Screen inactivity

When I am watching a video on YouTube and dont touch the actual screen a lock and dim screen appears. It is very annoying as it is blocking my whole video and the phone is actually active. Is there any way to remove this?? Happens whenever I dont touch my screen while watching a video.

1) See if Play Store has any updates for YouTube app.

2) Tap and hold YouTube app shortcut on your home screen. Then when context menu appears, tap on App info. Then go to storage and clear data

Hey, 

I used to smart stay for things like this. I don't know if it still works or not these days. It wouldn't hurt to give it try. 

Best regards,

Re: Screen inactivity

@Samsung_duYmm5y it sounds like you have somehow added YouTube to the Game Launcher. That lock and dim screen is exactly what happens when you leave a game idle.

 

Try this:

  1. Open Game Launcher
  2. Near the bottom of the screen will be a blue bar. Slide this blue bar up.
  3. Touch and hold on the YouTube icon until the pop-up menu appears.
  4. Select "Remove from Game Launcher" on the menu.
