When you are watching a YouTube video, you can browse for another video by minimizing the video you are currently watching. For that, you can enable it by dragging down the video currently watching; then, the native YouTube Mini Player displays the video as a banner at the bottom of the screen. But the video is tiny and a bit cut by the ratio. BigYTMiniPlayer is a jailbreak tweak by iOS developer Galactic Dev. It allows you to redefine the appearance of the YouTube mini video player for better readability of the current video. Significantly, the tweak shows you a slightly larger video on the right side of the screen instead of the usual banner look.

Once installed, it provides no options to configure, and the tweak is natively activated after installation.

One more thing is when you decide to minimize the currently playing video and close it, the mini player will be a bit larger, and the Close [X] button will be much easier to tap.

This is especially since this tweak was released a while ago, but it does not support the latest YouTube version. But, at the request of the jailbreakers interested and loved the tweak, fortunately, its developer has updated it to support the latest YouTube version.
