I was listening to a video tutorial on YouTube the other day using my Airpods. Since I can't see the sdcreen, I wasn't interested in the video, just the audio.
So I locked my iPhone and put it in my pocket so that I could wander around while listening.
Unfortunately, as soon as I locked the phone, YouTube stopped playing. I can understand why this might be a reasonable behavior since most people want to see the video and, if the screen is locked, then the video wouldn't be shown. But I was only interested in the audio.
I poked around to see if there was a setting to enable Youtube to play when the screen was locked or to just play audio but I didn't see anything that fit the bill.
I'm wondering if other folks have run into this issue and if there are any solutions out there so that one can listen to the audio portion of a YouTube video with the screen locked.
Thanks for any suggestions.
