>                 Key: CB-9885

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Plugin Media
>         Environment: cordova platform windows
> windows 10 universal app
>            Reporter: Gaven Henry
>   Original Estimate: 1h
>  Remaining Estimate: 1h
> There are specific requirements to play background audio in a windows 10 universal app.
 If they are not met then audio will stop whenever the app is minimized or in the background.
> One of these requirements needs to be set on creation of the media object before the
source is assigned.
> Need to update the create() method for the windows platform to assign msAudioCategory
value so that people CAN enable background audio if they wish.
> This change has no impact on the general use case and audio will continue to behave the
same way it currently does UNLESS the user also meets the other requirements in their particular
app to enable background audio.
> These requirements are:
> register for media controls
> addition to the package.appxmanifest for your app to specifically enable background audio.
> There is some reference material here for the additional requirements:
