    Default youtube videos not displaying play and pause buttons on lock screen

    When I casting a youtube video from my nexus 7 to my tv via chromecast, I have to wake up the tablet, unlock the screen, then pull up the youtube window and press pause or play.

    I seem to remember in the past that if my tablet went to sleep while I was watching a youtube video, I could just wake it up and I could pause or play the video directly from the lock screen, just like netflix.

    I don't know why this no longer works for youtube. Is there some kind of setting I need to change? Or am I remembering things incorrectly? I could have swore I was able to pause and play youtube from the lock screen when I first got my tablet.

    What happens when you're NOT casting YouTube and you try the same thing - do the controls show up on the lockscreen then?

    I am pretty sure I can do that on my device. But, I will give it a try. Also, I am not using a ChromeCast, my TV has that casting capability built in.

    I played a youtube video with out casting it, when I hit the sleep button, the normal lock screen showed up when I woke it back up. I had to unlock it and pull up the youtube video to continue watching.

    So I gave it a try and like Terrorizer, the normal lock screen appeared. No special screen for controlling the TV

    Maybe it's just wishful thinking, but I could swear it did that before.

    Well regardless of weather or not it did it before, the latest update added it. Also, voice to text now works (again) on youtube. I am happy.
