I cannot figure out how to play Youtube Videos in the background / on devive in Standy.

Is it a beta bug? When I click play on control center or on lockscreen, the current YouTube music dissapear and a sing from iTubes appears.

You can listen to YouTube in the background if you use the mobile site rather than the app

I'm using Safari. It's not working anymore. On previous iOS it worked fine.

I have filled out a bug report

Thanks for the hint with Vimate.
Works perfect.

Really? LOL

Subscribe to YouTube Red or download Vimate.
Why am I just now finding out about Vimate?! Gah, I love it! I can finally turn my screen off and the audio still plays; not to mention that the "Dark Mode" makes YouTubing in low light much easier. Anywho, thanks!
