Allow media to continue playing while in settings

In iOS Infuse when you tap the gear button to go to the settings the video pause. It would be nice if there was an option too loud video to continue to play while you are in the settings screen. The tvOS version continues to play while you swipe down to change the settings

Could you add an option to keep the video playing while the settings window is opened, this is specifically to adjust the subtitle precisely instead of keep going back to the player to check, and may be add keyboard shortcuts for subs delay instead of having to open the settings window.

Its always bothered me but I’m not sure why on infuse…

  1. Video playback has to stop while accessing the “Advanced Options” to e.g change subs
  2. Video playback stops when switching audio/subs (Not sure if there is a technical limitation) but in say, vlc I usually can switch audio tracks/toggle subs on and off seamlessly without a stutter.

So the suggestion is to just continue playback while accessing settings and/or switching btn different audio/subs. I dont mind missing the 10 seconds of video playback that it takes to access the settings :slight_smile:
