Default how to lock out controls while using YouTube app?

The video player app can engage the Video Lock mode by pressing the power button. No such option seems to exist when using the YouTube app. What am I missing? Is there an app that can create some sort of workaround?

I started a similar post some days ago, it is a pain in the ass and I have not found a work around it.

It would be very helpful for putting the phone on your pocket while listening to youtube or music.

On one of these forums i read someone saying they were able to lock the screen in the youtube app with some combination of the volume rocker and the power button but i haven't found anything that works yet.

I was just making fun of my iphone earlier today but if I can't figure something out for this I may be going back to it. I spend at least a couple hours a week running errands listening to talks on youtube with the phone in my pocket and these buttons are way too sensitive to not have a way to lock it out.
