Image from store Show YouTube comments while watching
Description from store ---------- Want to read comments while you watch a YouTube video? Tired of scrolling or pausing just to read comments? We got you. Comments now appear to the right of the video player, and suggested videos are moved underneath the video player. ---------- [Updates] Thank you so much for your comments! I do read all of them and appreciate your feedback. 1.0.4 * Fixed the extension breaking due to YouTube layout changes. Thank you all for your quick bug reports. 1.0.3 * Fixed a bug where comments would only swap after refreshing the page. * Migrated to Manifest V3 (new thingies from Google) before it becomes mandatory. Will be monitoring closely for bugs.

  • (2023-11-03) Ebrahim Khalil: Found it. Thanks for creating this. This is what I was finding.
  • (2023-08-21) Shubh pathroliya: Works pretty good but could be better if it had an off and on button. I feel that the option to go back to normal youtube should still be present in the extension
  • (2023-08-16) Elijah Chahine: This is great!! but one thing though, that I hope can be fixed. when I try to split screen and favour one app over YouTube like (Discord for example) the suggested videos seem to disappear, until I refresh the page. It isn't that big of a deal but if it could be fixed this will be absolutely perfect for me
  • (2023-07-18) J Barron: What a great idea! I was searching for a floating miniplayer so I could watch and scroll comments but this is so much more of an elegant solution! 5/5
  • (2023-05-19) Hiếu: rất tốt : )
  • (2023-04-29) Starvurt: it sucks, won't work at all
  • (2023-04-06) Warden Le: Extremely inconsistent. Layout messed up when playing queues or playlists
  • (2023-02-28) Arman Orazbekov: It would be great to have the option to have the "Add a comment" area FIXED AT THE TOP when scrolling comments. Thank you!
  • (2023-02-14) Chris A Figaro: Works ok, but when it comes to live streams, it goes blank.
  • (2023-02-09) Tashiba Lampkin: I like it.
  • (2023-02-02) Alter: Works good but one thing I dont like is when I click "show more replies" the page sends me down and I have to scroll up again to read the replies
  • (2023-02-01) Patrick Uriarte: Awesome extension! Great Job! Feature Request: It would be cool if there was a toggle for swapping between having comments on the right side of the video panel and the default location.
  • (2023-01-16) Ali Abbas: Exactly what I was looking for, and it doesn't interfere with theater mode. 5 stars One request: Would love the option to have the playlist planel stay fixed at the top so I don't have to scroll to the top of the comments when wanting to access the playlist panel.
  • (2023-01-09) Gerdami des Bêtes: I wish I could toggle On/Off from the toolbar.
  • (2023-01-07) M Musab GAVGALI: Sinema modu açık değil iken (yani varsayılan küçük modda) "yorumlar" videonun sağ tarafını kaplıyor. Düzeltilmesi gerekiyor. Eğer düzeltilirse 5 yıldız ile değiştireceğim. Teşekkürler
  • (2023-01-06) Igni Aard: Love this one! Works great. YT had this feature for few months then removed it, but it made me look for an extension like this. Also I like having to scroll to see recommended videos. Makes me procrastinate less :D
  • (2022-12-26) Rama Drian: This works really well and instantly became one of my favorite extensions. Please make one for Firefox as well, more people need to experience this
  • (2022-12-08) Damian Bell: Great extension one of my favourites, would love a Firefox version too as I find myself using that more than chrome now, I'm sure you'd get lots of downloads!
  • (2022-12-05) Coin Card: GOOD.
  • (2022-11-30) Excellent. Excelente. Estupendo. Génial. It works properly
  • (2022-11-21) Rahat M: Really love this. One thing I would recommend, We need an option or an arrow to expand and minimize comments so that we choose between comments and recommended videos on the right side. Don't like the fact that all the recommended videos are on the bottom side.
  • (2022-10-26) Dale Foster: A must have and extension for YouTube modifications. Ty Dev, and are there plans for a Firefox port? I'm wanting to change browsers before manifest v3 hits and this is one of the few features I cannot find a replacement for
  • (2022-08-08) Average Alternate Account: Stopped working this morning :( Edit: Thanks for the fix, this is definitely my favorite extension!
  • (2022-08-06) Alex Castle: Not working anymore EDIT: Works again
  • (2022-08-04) Jafet Alvarado: Edit: FIXED! Amazing extension. This is the way it should be in the first place.
  • (2022-08-04) aGift4u: Not working as of today. I will comeback and change review when its fixed. IT'S FIXED!
  • (2022-08-04) Roger Nobre: thank you for the quick fix, browsing comments on PC without this is no longer possible for me lol
  • (2022-08-03) Samuel: Working again. Love the extension.
  • (2022-08-03) Koon: It's working once again after the recent YT layout change and your fix. Thank you for the free extension, it has improved my YT-watching experience by miles. I hope the recent one-star reviewers do come back and update their stars.
  • (2022-08-03) 程光謇: 最近已经失效,希望开发者及时更新
  • (2022-02-03) Louie McDuck: Nice extension, but is there a reason why the extension needs access to the user's browsing history? seems unnecessary.
  • (2022-01-18) Simone X: Exactly what I was looking for. Works perfectly!
  • (2022-01-13) Ben: Hell yeah, this is what I've looking for. No jump when timestamp clicked and no scrolling down to see comments
  • (2021-12-27) vtastek: great work. Some feedback - False positives(bible verses) - Scroll to comment
  • (2021-12-24) Jazzy T: Works as intended. I can do with on my mobile phone. I'm surprised Google hasn't made it like that on PCs.
