    Is there a cydia tweak to fix the slow loading of the native YouTube app over wifi?

    it sucks, but for the time being, im running youtube videos through safari. it's alot faster.

    i heard changing DNS to google's dns might work, but in my case, it was just still slow.

    If you have an iPod Touch 4 or iPhone 4, its because its loading the video in 720p.

    Youtube App Buffer Fix:

    Tired of waiting 2 years (or what appears to be 2 years) for your youtube app to buffer? If so, this is a hack for you. Thanks to

    sidhant92, we are now able to have our youtube app stream the desired video in a bandwidth

    desired resolution (not the 720p wifi death trap).

    In order to apply this hack,

    iOS 4.1-4.3.x

    Navigate to:
    Code:

    /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/N81AP.plist

    Edit
    Code:

    <key>720p</key>
    <True/>

    To
    Code:

    <key>720p</key>
    <false/>

    Finally, reboot your device.

    There is no N81AP.plist on my Verizon Iphone. Is that just for AT&T?

    wouldnt that just mean that you are turning off the better quality video when on wifi?

    I don't think you can differentiate the difference between a 480p video and a 720p video on a 3.5 inch screen...

    You can if you look closely enough. But for everyday use it's no big deal.
