When you open a YouTube page and play a video, the add-on automatically loads audio source only and prevents the video content from loading. This way, you will save your internet bandwidth because the video content is much larger in size comparing to the audio content. Moreover, when you just want to "listen" to a video, there is no need to load the video content at all.
