    when I start a song on youtube and hit the screen saver the song used to just keep playing. Now when the screen saver/screen lock is enabled the video pauses.

    Yo! I just realized this. What happened ? This was so good for BlackBerry. Even when I minimize or open new tab the video will stop playing. Since when did this happen ?

    This has to be a youtube thing. Not a BlackBerry thing.

    Private browser worked perfect like before for me though. Try that!

    I cannot play anything on YouTube, in full screen or other wise. Anyone having the same problem?

    Mate i found it, all youve got to do is clear all your cookies and browsing history, and youre back, you can again play videos on youtube app in black berry 10 while the window is minimised or the screen is locked.

    This is so frustrating! I don't know about the app but if you use youtube through the browser it pauses every time you minimize or lock the screen. This was a huge advantage of BlackBerry and I hope there's a fix.

    First, there is nothing exclusive to BB10 about running YouTube in the background. Android can do it easily too.

    Second, just do as above - clear your browser cookies and history. I have no issues on mine.

    Another quick fix is to click play on the video you want then hurry up and minimize the screen before the video loads/play and then it plays with no problem in the background, but if you go into the YouTube browser, it will mess up again.

    Ugh I hope somebody can create a fix since it's technically still playing in the background with this fix, it's not until you open it again it messed up.

    This is the only thing that has worked for me. However if you turn block pop-up back on and close the browser you have to repeat the steps again.

    I didn't have to repeat the steps and my Pop-Up block is on.
