Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-11935) Violation of the Prohibited Actions provision of the Content Policy.
Date Mon, 03 Oct 2016 23:36:20 GMT


Simon Pireyn commented on CB-11935:

Me neither, so have done a lot of tests and it's not only on Android N, I've the same behavior
(pause when in background, still playing with screen off) on M and Lollipop (didn't try lower).
So I've asked and it's someone from the Android Play Store verification team who told me that
I should call onPause on the WebView when the screen is turned off to pause the videos (it
should be the normal behavior). But I didn't want to be too invasive with my patch to avoid
to mess with the apps who needs to run in background. but maybe pausing the WebView when it's
not seen is not a problem if the JS can keep running. Or maybe the keepRunning parameter should
be at false by default.

> REASON FOR REJECTION:Violation of the Prohibited Actions provision of the Content Policy.
> After a regular review, we have determined that your app enables background playing of
YouTube videos, which is a violation of the YouTube API Terms of Service:
> "Your API Client will not, and You will not encourage or create functionality for Your
users or other third parties to: (8) separate, isolate, or modify the audio or video components
of any YouTube audiovisual content made available through the YouTube API;"
> All submission rejections are tracked. Repeated rejections due to policy violations will
result in app suspension, at which point this app will count as a strike against the good
standing of your developer account and no longer be available on Google Play.
