25, 2010
Hi all,

My question is : on the HTC Desire, is it possible to listen music with the default player, while doing something else like browsing the web ?
Because when I'm under the music player app, listening to something, and then I click (or long-click) "home" button, the sound stops.
Also, while i'm listening to a track, if a phone call comes in, the music is paused, but when the call ends, the track position is lost and it starts from the begining...
Is all this normal ?
Thanks a lot.
Tunes continue to play on my Desire in the background. In fact one day I was playing a tune on the default player and then tried to play a tune on Tunewiki (assumed one would stop and the other start) and they both played! One over the top of the other.....pointless but quite cool

My default player stops the playback as soon as I click home button. That is a major oversight for the multitasking promoting Google. I use MortPlayer. Really like it, but as most of other media players this one does not like astro file manager deleting/moving files while it is playing music. And I have class 6 SD card.
