PSA: Trick to doing audio-only YouTube on Android

Mobile Computing Outpost - Ars Technica OpenForum - arstechnica.com
YMMV of course, depending on how "stock" the Android on your device is, and maybe this is a well-known thing, but I was looking into this yesterday as a way to avoid having the screen on while listening to a game soundtrack, and I found out that if you open YouTube in Chrome, navigate to the video you want to just listen to, then "request desktop site" and play it, you can listen to a backgrounded tab's audio (it will stop when it goes into the background, BUT then you pull down your control/notifications center and the audio should be re-startable from there), and even turn off your screen/lock your phone and use the same control screen trick to get the audio to play.

There was a way to do this with Android Firefox before but I kept futzing with that and couldn't make it work.
