    Usually when playing downloaded videos from Yourtube, you have to stay in the app to watch the video or listen to the music. When the app closes, backgrounded or not, the video stops playing. I accidentially found a workaround for this though..

    Load up a video.
    Hold the rewind button until you return to the video select screen
    Background youtube and you're done.

    The audio will play in the background, and as long as youtube is running it will continue playing. I havn't seen or heard of this anywhere, so apologies if its been mentioned, I just wanted to share my finding.

    Is YourTube even worth it? Or is MxTube better, as a free alternate?

    Nice find! Same thing similar to the video app. If you have a video you just want to listen to just start the video and then press the home button. double click to bring up the music menu and perss play. It will continue the video's audio.

    I would say it was worth it before when Youtube as an app actually functioned correctly. Actually, at this point, Yourtube is saving my Youtube app since videos won't play, but they will download. Overall though, it streamlines the whole video downloading process, and its extremly reliable; never had any problems with it. Plus its one less icon on your springboard..
