The media control buttons in the YouTube application never disappear on their own for me. They are there in both vertical and horizontal orientation. In fujll screen and in fill mode they are still there. They only do away if I go to full screen mode, select the info button, then close the info panel. But they reappear if I do anything else.
Is there anyway to make them disappear on their own? On any other phone they go away after a few seconds of play.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I had this same issue with the new 2019 Samsung Tab A 10.1 tablet. My solution was to go to settings - Apps - Pick YT and uninstall all updates. This worked for me anyway.
