YouTube Vanced

injected YouTube Background Playback (iYTBP) was the first name of the app after renamed the project as YouTube (Ad)Vanced. The idea came from the Xposed Module for You Tube Video Playback. Since the Xposed Module had some problems working with the Android Nougat, this app was designed with all features of that module.

YouTube Vanced is an advanced version based on the official You Tube app, lets you watch videos without any in video advertisements.
