    Default 'YouTube to ProTube' Lets You Open YouTube Links Using the Official ProTube App for iOS


    Last month, well-known iOS developer Jonas Gessner officially released his ProTube application in the iOS App Store. It has been a big hit since its release, and many prefer it over the YouTube application that Google offers for free in the iOS App Store.

    If you're one of the users that prefers ProTube over YouTube for iOS, then you're absolutely going to fall in love with a new free jailbreak tweak called YouTube to ProTube by iOS developers gertab and David Glinski.

    With this tweak, if you have the ProTube application from the App Store installed on your iOS device, and you tap on a YouTube link anywhere in iOS, that YouTube link will launch the ProTube application instead of the YouTube application and instead of opening a Mobile Safari link to the video on YouTube's mobile Web site.

    This is the first jailbreak tweak to ever be released to add additional improvements to the ProTube application from the App Store, so this is pretty groundbreaking. The application was already awesome out of the box, and now thanks to the jailbreak community, it can be even cooler.

    The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can enable or disable the tweak on demand:



    The tweak does require ProTube for YouTube, which is a $1.99 download from the iOS App Store at this link. For the tweak to work properly, you must ALSO have the YouTube application from Google installed on your device. If you want to give it a try, you can download YouTube to ProTube for free right now from Cydia's BigBoss repository.

    Name: YouTube to ProTube
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0.0-1
    Requirements: iOS 7.0-8.1.1, ProTube for YouTube, YouTube
    Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 8.1.1
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer(s): gertab and David Glinski
    Editor's Rating:  5/5

    Non-jailbroken devices. I don't jailbreak everything and I want to be ready in case it takes a while for a jailbreak. Also, support the dev!

    I've actually noticed the opposite. Probably because of the manual resolution control. YouTube would always try to play in 720p, but I have ProTube set for 360.

    I've noticed that protube has a huge battery drain issues. Is this just me or a more general issue?

    EDIT: Failed to mention that I have had it since it was shown on here and have noticed it every use.

    I haven't ended up using ProTube much yet as most things I watch are sent to me as links. I'll report back upon further usage.

    Edit: Apparently the Dim tweak affects screenshots too, but yes, Open in Protube 2 is there.
