Congrats Michael,

Would you like to share any progress so far, or what/how are you planning to
achieve your goals? Best of luck.

Right now, on my android if I switch from VLC to a web browser, VLC's media
playback stops or it crashes. So, are you working on some new
architecture? My suggestion is to make a playback Service for example,
LibVLCPlaybackService, that runs in the background like in other popular
android media players such as doubletwist, winamp etc. The GUI is just an
Activity that takes data from LibVLCPlayBackService, I think such a design
would make it possible for people to use VLC in background while
multitasking. Let us know if such a design is feasible or what can be other
ways to solve this problem.
