  • (2020-01-27) Abhishek Kumar: Totally mandatory for me. It's the first extension that i always install. Highly recommended.
  • (2020-01-26) Steve B: gotta like it
  • (2020-01-25) Iam Hero: great...

  • (2020-01-23) PankajBhardwaj info: great
  • (2020-01-23) 那留餅士: block機能がうまく動きません。 動画サムネイルに現れる×ボタンが効く場合と聞かない場合有り。 登録済みのエントリー(チャンネルまたはビデオ)の削除ができません。 別のblock専用拡張を使っているのですが、もっと良くなればこれだけで済みますので期待しています Firefox用も欲しいです。 追記 「チャットのリプレイ」が邪魔な場合に「折りたたみ」にすると動作不良になるのでやってはいけません。Normalにしておきましょう。
  • (2020-01-23) Andrew Henderson: Unfortunately, the reason I installed the extension (reverse playlist feature) didn't work. It only reversed the playlist panel, and the next/previous video buttons, but when the video reaches the end, the autoplayed video is the unreversed next video. Rating it 3 stars because, even though for the functionality I wanted, it's 1-star, as it doesn't do what it claims it does, the other functions seem to work, so it seems wrong to 1-star it. Should probably remove the "Reverse video playlist" from the features list, though.
  • (2020-01-21) Queen Asriel: Works as described. Very nice. I hope that one day these features are built into YouTube. I really like the ability to change the color of the progress bar. I currently have mine set to pink.
  • (2020-01-21) 离枫: 超级好用的,但是可惜的是,打开之后视频只有最高1080P了,4K选项没有了
  • (2020-01-20) Buraz: Very functional! Working very vell!

  • (2020-01-19) Lazar Gugleta: Clean and functional
  • (2020-01-18) Omar M. Challan: nice
  • (2020-01-18) IceClaw: Its a Good extension but with Allow 60 fps in videos off it still would have the video set to 60 fps quality but with rotating it is awesome
  • (2020-01-18) Alvin Chong: Really great replacement for Iridium. Good work!

  • (2020-01-16) Sofia Narine: I love this extension and i will definitely use it from now ! It's really make YouTube look better than before .
  • (2020-01-15) Ole Magnussen: reverse playlist button dosent work, also its impossible to reverrse a playlist longer than 79 videos, and if you try to repeat the playlist to get to the top of the playlist it dosent do that it just starts playing the next videoin the non reversed playlist even if it looks like the playlist have been reversed.
  • (2020-01-15) Vlad Iftime: Finally, I can see the last seconds of the video without wondering what's behind the recommended. Thank you for doing smth that a billion-dollar company cannot afford to do for its users. Good job!
  • (2020-01-15) mr_rusik: Блин добавьте уже хоть кто нибудь возможность свернуть левый блок меню с трендами, подписками и остальным, до узенькой полоски, как оно например сворачивается для экономии места при маленьких разрешениях экрана, сколько расширений и тем перелопатил нигде такого нет, это же первое что хочется сделать в этом убогом дизайне ютуба

  • (2020-01-26, v:2.1.41) Trent Bates: Legacy Mode is stuck on
    Hi, I tried out Legacy Mode and now it is stuck on. I toggle the switch and it changes back after the screen refreshes. I had it in Youtube's built in dark mode prior. I'm not against using your extension, but I'd like to know how to change it back to what it was before I tested the extension. I have tried a few things such as uninstalling and reinstalling the extension, etc. Thanks!
  • (2020-01-26, v:2.1.41) L Svensson: Blacklist
    How does the blacklist work with channels and videos? does it make them not show up in recommended or what?
  • (2020-01-25, v:2.1.41) Innocuous Barrel: legacy
    STILL cant use the legacy youtube option. still turns itself off every time i refresh or open a new youtube window
  • (2020-01-23, v:2.1.41) Sen Howler: Youtube comments.
    If I edit a comment on Youtube that has someone's name in it (a direct reply to them that automatically adds their username at the beginning of the reply) then "/videos" gets added to the end of their name. I suspect this is due to setting the "videos" page as the default page when I view a channel. So, like "@mbmirkwood" becomes "@mbmirkwood/videos" And another "/videos" gets appended every time I edit. Is this something that can be fixed?
  • (2020-01-22, v:2.1.41) Yaro Kasear: Reverse Playlist doesn't work
    How do I get the reversing of playlists to work. I installed this, turned on the feature, and literally nothing on Youtube changed. Is there documentation for how this is supposed to work?
  • (2020-01-21, v:2.1.41) Tado Samardžić: disable 60fps
    I have disabled "allow 60fps" but majority videos that i watch still reproduce 60fps video at resolutions 720p and up. My current laptop is slow and can't reproduce 60fps videos without stuttering, so 30fps option is helpful. From time to time this option is not working ( I guess youtube makes patches). Please investigate this issue and if you can fix it. This is still the best all-in-one Yt extension.
  • (2020-01-21, v:2.1.41) Joonyeong Kim: Full screen of horizontal video for vertical monitor
    I'm using a vertical monitor as secondary monitor. It is possible to see 'vertical video' as a full screen in it, but the originally 'horizontal video' cannot be full even if when I press the rotate button. I wish the rotate button also has a feature of expand the rotated video as a full screen at the vertical monitor.
  • (2020-01-19, v:2.1.41) Alvin Chong: 2 problems I encountered
    1. Always show progress bar The shown progress bar stops updating after a while and you need to move mouse to call up the full playback control area for it to update. 2. Full window player size On opening a fresh Chrome window Youtube forgets the theater mode setting which breaks the extension's Full window player size function. Had to install another theater mode memory extension for a workaround.
  • (2020-01-18, v:2.1.41) Alvin Chong: About the header hover
    Is it possible to make the header hide more? Move it up more so less of the bottom show.
  • (2020-01-17, v:2.1.41) Zhen Zhu: Question
    Hi, I was just wondering if it was possible to disable suggested videos at the end of a youtube video? If not, that would be a great feature. Thank you

  • (2019-12-22, v:2.1.32) Jonatan: Hide startpage content
    Hey! I love your youtube extension it really improves the experience. It would be amazing if it also would be possible to hide the start page (all recommended videos etc.). Is this a feature you have considered adding? I would like to be able to use youtube just like a search and watch service instead of having all these distracting videos recommended to me on the startpage. There's no youtube setting to hide them currently, I've looked. Best/J

  • (2019-12-10, v:2.1.32) Junayd Mahmood: Back to 1x button?
    Hey there, could you please make a button on the player speed slider that automatically brings the player speed back to 1x? Currently there's a lot of fiddling with it which makes it hard to dial in on a slider. Maybe have little buttons that go to 1x, 1.25, 1.5, 1.75, 2 and so on? Would just make things easier rather than slider. Thanks!
