    Hello everybody

    I want to ask if anybody of you know some application that can lock the screen, or better said, make it unresponsibe.

    The problem is this. My girlfriend's kid loves to watch YouTube or other videos in our tablet, and we don't want that the video stops because of some accidental touch in the screen.

    Is there any function that can do this function?

    Thanks

    Yes. Go to settings, security and choose screen lock, pin and input a pin.
    No 3rd party app needed

    That's not what he means. He wants the touch screen to become unresponsive during video playback. I don't think that can be done.

    Could be worth trying some of the "kiosk mode" apps, which might be able to lock the touch-screen out while the videos are playing. Can't recommend a specific app though.

    Well I've found this to be effective is to set your device lock code in Settings than have the apps you want to run under it while the screen is locked. The only down side to that is if the screen is touched or swiped the lock code box will appear over whatever that's playing under it but it will not stop whatever its playing until it's unlocked and manually disabled. Now to some just seeing that code box appear on top of whatever you have your device set to do may become a deterrent to whomever it's interacting with. This seems to work on Android 6+
