YouTube does not allow playing videos or music in the background on your iPhone. Moreover, you are also not allowed to play music while you record a video. In the age of Stories, the ability to add music to your videos should be standardized. While there is no straightforward way to do so, there is a trick that will let you record video on your iPhone with YouTube videos or music playing in the background. Scroll down to see how you can do it.
How to Easily Play YouTube Videos While You Record a Video on Your iPhone - Simple Steps!
As mentioned earlier, there is no way YouTube lets you play music or any video in the background on your iPhone. However, there is a trick that will let you play music or any video on YouTube while you record a video on your iPhone. This will give you the freedom to not add another layer of editing over videos if you want to put music. The trick is pretty simple and you do not require the use of any third-party app. If you are not familiar with the mechanism, this is how you can record video on your iPhone with YouTube playing in the background. It can be music, podcast, or any other video.
Step 1: The first thing that you have to do is launch the YouTube app on your iPhone.
Step 2: Search and select the video with the audio that you want in the video.
Step 3: Once the video is loaded and playing, simply bring down the Notification Center by swiping down from the top portion of the screen on your iPhone.
Step 4: Swipe right in the Notification Center and you will be taken to the Camera app automatically.
Step 5: Now tap and hold the Photo button to record the video. Be sure to note that you should not shift to the Video option.
Step 6: Now simply record the video with a YouTube video playing in the background.
This is all that you have to do to record a video on your iPhone with YouTube playing in the background. If you shift to the video option in the Camera app, the YouTube videos will stop playing. The workaround is a pretty neat way of recording a video with music at the same time. When you bring down the Notification Center and then go to the camera app, you are tricking YouTube that the app is still open. This does not stop the music from playing in the background while you record a video on your iPhone.
