    So you watching a video with nice music and you want it in the background? Well even if you Have the backgrounder app installed when you hit the home button the video sound fades away :(

    Well here is how to make it STAY playing in the background. You must be jail broken and have the app backgrounder installed.

    You must be in landscape mode when in YouTube! You can switch back to portrait mode if oh wish after you close YouTube.

    Go to your favorite YouTube video and search it, and before you click you result, read this. You have 1 second to do this step, so listen closely. As soon as you click you result, and you see it start to kinda of open, hit the home button fast. Give it 2 seconds and it will start playing your song.

    This was typed on my iPad with bulletproof song running in the background :). Lol. Enjoy!

    Or you can just open the video, let it start playing, close browser, dubbel tap homebutton slide to iPod controller (where the lockscreen option are), and just tap play :p

    wow jailbreak fail...

    Backgrounder is Activator controlled, NOT a tweak. You have to "Activate" it and it will go in the background. So Backgrounder works, Im doing it right now lol
