On Android, if you're playing a streaming video in a browser and turn off the screen, by default it seems to pause the video. However, from the lock screen, it gives you the option to resume playback and then turn the screen off again.

Is there any way to disable this, so the video keeps playing uninterrupted when you turn off your screen?

I often want to leave the video or audio stream playing in the background while I go walking or workout, and having to constantly re-start playback is really frustrating.
