Almost all of us spend hours on YouTube daily. But a lot of people who watch YouTube videos in their Chrome browser are facing a problem which has made their video-watching experience extremely pathetic.

But I lose my mind when YouTube video pauses after I switch tab to some other website. Fortunately, there are some ways to fix YouTube video pausing when tab switched.
