Playing YouTube videos while phone is locked

When I first got this phone I immediately noticed my phone was playing YouTube videos while locked. My s5 was unable to do this. I also noticed if I removed an aux or headphones the music will continue to play off the phone stereo. On my s5 it would stop any media immediately.

Now all of a sudden my galaxy j7 can't play YouTube whilst locked. And now the music is cutting off when I remove the aux. I thought this was a new feature from upgrading, but I did some research and couldn't find any information on others playing YouTube videos while the phone is locked.

How about you guys ? I want to know if I disabled something accidentally, which I have not to my knowledge messed with the options yet. Was this some bug to begin with?

nothing but issues

I am a Boost dealer and I got this phone right after it launched with Boost. I've had it for about 4 months and I am about to send it in for the 3rd time. The sound goes in and out and it sounds like its on speaker phone. Its not just a minor issue its bad enough that every person I speak to comments on it.. Not sure why Samsung wont just replace it but if they cant fix it this time I will be going back to my LG permanently.

1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 415 MSM8929
Midrange? Are you kidding????
That's certainly not a high-end chip, and low-end with Qualcomm would be a Snapdragon 210, etc.
