A youtube app to have music running in the background?

Is there a youtube app that I can listen to in the background well browsing the net or playing games? The official one does not let you do this.

Tubebox.
There are browser apps that will let you do that as well. Tubebox is most similar to the youtube app.
For you to play in the background you may need to cache the files first though.
Can't remember if you can stream to background. I don't think so though.

I've bee using this. It can play vids in the background. Lets you download vids from youtube, vimeo and dailymotion and you can make playlists for those. https://itunes.apple.com/ph/app/instatube-best-player-for/id601171302?mt=8

Got it for free and it's gone that low a few times