  • (2021-12-13) Riaz Ali: I read many comments, and can't imagine using YouTube without this anymore. The only thing that could be improved is when loading a video page sometimes (cuz of YouTube's spf.js) the comments load at the bottom like default, instead of on the side, then reloading required. Was wondering if I should try testing adding a mutation observer, example: (new MutationObserver(check)).observe(document, {childList: true, subtree: true}); function check(changes, observer) { if($('player')) { /* do side comment code */ } )})
  • (2021-11-03) Alex: scrolling comments does not work
  • (2021-10-26) Chris Vydas: If only it worked on mobile devices, otherwise I would rate higher.
  • (2021-09-24) Foong Yihao: Works great, but it only loads on the second refresh load which is quite annoying. Can you please fix that if possible?
  • (2021-09-14) TheLobitzz: Probably the best out of all the extensions out there doing the same thing. The only thing I noticed is that the width of the comments div is too small when watching in high-resolution monitors.. If it was a little bit wider (or even adjustable), this would be perfect
  • (2021-09-13) Mensageiro Universal: Great extension, just a suggestion: You couldn't add an option to prevent infinite comment scrolling, like this Youtube Redux extension? It would be perfect! Thanks. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/youtube-redux/mdgdgieddpndgjlmeblhjgljejejkikf
  • (2021-09-05) Асылбек Ибраев: Работает. Теперь можно смотреть видео и одновременно читать комментарии. Спасибо за это приложение разработчикам.
  • (2021-08-20) Billy Braga: I have to refresh the page after loading a video because youtube doesn't do a real navigation, so your script doesn't fire.
  • (2021-08-11) Just You: Almost perfect! I would love it if instead of swapping the comments section with the video suggestions they should both be in the same area except you can toggle with a push of a button whether the comments or suggestions are shown.
  • (2021-08-08) Drew Haycock: exactly what i wanted, can scroll comments while watching the video. simple but effective
  • (2021-08-06) Takuya Matsuda: Hi Tanguy! Great plugin. I also write script to do same thing, but your plugin is working better. Perhaps it is better that user's comment input form should be fixed at the top:)
  • (2021-07-23) Luke Povolny: Legend. For ages I was opening two windows of the same video side by side in order to watch the video and read the comments at the same time. Had a random thought of maybe there is an addon so I checked and sure enough you've made one. Works great and is such a quality of life improvement
  • (2021-07-19) Teresa Pacura: Amazing extension! It does exactly what it promises to do.
  • (2021-07-05) xD Lights: Works great. Please dont sell to a turkish malware company like the last extension I had that did this feature.
  • (2021-06-09) 如天空般湛蓝: 希望加一个滚动条,会更好一些

  • (2023-09-29, v:1.0.4) Wei Le Zheng: I think something messed up
    It still working, but previously, like a month ago, you were able to see the comments on the right and suggested videos at the bottom Now, it shows all comments+suggested videos on the right side
  • (2023-02-02, v:1.0.4) Patrick Uriarte: Toggle Between Comments on Right and Default Location
    It would be cool if there was a toggle for swapping between having comments on the right side of the video panel and the default location.
  • (2022-07-30, v:1.0.3) Riaz Ali: coding question
    I read the full explanation you gave about how YouTube manually uses history to detect page changes... I found a userscript that adds a Download button to YouTube video pages, and it seems to work consistently... I was wondering if you could tell me if this script uses history to detect page changes or if it uses another method: Tampermonkey y2mate seb mod - https://gist.github.com/Plasmoxy/a08929066cdc4e11c77721165a5c2a7c
  • (2022-07-30, v:1.0.3) richard garcia: Comments not appearing.
    Everything is on and checked, uninstalled and reinstalled but the comments are no longer on the side no matter how many times i refresh haha. thank you.
  • (2022-07-30, v:1.0.3) くっしー.: 動かなくなった
    おそらく昨日、今日あたりで正常に動作しなくなった。コメントの位置が変わらない。 Maybe from yesterday ot today this doesn't work!
  • (2022-07-29, v:1.0.3) YUN太郎: 動きません
    日本語でごめんなさい。回答は英語でOKです。 私の環境では、この拡張機能が正しく動作しませんでした。 動作することもあります。何が原因でしょうか?
  • (2022-06-29, v:1.0.3) אור הושמנד: Scrollbar
    Can you add a scrollbar to the comments?
  • (2022-05-07, v:1.0.3) Billy Braga: Add support for shorts
    It would be nice to have the comments on the right in the shorts section
  • (2022-04-21, v:1.0.3) App Debugger: 🔵Bug that the chat field on the real live page becomes narrower.
    There is a bug that when viewing a live broadcast during real-time live, the width of the chat box becomes narrower.   This software is perfectly useful,but it would be cool if this point could be fixed.    ※However, this phenomenon does not seem to occur in the archive of a live broadcast.    This phenomenon occurs in a live broadcast during a live show.
  • (2021-11-19, v:1.0.2) makoまこりすと: 🔴Bug
    if we use this chrome extension, we have to reload the page. please make this bug fixed.
  • (2021-09-28, v:1.0.2) Mensageiro Universal: Infinite comment scrolling
    You couldn't add an option to prevent infinite comment scrolling, like this extension? It would be perfect! Thanks. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/youtube-redux/mdgdgieddpndgjlmeblhjgljejejkikf
  • (2021-09-28, v:1.0.2) Mensageiro Universal: Thumbnail Size
    Can you increase the thumbnail size of recommended videos, just like the ones on the homepage, and when we search for something? Thank you.
