Netflix is one of the most popular movie and TV show streaming platform. Its mobile app has been downloaded thousands of times since it gives convenience of watching your favorite movies and TV shows on the go. However, this doesn’t mean that it is the best streaming app around. This is why a jailbreak community developer has created FlixEnhancer, a jailbreak tweak that brings additional features to better the performance of the Netflix app.
One of the things that FlixEnhancer tackles is the rating system. This feature adds a small bar just below the title of the TV or the movie show. The rating appears as a percentage numeric value or percentage meter to give you an idea of the popularity of the movie or TV show you’re watching. This feature grabs information from the movie critic site Rotten Tomatoes. The feature can be configured as per your liking.
Another feature that you get with FlixEnhancer is the ability to skip forward to a precise point in the movie or TV show. It adds a button on the media player that lets you skip to between 10 and 60 seconds at a time. You can configure this option in the settings feature to choose the time you prefer between the skips.
The developer has added a Chromecast Preferred audio that will come in handy to those who use Google Chromecast. Often, Chromecast users find themselves with a poor sound quality since Netflix automatically selects 5.1 audio for the device yet it isn’t optimal.
How to configure FlixEnhancer
Configuring FlixEnhancer is pretty easy. Simply visit the preferences pane in the settings section of the Netflix app. Once here, change your preferred audio by toggling the sound toggle. You can also change the forward skip option as well as the percentage meter and amount.
This tweak works in both iOS 8 and 9 and on the latest versions of the Netflix app. It is also undergoing constant updates hence new features will be added to boost the tweak’s functionality.
