Continue to play audio even while scrolling down past it

Use case or problem

I have transcriptions of nearly all my recorded audio in Obsidian. I put the transcription below the audio. I’d like to be able to listen to the audio as I’m reading and correcting the transcription. Currently, Obsidian cuts out the audio if I scroll too far away from it.

Proposed solution

Allow audio to play as long as we are viewing the note.

Current workaround (optional)

Open the audio in another window to play.

This is a good feature request.

Another workaround is to open the same note twice in a separate pane and pin the pane to a sidebar. Make it small and focus on the audio, then keep writing in the main workspace.


Yeah, just came across this exact issue. The behavior which is common in modern social networking applications is not what I would expect from a desktop application.
