Face Time Mod Improves Quality of FaceTime Video Calls

By , Aug 11, 2010

Face Time Mod is a new jailbreak app that changes the FPS (Frames Per Second) during your FaceTime calls to optimize the video quality depending on your Internet connection. This allows for better quality video if your wifi connection can handle it. In the same way, it will lower the quality of the video if you’re running FaceTime on Edge using My3G for example.

By default, the original FPS is a minimum of 15 and a maximum of 15 as well. Face Time Mod brings the minimum down to 6 FPS and the max to 30 FPS.

There is one big downside to this app though: both iPhones must have Face Time Mod installed for it to work.

Face Time Mod is available for free in Cydia under the http://repo.modyouri.com repo.

What do you think of it?

    So my question would be…

    If both users don’t have the Face Time Mod installed, does Face Time completely not work, or only the Mod on the one phone that has it?

      So does that mean if both phones ain’t got it installed it won’t work at all or will it just use the default method and not make any difference in picture quality.

    I didn’t notice that much diff on wifi (maybe isn’t fast enough?) but 3G much much better :)

    • Austin

      I did not see a difference on wifi either but I haven’t tried it on 3G. There is definately a difference on edge though. Very choppy

    Why couldn’t they make the min 15fps and max 30fps? That way the quality would at least be the same as stock, and better for those with a faster connection. Just wondering…

    @z cause (i think) when u have slow connection there are lags or u can’t hear the person properly. At least for me it’s like this. This way FaceTime at least works when connection is slow

    Ok, my face time always freezes on me and my girl, I guess just 3G. Will this mod correct it?? Please let me know. Thanks

    Ive tried the FaceTime mod recently… it was a good time and the quality definitely improved. For those of you who want to try to FaceTime with me you should check out http://ftfun.com its a free FaceTime community with users on constantly… do it up ladies and gentlemen.

    Looks like they removed the app from the source. I downloaded it. But when I tried to look for it again on my wifes phone, it wasn’t there.

    Where is the app? Why was it removed?

  • Goofygreek

    Yep. Got the app on my phone earlier today. Now it seems to be gone. Tried it with my friends phone and it disappeared.

  • Saice

    Uhmm I still see it. Do u guys type FaceTime or face time? U should put space.

  • Jnicholson1437

    I did search by face time with a space. Of course it shows up on my phone where I have it installed but it’s gone when I look for it on my wifes.

    Looking forward to a better quality video too.
