Do you want to hide the controls in the iOS 9 video player when tap Play then you should check new Cydia tweak called PlayDismiss. For those who often watch videos on their jailbroken devices this tweak improves the experience of playing videos on the platform by reducing clutter as quickly as possible when you play a video.
What PlayDismiss tweak is going to do is to hide all the video controls the very moment you tap on the Play button whenever you’re using Apple’s video player to watch any video. This consists of that blurred interface that appears at the top and bottom of the screen with the scrubber, forward and back buttons, and full-screen toggle button.
The tweak affects not only videos you’ve got stored in your device’s Videos app, but also those you might be streaming online via Safari.
How To Hide The Controls In The iOS 9 Video Player
Before you install PlayDismiss, you’ll see how the video controls remain on the screen for several seconds after tapping on the play button:
For many users, this is really annoying as the controls end up cutting into your viewing area, leaving you unable to see the upper and lower-most edges of the video until the interface auto-dismisses itself. You could tap on the full-screen button at the bottom right manually, but this is something that really should be automatic.
So in order to hide the controls in the iOS 9 video player when tap Play head to Cydia and download PlayDismiss tweak for free of cost. Once installed the video controls are dismissed immediately after you tap play, providing you with instant full-screen action:
Note that the tweak doesn’t work in videos that don’t use Apple’s video player, so some third-party apps from the App Store may not be compatible.
PlayDismiss is a great tweak that helps you to enjoy watching the video without annoying controls on your jailbroken iOS 9 device.
