how to stop Youtube from stopping when switching tabs?
« on: September 26, 2012, 11:04:13 PM »
On chrome and dolphin, ad well as the YouTube app, when I switch to another screen or tab, the video pauses itself and stops playing. I find this annoying for a couple of reasons.

What I I want it to keep playing in the background? Is there a technique I can use, or another app/browser?

That's the problem?

So where do I get a good flash browser?

I use Puffin. If I go to YouTube and play a video and then browse a new tab the vid plays in the background. I don't know if it is a bug or what but it works.

Bjs229: have you ha any look using, or even seeing YouTube's new android button(top right above the video)in any nexus browser? Supposedly for dloading videos to the device, I can only see it on PC, not even with Puffin?

I haven't noticed it. I will look. All I know is I have been having all kinds of problems with YT appwise and with the browser.
