Default looking for a tubex like app for android

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tube...939906112?mt=8

Is there something like this for android?
I want an app with the same functionality...something simple. If I was watching a youtube video on my old iphone, I could simply hit the home button and have the audio playing in the back ground with Tubex. This allowed me to open other apps while the audio kept playing in the bg, but if I wanted to return to the video, I could simply click on the app again and the video would continue playing without skipping a beat.

I'm having heck of a time finding a similar app on Android. I'm trying really hard to like Android but it's getting pretty tough. If I wasn't poor, I would have bought another iphone.

so they took down Radio YouTube for some reason.
Yeah, Android's awesome...you can have tons of clock widgets up the ass but you can't do any useful **** like listening to YouTube in the background.
Nice.

It probably has to do with YouTube Red, which allows for playing music in the background IIRC. That's probably why they took it down.

There is a new app, that uses YouTube Api, and works in background. It plays only the sounds, you can listen to music for free by using the app SMU. Here is the play store link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...com.smu.player

i've found a convoluted way to get background audio going with kodi+youtube addon and using mxplayer as an external video player.

I'll check out SMU, however I'm not liking the facebook authentication because I don't use facebook.

If you're not too picky about design you can use Tubemate it's banned from Google Play because it also allows for video downloads.

Quick tutorial : search video in Tubemate, click the green (download)arrow, It will give a list of quality options and videotypes, select the one of your preference and now click the play audio button and it will open the audio in a build in player. Unfortunately background play does not work for video unless you use a external player.

You can also make a playlist by visiting the videos, clicking the green arrow, select quality, click playlist icon and select which playlist to add to. In the playlist windows you can either click play video or play audio.

I'm looking to avoid the whole downloading individual video business. Just an extra useless step that I don't really care about.
Besides I've found a way with Kodi and Youtube addon for what I want to do.
But thanks anyway.

Ok, you're welcome. The app however does not download anything if you use the play audio/video option. With audio it just streams and with video you get a warning/option to download instead of stream, but streaming also works fine for me

Also it works for a multitude of videosites. Not just YouTube.

OK you convinced me. tried it out and it works well . I'll probably switch to it from kodi... it's less clunky to work with. thanks again.
