I have a youtube premium account and i often time airplay videos from my iPhone YouTube app to apple tv.

With YT premium, I can background play the YT videos and airplay it to apple tv.

Since I upgraded to ios14 and tvOS 14, every time I airplay videos to apple tv, the video stops when the iphone goes dark, into lock mode, or when i leave the app. When I tap on the screen I can see the video file and when I tab the play button the video will play but it will start from the very beginning. If i manage to have it back ground play while airplaying it to the apple tv, everytie i switch back to the youtube app, the video will be interrupted and start from beginning again.

Has anyone run into the same problem?

Yep same with other subscriptions I have. I don't sub to YT Premium.
But Formula 1 and WEC live broadcasts over airplay is the same.
Phone is unusable if I'm using airplay.

Same here using my iPhone on iOS 14. I have a couple of other devices on lower than ios 14 (an iPad on the last release of iOS 12 and an iPhone 6 on iOS 13). Both of these work fine when airplaying to my Apple TV which is on TVOS14 and be locked or I can leave the YouTube app and AirPlay will continue. This says to me that it’s not the Apple TV that’s the problem but iOS 14.

7.6.1 update did not help.
edit: Sorry. On iOS 14.2 it is fixed. But 7.6.1 update for Apple TV did not help with the pausing the video watched on YouTube App on Apple TV. The Apple TV will crashed after this.

I have the same issue with an iPhone 6 running iOS 12. (the most recent iOS Apple allows on iPhone 6). With TCL Roku TV. Clearly an issue with the iPhone, not the tv. Seems to be triggered by screen dimming well before auto lock kicks in. It doesn’t happen if I touch the iPhone screen every couple minutes to keep the phone screen lit. Anyone know a better solution?

I have observed this same problem. Have found a solution which helps when i play back stuff. You have to go First to the Control Center of your phone and manage there the AirPlay. Its a smal icon at the video/Audio part of the Control Center. But This has to be done before starting The video.
