If you played an audio or video file with Browse and leave the activity open you will not be able to use any other activity that plays sound or video (e.g. Record, Memorize) since the sound device is already in use and unlike other activities like Memorize the sound device is not released when the activity is not in focus.

Effect: In Record the live display will be black. Once you close Browse and switch back to Record, the Record activity will work like expected again.

I tested this on XO 1.75 12.1.0 build 20 with Browse 140 and Record 96.

  1. Open Browse
  2. Go to and .mp3 file
  3. Open Record

I can see the image of the webcam while the .mp3 coming from Browse is still playing. I can take pictures and I can record some audio but when I switch to Browse again and then again to Record, the audio stops and I can't have both working at the same time anymore. When I have focus on Record I can take pictures and so, but the audio is not playing and when I have focus on Browse the audio continues playing.
