    Touch the screen to prevent it from dimming... Its quite simple, and if its not possible to do that, just extend the auto lock times. It shouldn't be happening though...

    That is very odd... I'll try my jailbroken iPod touch on 7.0.6 later and see if I have the same issue.

    I haven't had that issue. Are you running 7.1.1? If not, update to it

    I am facing the same problem with my iPhone 6 plus. it is so irritating. The phone locks while i am watching the video unless i keep touching the screen to avoid. I have noticed its not just YouTube, it happens within all Apps, try not touching the phone during any app/game and it will lock. It never happened on my S3, the phone recognizes the the task automatically and keeps running the app unless i purposely lock it down. The phone should only auto lock when it is idol and no app is running on the front, but this one sucks.

    If i turn off the auto lock from settings then it permanently stays ON, no matter if any app is running or not.

    Any help? Were you able to sort this out?

    Thanks,
    Saj

    It was happening to my iPhone 6 Plus for over a week until I decided to look up for solutions.

    I closed all my apps and rebooted my phone and the "1 minute lock" on YouTube stopped and I was able to watch videos without touching the screen.

    Hope it helps with this solution.

    Was probably the reboot that fixed it.
