    I moved this to the Help section, where I think it might receive better attention.

    You can load the video on youtube then once you have exited youtube and gone onto another app if you double tap the home button so that the multitask thing comes up then slide it to the right and press the play button it will work but i think you have to go straight from youtube to the app you want to use otherwise it uses the music you have saved on your ipad instead of the sound from the youtube video. Hope this helps if your not too sure what i mean let me know and ill try to explain better.

    Thanks Tim, and THANKS Chrisipad!! Been driving me crazy that I had to use split screen to be able to listen to music while surfing. And now that problem is GONE :d
    Was real easy too

    1. Open Safari.
    2. Open Youtube app and start a song/video.
    3. Switch to Safari by dragging 4 fingers across the screen.
    4. Double tap home button (or use multitasking gesture) slide it to the left and press PLAY.
    5. START UR SURFIN!

    Exactly like u said, just wanted to clarify a little bit for others out there, dont take it the wrong way, no disrespect :)

    Make sure you are updated to 5.0.1 in order for the multitasking gestures to work.

    This is amazing! It was such a basic "need" that was missing prior to the 5.0.1 update. Surfing and listening to YouTube at the same time. Now, if only there was a way to listen to Vevo vids while surfing the web... *sigh*

    Here's another way, I like this way it's easy and works with any app not just safari.


    1. Open youtube to the song you want
    2. Hit play and wait to make sure it's playing.
    3. Hit home, this will end the song but it's okay!
    4. Hit the screen lock button or whatever it's called.
    5. Double tap the home button, this opens a shortcut to play the song.
    6. Hit play
    7. Unlock screen

    Now you should be at your home screen with the song playing in the background.
    Have fun.
