Default Video Multitasking

Can this be done on the epic 4g touch? This is one feature that i'm jealous of the s3 for the video multitasking, is there a way we can get it on the epic 4g touch?

I told you before. Just play a movie or video clip and press home key. I did it by accident on my evo design.

I'm on a stock E4GT from Sprint. No it doesn't video multitask like that. If I start a video and then hit the home button, it pauses the video and waits until I return.

When I played a video then hit the home screen button, it switched to the home screen. After a minute when I went to the task manager (by holding down the home button for 2 seconds) and chose videos, it switched back to the video player and the video continued to play from the point where I switched to the home screen.

There's no way to place the video on the desktop and do other things like texting while the video is still playing. When I press the home button is just brings me to the home screen.

Try this. It allows you to have video on screen while doing other things

There is a paid app called stick it that also gives you the video multitasking capabilities. They claim to be the only app to offer it
