When I go to a YouTube channel on Google Chrome and in the main window of that channel there is a video playing (like channel's trailer) the auto starting main video keeps playing in background even if I click on another video to watch on that page. So I have to close that tab, and open the video in another one.
Does anyone have the same problem ?

Try to switch HTML5 player to flash player. I think HTML5 player forced to use on chrome browser and you cant disable it normally on youtube. Some not standard ways to swap to flash player for chrome:

1) Disable Youtube™ HTML5 Player chrome extension.

2) Change useragent for example to Firefox with User-Agent Switcher for Chrome.
