Other apps like ogyoutube do not have overlay.Just delete the original YouTube with root and you will have a perfect experience
The best mod version of youtube, newpipe is alternative, don't be confused.

In recent versions the watch history is not saved. I didn't find any solution to this issue. Anybody else facing this problem
Not really an alternative, but a mod, and a rather nice one at that. I did have an issue with having to uninstall and reinstall this and the associated log in package when I changed my password, so that can be a nuisance. Rather nice though, and it doesn't appear to have as many tracking issues as YT proper. There has not appeared to be a sync between what I watch via Vanced, and what I watch on desktop.
Minor con: You can't remove a song from a playlist, and mother of god, YT playlists are insane. I said Minor Threat, and it plays the BeeGees good lord man.
There are some small bugs that need to be ironed out. Otherwise great app, I refuse to pay for background play.

I found the download links didn't work well, probably because it's been downloaded too much.
Getting the app straight off XDA worked better for me.
