Is there any way to play a YouTube video in the background on iOS 8 so I can have music playing from a video while doing other things with the iPad?
Follow these steps:
- Open Safari on your iPad
- Go to www.youtube.com and search for a video
- When the video you choose is playing, press the home button
- The music will stop playing
- Slide from the button to the top (Control Center)
- Press the play button
Normally, you can now hear the audio from your YouTube video..
The new Vox app for iOS can play audio from YouTube videos in the background.
