      I'm almost positive you can get this exact feature if you just use Chrome. Google added a power saving feature to Chrome a while back (Chrome 57 I think) called "Optimize background video playback". It Disables video tracks when the video is played in the background (but continues to play the audio) to optimize performance, and its in Chrome for Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS, Android. It's turned on by default so you don't have to do anything to enable it.

        I would love to have this feature, but I don't see it ever happening. Why? Licensing hell and having to get permission from the movie studios Even if they did say yes they would def charge amazon more in licensing fees to allow for this to happen. Plus they would probably be scared of piracy in some stupid way, even though recording a live stream of someone else watching a movie and talking over it would be the dumbest way to get a poor copy of a movie, but movie studios are not that bright when it comes to technology.

        As for Amazon original content, shows and movies they produce and own the rights to themselves (which they are investing into heavily to compete more with netflix originals) that seems much more doable, but not movie from studios like MGM, Sony, Disney etc etc.

            Agreed, and I don't even own a Mac. Just no reason not to do it how steam dose, where If the game is available for Windows and OS X you get both versions.
