This question already has an answer here:
Situation: You've downloaded videos as mp4s and put them on your phone. You want to watch them on your phone. Sometimes, you want to turn the screen off while keeping the phone on, put the phone in your pocket, and keep listening to the audio in the video.
I have a samsung galaxy s6. The default video app will stop the audio if I turn off the screen. What android app would be my best bet to solve this?
Budget: Less than 20$ for the app
Why converting videos to mp3 is not the solution to this: first, you cannot watch the video if you've converted it to an mp3. Second, I don't have a batch converter for mp4 to mp3
Why a simple google search for this didn't work: Searching "Android app that will continue playing video audio after turning off screen" will give you links referring to youtube. My question is not about youtube- it is about viewing videos you have downloaded on your phone. https://www.google.com/search?q=Android+app+that+will+continue+playing+video+audio+after+turning+off+screen&oq=Android+app+that+will+continue+playing+video+audio+after+turning+off+screen&aqs=chrome..69i57.168j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
