Control Idle over video (media.playVideo)


My app has some long videos.
We are using the system.setIdleTimer( false ) for our app, but as in Android the application is getting in Suspend mode, and the default media player is active, previous setting (system.setIdleTimer) seems not to work.

Is there a way to achieve that, disabling idle when media.playVideo works?
Maybe a manifest option?
Or a trick pushing a function or option to the media player?

This is crucial for us.

Thank you.
