    Hey guys,

    Just have a quick question.
    Before Jailbreaking my iPhone, I can do this:

    Play music / audio from YouTube, Jasmine app or whatever even after I close the app (provided that I double click to the home button, swype right to my music controls, and press play again, JUST like that video)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyk66hMvbJk <--- this video explains it well enough.


    However, after jailbreaking my device, I seem to lost the ability... I can't go to my music control, press the play button and expect the audio to play anymore...

    I have Activator, Auxo, Callbar, intelliScreenX, Nitrous, Springtomize 2 currently installed...

    Which app made me lose the function?
    Thanks for your help.

    No jailbreak tweak stopped it. YouTube removed it all together regardless of whether your jailbroken or not. Flex has a patch for background audio or Music Controls Pro 6.0+.

    I think it was youtube that removed the functionality

    Download McTube from the App Store. It allows caching and background playback.

    This is the only feature I can think of that's missing from the ProTube app. I've been hoping this gets added to ProTube. Fingers crossed.

    Does the ProTube extension for YouTube offer background playing?

    Ahhh I see. Thanks. Do you think the dev will add backgrounding to the 2 tweaks? Seems to me that would be the next natural feature update since so many people want it. But I've also thought this for a little while now and still nothing.
