    Hello, I'm using pure html5 to play a video in my app, but I want to still playing while app is in background mode, there's a way to continue playing video audio in background mode? Because my player always stop when app entering background mode.

    I believe that the Cordova Background mode plugin might provide the required functionality. To add this plugin to your project, download it as a ZIP file from the GitHub repo and import it as a custom plugin. However, if this plugin is imported, the app will be rejected from the Apple App Store. 

    Additionally, for iOS, you could check if Audio Background mode works for you. More information about iOS background execution is available in this article.

    I hope this helps.

    Telerik by Progress

    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
