Here in holland we also say playback when we mean a mimed performance

In Indian films the term "playback singer" refers not to the actors / actresses who mime on film but to the original singers.

Hasn't answered your question but a useful reference.

As far as i know, playback is a proper English word... but If I'm wrong, i'm sure someone soon will correct me.

But it does make you think about words and their uses in other countries!
