Keep YouTube Vanced playing in the background when closing the mini-player
I'm using YouTube Vanced. When I close the picture-in-picture by tapping the "×" of the mini-player, the video stops and I have to click the play button in notifications to continue playing it in the background.
How can I make the video automatically continue seamlessly in the background?

- YouTube Vanced version: 16.29.39-Builds-01.54.00

Change Settings -> Background & Downloads -> Playback to Always On.
Then, while watching, it will just not stop when switching apps or returning to the home screen.
If Picture-in-Picture is on it will switch to the mini player, but tapping the mini player and then pressing the headphone symbol will switch to background/audio-only mode.
Tapping the X from PiP/mini player will always stop the video, even with these settings done properly.
