    Hi everyone. I came from an iPh**e, and I am still getting used to this OS. I love it so far, but a few things are obviously different.

    When I am watching a video on YouTube and pause it, if the screen times out, the video starts back over at the beginning; even though YouTube is still open. This is incredibly frustrating. What am I missing? Thanks!

    Nothing man. Its really annoying. All i can recommend is a modded version of the youtube app that lets youtube keep playing with the screen off. It also lets you watch full HD vids without wifi. Only problem is you have to uninstall the standard youtube app first which probably requires root.

    EDIT, i just read that u said while paused. if i pause and wajte the phone without opening another app, youtube stays where it was.. not sure if its this modded version allowing that though..

    Do you have a task killer installed? If so get rid of it.

    I just tried the stock Youtub app and when I lock my screen while a video is playing and unlock my phone the video is paused at the point of screen timeout. I just press the play button and it resumes.

    Must be a task killer then or an app opening and kicking youtube out of ram :thumbup:

    Did you waited too long and then connection was off? Because if you do that, then the local cache may be cleared out, so at a later stage, when you try to resume the play, the cache is not there, the application will start to stream from begining again.

    The updated youtube app is much better at remembering where you paused it :)
