YouTube is still a source of music for a large number of people, whether it’s a website or an app. The main reason for this is the large library on YouTube. YouTube offers users to stream every song there, along with custom remixes and covers of their favorite artists. The main drawback is the lack of a background play feature on YouTube with all its components. This has caused a lot of frustration for users.
There are many ways the YouTube app can play itself in the background, but all of them need to root your phone in order to be successful. However, a quick hack can be done on any Android smartphone. All you need is VLC Media Player, which most people already have a media player app available on the Play Store. So, follow the next steps on how to play YouTube videos in VLC Media Player.
If your phone does not have a VLC media player, go to the Google Play Store and download the app.
After you have installed the VLC media player, open YouTube. Then, move on to the video you want to play.
Click on the share button you normally use to share videos with your friends. Scroll through the list and select ‘Play with VLC’.
Video streaming should start now via VLC player. Click on the Tri-Dot menu at the bottom right and click on ‘Play as Audio’.
