Can the Commuter be used to provide audio for video, such as watching a movie on a tablet?

Yes. However, the quality of the experience—specifically, synchronization between audio and video—can be influenced by the implementation of Bluetooth on the device, and the best performance will occur when wireless interference is minimized by keeping the Commuter and the device in close proximity, less than 6 ft (2 m), with no objects between them. Use of a Wi-Fi® network in the area may also affect performance.
