TVlc now includes continous background updates to fix playback problems you might expierence.
If you find the screen off audio player is not working for certain media items any longer please try to:
- Close TVlc by using the back button and wait for the Topbar icon to disappear (~3 seconds)
- Use Android process manager (Settings -> Running Applications) and force all TVlc processes to end.
- Restart TVlc and give it a minute to do the background update.
This works good enough for me for now. I hope I can find the time to implement this in a less technical way this year.
