    Clearing the cookies and data and doing a forced restart no longer works on my Classic. Is is possible to install a older browser?

    It doesn't have anything to do with the browser it's YouTube

    Yes exactly. As I stated before this is also happening on PC's. This isn't a bug or blackberry issue. Please no one reload or downgrade their BlackBerry thinking it will fix this. Clearing browser cache and cookies is a temporary fix for now that works for some people. But whatever youtube changed is whats doing this. The only hope is that there is backlash and it's undone. However considering this has been standard behavior for IOS and Android for quite some time I doubt sheeple will care.

    I think I figured out why it stopped working, so I logged in to twitter on my browser and I received the security email stating that there's a new login, guess from what! Safari I was like wtf

    From a technical standpoint, this is likely to do very, very little to resolve the issue.

    YouTube may have made changes that adversely affect the BB10 browser, but it wasn't done on purpose to affect BB10 users. They couldn't care less about BB10 users one way or the other.

    Just clear the cookies and history and restart browser. This will only work for a while, at which time you will have to do it again.

    Use Android if playing YouTube in the background is a must. Plenty of apps and browsers available there to do that.
    Are there plenty for Android? That wasn't my experience last time I searched in earnest.

    I think downloading Qbrowser from bbworld is among the solutions. The display is even better than the stock browser.

    Not to get short, but it's pretty clear that all these 'solutions' are quickfixes that won't work for more than a week or two.

    If you're really torn up about using YouTube in the background, spend the 3$ for Browsie Browser. Apart from the fact that YouTube plays in the background, it's a fantastic browser. Built-in ad blocker, great night mode, user-agent switcher (so you can switch to Android and it will give you a much more modern version of Google than the stock browser gets), but much much more than that, it is very regularly updated by one of the few remaining BB10 devs.

    If you like this OS that much, support our devs!

    EDIT: Totally forgot my favourite Browsie feature of all: full screen mode! It's a real game-changer.

    Desktop mode has worked without fail so far.

    Browsie Browser is excellent and has a great feature set, but the mobile Youtube site still doesn't play when my screen is off.

    New update will contain a fix for this.

    The theme of this thread is YMMV. If you have a way that's working for you, that's great.

    Glad to see there'll be a Browsie update too (thx, dev!)

    Understood, it's just that the CS major in me is just wonder what the could possibly be the variable between all these different devices, OSes, YouTube code, and browsers that lead them to play or not play whilst minimised. It just doesn't make sense.

    Excellent!

    I so disliked the Supertube search and display I stopped using it. The desktop site for YouTube is a pain as well, so this Open In option is a decent solution. Thanks for reminding!
