YouTube is one of the most commonly used video streaming sites and YouTube users can view videos conveniently in the background with a premium subscription, while they switch to another application to view a different video.
Yet the video is immediately paused if you close the app without the premium subscription. The users have to buy their premium subscription to play videos in the background.
