Speed up your youtube streaming on Iphone,Ipod touch,Ipad with TCP Optimizer


One of the most used app on the iPhone is the Youtube app and how would it be if a simple tweak could enhance its performance to the next level ?

Well there is a new app to tweak the Youtube app to make the Youtube videos stream faster than before.Its called the TCP Optimizer.Sadly to get it working you have to jailbreak your iPhone,iPad or the the iPod touch.


In order to install the tweak you need to add http://cydia.pushfix.info/ repository to Cydia and refresh the source.You would see the “TCP Optimizer” on the package listings.Click on it and its gets installed without even having to restart your iPhone.

Try the Youtube app now and you will definitely see an improvement in the streaming.

And for people who really want to get into the blue print and want to know how this tweak works,TCP Optimizer increases the TCP receive buffer from 131072 to 292000, and disables TCP delayed acknowledgements, which allows a maximum of 16 un-ACK’d packets instead of 8 and sets the default package size to 1460 instead of 512 (prior to tweaking).

This tweak not only improves your Youtube streaming but also makes your overall browsing experience better.

This TCP Optimizer tweak to speed up your youtube streaming has been developed by the dev team that was behind Pushfix.

Please note that you should be on iOS 3.1.2 or above for this tweak to work,also this tweak doesn’t work on Apple TV if you were wondering about that.
