    What happened here? Did YouTube all of a sudden prioritize damaging BB10? Why is background play disabled on YouTube? And ad-skipping is disabled too. What are the mechanisms that allowed YouTube to make these changes in regard to BB10 operation?

    Same ! I think it's the 10.3.3 update that blocked the browser from playing YouTube videos in the background. So I was about to ask for the 10.3.2 browser bar file... unless it's not the browser but the site itself.

    It's not specific to BB10, Youtube is trying to prevent listening to music while not watching the videos.

    Just use the Supertube app from BBW.

    Woah, thanks for this advice, you're the best.

    And Google is such a jerk, trying to force BB10 users to buy Android+YouTube Red? Yeah right.

    No its not BB10 or 10.3.3.

    The same thing happens on my Z30 running 10.2.1 and my Q5 running 10.3.2. Youtube changed something on their end with the mobile site.

    For some stupid reason, youtube is firmly against background playing on mobile devices.

    The reason is to force us buy youtube red subscription which allows you to play in background.

    Apps like OGYouTube and Newpipe have that feature. No need for YouTube Red subscription.
