    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.

    Yes, you should be able to multi-task while listening to music. I do it all the time. Also your track should fade back up from the point when it was interrupted by the incoming call. Sorry I can't help you to sort it out but I'm sure someone will have an idea. :)

    Sounds unusual for your tracks not to resume where they left off. I am using an HTC Magic and when a call comes in, it pauses then resumes play where it was. The same thing happens if I turn the phone off and back on while listening to music.

    Thanks for your responses, this must be a new "feature" of HTC Desire / Sense... I'll check with astro player if it's better.

    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

    So, to sum up, you are listening to something in the default player, then press the "home" button, and the song keep on playing ?

    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.

    Yes on mine it does, both with the htc music player and third party players.
