YTClassicVideoQuality – Bring Back Old Quality Controls to YouTube

If you are here then you probably hate the new video quality selection tab on YouTube. Those who wish to get the old quality selection tab back on their YouTube app can make use of the YTClassicVideoQuality jailbreak tweak. Using this tweak, you don’t have to go to Advanced > Video Quality to select the resolution; instead the classic resolution tab will greet you.

If you are not using a jailbroken iOS device, you really cannot do anything to revert to the classic interface for selecting YouTube video resolution. Prior to the launch of the tweak YTClassicVideoQuality, jailbroken iOS users were downgrading the YouTube app to bring back old quality controls. However, now with YTClassicVideoQuality tweak, you can get the old YouTube video quality controls without downgrading the app.

YTClassicVideoQuality Tweak – How the Old Quality Controls are Better?

The classic video resolution control interface on YouTube is much better than the new intuitive interface. The following reasons justify this statement.

  • First of all, in the new quality settings, you have to work through an additional layer to reach to the quality controls. A majority of the users will find this complex and useless.
  • Secondly, even if you are fine with selecting the video resolution from the Advanced tab, please note that the resolution changes will affect only the video that you are playing and not system-wide.
