Oh boy. I recently opened a topic about this thinking that my app was rejected because I placed ads on my app in which has an youtube component in an ad-free screen. I contacted the support team, and it turns out the rejection was for a different reason. The youtube component plays in the background. When the user press back, close the current youtube screen and return to main screen- this is what I did, and the video didn’t play in the background while testing. Maybe the youtube component plays after the screen is locked? I don’t know what to do. Please help. Relevant screenshots are attached. Maybe there’s a way to end player?
I know my face looks weird
This is strange, but I can make a suggestion:
On the screen where the YouTube component is, do this:
When ScreenX.On App Pause- Call Youtube_Player.Pause
I hope it serves
This should actually be impossible with the YouTube component. Do you use a YT extension?
… or are you using virtual screens?
Since I haven’t tried youtube component in a while however, I have experienced this on one of my devices, that it plays when locked
@Brain_Flare_Creation can you share your screen blocks
Yes, it actually seems to depend on the Android version. Everything is ok with Android 8 and 9, with Android 5 the YT Player also plays with a locked (standby) screen.
Virtual screens? i meant the screen which has the youtube component. Guess I should’ve made it clear.
Strange…this happens to me too.
Yes, I just confirmed this. The video pauses when screen is locked on Android 9. But it keeps playing on Android 7. Is this is a bug?
I need to first charge my Android 7 test device, then I will check it.
Yes, please check it out!
Yes, also playing in standby on Android 7.
So use this block:
Did it and it is accepted! Thanks for all of your help btw, even though my app is shown to be published, I cannot find it in google play even using the direct link. Guess I have to wait a while.
