None of the code are from mine app, but all are in the library. I didn’t register any receiver in my code, so can’t unregister anything in my fragment that works with the youtubeservice.

I think the issue is similar to https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/android-developers/6gzpwkaRgoE but no answer given. Any idea how to get rid of this internal crash of youtube.api.service?

How to&Answers:

Even if you do not manually register any receiver, an activity may register it to use it in some way on the current activity. I think you should need to call unregisterReceiver() method on onPause().

Please be aware that onDestroy() and onStop() are not guaranteed to be called.
If onPause() will be called, then the Activity is no longer in the foreground.

OnStop():

Called when you are no longer visible to the user. You will next receive either onRestart(), onDestroy(), or nothing, depending on later user activity.
Note that this method may never be called, in low memory situations where the system does not have enough memory to keep your activity’s process running after its onPause() method is called.

For more information, here’s the link: http://developer.android.com/reference/android/app/Activity.html#onStop%28%29

Fortunately, I also found some stackoverflow items that you can refer to:

I hope this will help.

Answer:

I solved this:

In manifest.xml Declare something like this.

<activity
    android:name=".YouTubeActivity"
    android:configChanges="keyboardHidden|orientation|screenSize"
    android:screenOrientation="landscape"
    android:theme="@style/AppTheme.NoActionBar" />
