I was getting sick and tired of going on YouTube through Safari.

But it's still got ads? Bleh, I'll stick with Jasmine. I'm not paying Verizon for the bandwidth Google uses to serve me ads I don't want anyways.

Plus Jasmine can play in the background

Finally, this is awesome

I'm still a bit undecided if this is better than the original apple youtube app or not though.

Correct. And that is going to be apple's downfall. Running applications, not apps, in the back ground is extremely important to me and battery life is not an issue especially on a tablet. I am really thinking about giving nexus tablet a shot. If I don't like it, I will just use it as a picture frame. If I do, the ipad will become my picture frame

Airplay

Can someone, anyone tell me where Airplay is in the iPad app? In both landscape and portrait mode I see no option for airplay, and have been up down and all around in the settings/help section with no signs of it.

What am I missing?

Try yourself people:
In Safari go to www.youtube.com. Once there click on the Safari Option menu at the center bottom of the phone (right above the home button) and click on "Add to Home Screen".

It creates an app that is more functional than the one they just released.

I hope this helps your user experience.

Still prefer Jasmine. Much cleaner UI, much quicker since you don't need to reload the UI elements every time. Also web apps are prone to web page "refreshing".

Can't choose video quality on the iPad, and thus cannot play videos at 1080p on my iPad 4. Back to McTube free version.

The Airplay button only appears if you're connected to an airplay station.

I have my apple TV on, and nothing. only a share button in Portrait and Landscape. Airplay works fine from my 2012 mac mini, so I can't say that's the issue.

As others have said, it's not an iOS limitation. Apps on iOS have been able to play the audio of a video in the background since a while now.

It seems that Google decided not to include this feature, and even asked third party Youtube players like Jasmine to remove that feature.

Now I'd like to know, can the latest version of the Youtube player on Android play audio in the background?

Why does this article feel the need to tell me that youtube is not a part of iOS 6. I really hat the lazy and unoriginal writing on this site.

So why can other YouTube apps play in the background?

Because Flash is the only way to display in video ads. Google hasn't found a way to embed ads (their main source of revenue in Youtube) in HTML5. That's why even if you have HTML5 enabled by default in Youtube, videos which have embedded ads play in Flash only.

No background audio and no airplay in the background means a no go for me.

I prefer the other apps that let you airplay a video to Apple TV, then you can leave the app and browse safari while the video continues to play on the TV.

I've been using Safari or Jasmine for the last few weeks - the Google made YouTube app does not buffer correctly at all, very slow indeed. Has this update fixed that?
