    Exclamation Problem with Audio Background

    Hey i have a problem with audio background in my Windows 8 Pro (non-preview from DreamSpark, I'm a student).
    When i run e.g. Google Chrome for Metro UI and play Youtube in a tab and I change into "start" menu, desktop oranother app it mutes. Well i know that it's a part of this feature of the Windows 8 but it really angers me when my music video mutes everytime i minimalize web browser. Is there any solution for this problem? Thank you in advance!

    Have you tried to do the same with Desktop Chrome or Desktop IE? I am not sure about the version available in Poland as this might be the N version.

    By the way you location is listed incorrectly.

    Hey. Yes i have tried both Metro and desktop browsers, and it seems it doesn't work for any application which is active on desktop(Same with iTunes). What do You mean the N version?

    The N version is the European version. This might not be in affect until after the official release.

    I'm wondering if you might have a corrupt install. Wouldn't be the first one we've seen. You might try starting from scratch and download the ISO file again, burn it again and reinstall. We have seen many weird problems corrected by doing this. This early in the testing, it is probably worth it.

    In every settings and apps predefinied location was US so i think it might be US version. However i will try to reinstall this. Thank you for your help. By the way does it work in your OS? I mean audio in minimalized desktop?

    I just started a YouTube video from Chillout Room, then minimized my browser. The audio worked fine whether full screen or minimized. I also tried Chrome and that worked fine.
