PostiOS help: YouTube on an iPad
by jawafour » Sat Apr 01, 2017 11:34 pm

Hey, folks

Up until just now I've been able to open Safari on my iPad, set YouTube open in one tab to play music and browse the web on another tab.

Well, now the music in the YouTube tab pauses whoever I look at the other tab. It never used to do this... am I doing something daft?

Any help much appreciated!

Thanks
jawa

Not sure, it's working for me. A few weeks ago I noticed that it would pause after about ten seconds when I went to another tab but I've just tried it and it's working fine.

Hmmn... it's a weird thing. Always used to work fine but tonight it has just stopped. Searching online, it seems that this may be a common thing as YouTube is trying to get people to pay for YouTube Red, which apparently allows it.

Yeah I've just researched YouTube red and it does talk about being able run in the background on mobile devices. I've just tried mine again and it's still playing in the background.

Thanks for looking, STAR. It definitely seems to be something that YouTube has done; I can stream digital radio stations in a tab with no probs - it's just YT vids that won't play. Ho-hum!

On Android you can use Firefox to play YouTube videos even when the app is in the background while you use a totally different to app or have the screen off.
Is Firefox available on iOS to see if that works?

The actual YouTube app supports "picture in picture" so you should be able to use that. Once the video is playing there is a button no it you can tap and it should "pop out" the video and it will show the vid in the bottom right f the screen while you do other stuff.

Edit: Turns out Google haven't implement this on there stuff so it doesn't do this. Sorry.
