    Is it possible to use the Youtube app without the gamepad? Or can you switch only the gamepad off?

    you can switch the gamepad display if you want by using a homebrew :)
    https://github.com/Maschell/function-patcher-example/releases
    run it from the Homebrew launcher.
    then launch what you want (youtube, netflix, etc.) and press R3 to shutdown the "display".

    only the display is OFF, not the touchscreen, which can be useful to navigate/pause/etc.

    That's not shutting it down entirely to save the power, but at least there's no more led powered.

    You can use your phone to play youtube videos on the Wii U... or your pc.
