Make Clip Previews NOT pause when clicking on another window#815

Sometimes i want to quickly watch a clip. I open medal, click the clip to watch, and tab back to my other window (game, or web browser) on a second monitor. When I am in preview mode (i.e. not EDITOR), the clip pauses.

This forces me to open the editor, which I do not want to do.

From what I can tell, this is no longer an issue on the latest versions of Medal.

Surprisingly, most people requested the opposite. STOP playing clips if you click on another window. This is mostly because videos on Medal are short, so it’d just loop forever. It also uses resources to play a video, so if you go back to your game we want Medal to use the smallest amount of resources possible

Maybe make an option for it? I think users would be big fans of most options being toggle-able.

For example, I make a clip of WoW. I have WoW open on one monitor, and medal open on the other. I want to watch my clip on monitor 2 while still playing on monitor 1. When I made this suggestion, it was not possible to do so.

@Ian the more options, the more overwhelming it can be. But I appreciate the example you shared of WoW. I’ll think about how to handle it
