      When a page contains a Youtube video, it should be paused when the screen is turned off.
      Without this condition the app can be rejected for violation by the Play Store:

      REASON FOR REJECTION:Violation of the Prohibited Actions provision of the Content Policy.

      After a regular review, we have determined that your app enables background playing of YouTube videos, which is a violation of the YouTube API Terms of Service:

      "Your API Client will not, and You will not encourage or create functionality for Your users or other third parties to: (8) separate, isolate, or modify the audio or video components of any YouTube audiovisual content made available through the YouTube API;"

      All submission rejections are tracked. Repeated rejections due to policy violations will result in app suspension, at which point this app will count as a strike against the good standing of your developer account and no longer be available on Google Play.
