    Hey guys was wondering can the ipad 2 with iOS5 play videos while looking at other tabs? I know its a weird question but I do it with my macbook all the time, and was just wondering if the ipad can do it yet? If I am not clear, what I am asking is... If you have a tab open with a video, can you switch to another tab and will the video continue to play in the first tab?

    I just tried it with YouTube and it does not work. The video pauses as soon as I switch tabs.

    After switching tabs, open the multitasking bar, swipe left, and hit play. Music continues playing! Same goes for the YouTube app. Even works after locking the device: Hit the home button twice, and hit play.
