Android youtube player app, google play rejected for background playing

Open 1 Answers 62 Views Web Development

I have been working on android youtube player app like Viral Popup. And published OK to Google Play. But after few days it rejected with

"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;"


And I changed my app logic. For now it stops video playing after screen lock. (I think it is what Google want from me. Background playing related thing..) And uploaded again. But nothing changed with google reject. Still same "...we have determined that your app enables background playing..."

So guys if you have same issue, how do you solve this? What would I do now? How to NOT violate YouTube API TOS[8]?

Sorry I have no idea. But try reading the youtube API page in google. That might help to solve the issue.
