Default Video player that doesn't stop playing when turning screen off:

I have downloaded some music videos. So the other day I went for a run and wanted to listen to them with my earbuds plugged in. When I hit the power button to turn display off, the video stops playing. Are there any video player apps that will continue running in the background when turning the display off?

Why not just download music? This would be a battery drainer and wouldn't be a big want but I'm sure it's possible... Just turn on a wake lock or something?
