Chapter 12. Working with Audio Tracks > Having Audio Play When the Movie Isn’t ...

Having Audio Play When the Movie Isn’t in Front

When a movie file is in the background—either because another application is active or because a different QuickTime Player movie window is active—you can decide whether you want to hear the movie’s audio.

To have audio play when a movie is in the background:

1.
In QuickTime Player, choose Edit > Preferences > Player Preferences (Mac OS 9 and Windows; Figure 12.11) or QuickTime Player > Preferences > Player Preferences (Mac OS X).

Figure 12.11. Choose Edit > Preferences > Player Preferences (or QuickTime Player > Preferences > Player Preferences on Mac OS X).


The General Preferences dialog box appears (Figure 12.12).

Figure 12.12. QuickTime Player’s General Preferences dialog box contains options that affect whether audio is heard in movies that are not in the front.


2.
If you want to hear the audio from movies open in QuickTime Player even when another application is active, check the checkbox labeled “Play sound when application is in background.”

3.
If you want to hear multiple movies’ audio simultaneously, make sure that the checkbox labeled “Play sound in front-most player only” is not checked.
