    Youtube/video recording timeout/lock screen

    Hi

    I have set a timer (every 30 sec) on my 9900 to lock my device. When I watch a video on youtube (the mobile version), after 30 sec of no input, the screen locks. Same thing with when I record videos on my bb. After 30 sec with no input, the device locks. I know I can change the timeout for when to lock the device, but I dont want to. Does BlackBerry know about this and is there a workaround for this other than changing the time to lock timer?

    Thanks

    The workaround that I've always used is a "keep screen on" app. I used Advanced OS and LED and one of the features was a "Keep screen on" function that was in my menu. There are several apps that specifically only do a "screen alive" function too. Other than a 3rd party app, I am unaware of any native function or setting that will allow that, unless it's built into the app that you are using.
