Evernote causes youtube to play in the background

Recommended Posts

When I open the Evernote Android app it starts playing youtube in the background.  It also triggers background play when I use the youtube share feature to share a video with Evernote.  After I've shared the video to Evernote Youtube will random stop the video I'm watching and play something else in the background.  I have a galaxy note 9.  Does this happen to anyone else?

I have Galaxy S7, and it is happening to me to. It plays randomly and is very annoying.

Has been reported many times, but EN, as usual doesn't respond, ignoring customers.

This has been happening to me for quite sometime.  It's annoying as ***** and is definitely a bug.  The only way to stop the background play of a youtube video is to start the evernote app and then kill it.  It comes right back, though, the next time I share a video with evernote or even just start up the evernote app to look for a note.  Currently I have a Note 9.

I've never tried sharing a YouTube link, so I haven't experienced this. But if it's happening consistently, since everyone who's reporting it here has a Premium subscription, some reports to Support might be in order: https://help.evernote.com/hc/requests/new. @AndreasM, are you saying you've reported it to support several times with no response, or just referring to the reports here?

I submitted it.  They were able to reproduce it. And, to summarize they're response, they have more pressing issues than this one to deal with first.

I arrived here because I have the same annoying problem. If I have or recently had Youtube open then open Evernote, then some stupid audio starts playing and there is no way to see it. Only fix is to "close all" apps. Making me HATE Evernote and actively seeking alternatives.

I hate it too, but you don't have to close all apps. Just force close the Evernote app. I have android. I display the running apps and close Evernote.  That shuts down the background YouTube. It's not fool proof. Sometimes it starts back up later at random times. It works 95% of the time.

I recently had a similar problem. I used the web clipper to capture a page with some auto-playing ads. These then started playing in android. To fix this, i edited the note to remove the ads. Not sure, if this is the same problem you've been having.
