How do I make my video app run in the background

I'm building a video player app and I want the video to continue in the part where before I remove my headset. 
I want it when I put it back it will go back to the last time before taking it off. 
Any leads on how I will make this happen?

I saw things like OVRManager.runInBackground but there is no runInBackground bool in the OVRManager. 

As well as for the HMDUnmounted, How do I use this?

Thank you any leads will be appreciated.

    As the use case for our products is for all content to pause when the headset is removed except for certain cases that are allowed for downloading in the background, I don't have any useful steps to provide for implementing this behavior.

    I'll leave your post here for feedback and commentary from other developers.
