How to listen to YouTube audio outside of the app



With such a large music library on YouTube it’s an ideal way of listening to your favorite artists. Playing music videos in the native YouTube app is convenient, but playing and leaving the app to still listen to your video’s audio isn’t possible. Luckily thanks to iOS 7 there’s a simple way around this, allowing you to enjoy your music in no time.

    So first this worked in all iOS versions before. Second is your title tricky because it’s not the actual app you’re talking about but the safari youtube.
    Sorry but this “How to” is irrelevant as f*ck.

  • To properly get youtube running audio after close just involves jailbreaking, installing Flex, then the tweak to allow backgrounding.
