    Is there any app that lets you run videos without leaving the screen on? When you want to sleep your iPod with music running, the iPod lets you. However, you can not keep the sound running during a video during sleep. Is there any app or is it even possible to turn off the video output of a video while keeping the audio running? It's kind of a difficult and unusual thing to explain, but I hope someone can understand what I'm getting at. Thanks.

    I don't think its possible
    why would you want to put it in sleep mode while playing a video?

    Prob so you could just listen to the audio part of it.

    But if you really wanted the audio part of it, you could just prob get a video editor and seperate the audio out of it. Then just listen to that.

    well...

    there is an app available called Insomnia that allows you to run apps on your ipod while it is in sleep mode (when the screen is off); I have never really tried to play videos with this app, but there is a good chance it will work! For example, i was able to remain connected to the internet and logged into aim when in sleep mode; also, i could hear the beep sound whenever a new im was sent; this probably means that you will be able to hear videos...

    Hope it works for ya!!!

    no insomnia keeps wifi connection alive in sleep mode, so internet-based apps can continue during sleep.

    if you are always going to only listen to the audio then its probably easier to just separate the audio from the video and put it in the musicplayer.app
