But that's not totally accurate, because audio clips also respect this 
setting. How about simply "Playback in background". That it's a volume 
setting becomes obvious with the actual radio labels. Alternative: 
"Volume of background clips".

I have other suggestions to improve the strings in MediaPlayer's 
settings, but didn't dre to change it without discussion. I'll state 
them here, in case you feel bold enough. :)

"when done" -> "after"
"movies" -> "video"
"sounds" -> "audio"
"by default" -> remove
"Scale controls in full-screen mode" -> "Scale controls in full screen 
mode"
(consistence with menu item.)

Also, I generally prefer to have pop-up menu labels end with ":". 
Having the three setting groups in boxes wouldn't be bad either.
