You often want to play a favorite song, mix or entire playlist without looking at the video on YouTube. Sometimes it's even frustrating, as you can empty your battery faster, or even listen to headphones with your phone in your pocket.
You probably know the default application YouTube Will stop the sound as soon as you lock the screen. However, some of us use it YouTube To listen to music, radio shows, podcasts, audiobooks instead of just watching videos with cats. This method only works for devices Android.
First, there is an application called PVstar + Who could do that. Unfortunately, it was removed from Play store in December 2014 and is no longer available. You could download the apk file PVstar +, But it will not help you in this case, because the application does not work well with YouTube.
There are, however, currently two relatively new applications, FireTube si Audiopocket Which you will love if you want to listen to YouTube videos with your phone's screen off.
Play YouTube with the screen off or in the background
FireTube Is an excellent application that lets you search and listen to any video YouTube That you want. It does not matter if you stay inside the app and keep it YouTube Open in background or off screen - this app runs great. In addition to the obvious benefits, only the audio track in the video you searched for is to save your traffic (you can also control the audio quality format inside the player).
Here's how to install the app:

Audiopocket another alternative to running YouTube with the screen closed
If you do not want or have trouble installing an application on Amazon App Store, There is another alternative that has fewer features but can be easily installed on Play store (Google Play).
AudioPocket (Beta) also allows you to take a video on YouTube the application Android Native, convert to MP3 format and then play it back in the background as a regular audio file. To do this, follow these simple steps:
