Access to streaming video from a variety of apps is one of the perks of using an iPhone. Unfortunately, these videos often are barraged with advertising and include restrictions on what can be viewed when. The jailbreak tweak StreamEnhancer is appropriately named, as this tweak will change the video viewing experience on iOS devices once installed.

Many streaming video apps are enhanced by StreamEnhancer, including YouTube, History Channel, Comedy Central, NBC, Hulu, and A&E.
