You can pause, resume, stop, move to the next or previous tracks right from the popup without the need to switch to the YouTube tab. Note that if there is no open YouTube tab, by pressing the toolbar button, a new YouTube page is opened. When the player starts to playing the video, popup is ready.

Prevent the player from displaying annotations 4. Prevent the player from starting the next track when the current one is finished For more info please visit: http://add0n.com/control-center.html Logs: 0.5.1: adds a new feature: Buffer video without starting it 0.5.2: the popup is now displayed when there is an open YouTube page. No buffering functionality is improved. 0.5.3: Supports YouTube history

  • (2022-09-25) O M O: Zaznaczyłem aby video ładowało się podczas pauzy gdy wrócę. Wracam i buforowanie zatrzymało się na 120 sekundzie tak jak jest to oryginalnie. Rozszerzenie nie buforuje filmu !!! klapa totalna wirus jakiś.

  • (2022-02-20) zyfi: This extension did not do the one thing I wanted it for, buffering the entire video instead of just a few minutes. One star for false advertising.
  • (2021-11-20) Luke Bassham: My videos will now open paused rather than just run immediately without actually loading at all or allowing me to pause for 20 seconds while its at a horrificly low quality that jumps around cos my internet and my computer are trash, this extension is exactly what I wanted. That said, I can't set the quality to be 480, it only starts at 720 and doesn't seem to work anyway, it just defaults to auto, so that does need to be fixed I guess. I don't care though, I just hate that chrome makes youtube automatically start playing while firefox is sane and doesn't. 5 stars edit: Actually, incognito isn't working, despite being turned on in all the settings. 4 stars
  • (2021-06-13) ENDTASK: it worked 1 time ant then never worked again
  • (2021-02-07) Jaime Orlando “D474” Cazares Valdez: Update Below Original Review I have been through all of the YouTube extensions, and this is the one that does not come with bugs, glitches, and/or otherwise, horrid details that ruin the interface.
  • (2020-09-19) Benjamin Niskala: Not buffering more than original.
  • (2020-08-19) Лапшинов Вячеслав: It's great.
  • (2020-01-24) Jim Jang: youtube still keeps buffering
  • (2019-10-26) Max Triet: Buffering is still the same. Not working.
  • (2019-07-26) Johny Why: Could be the best YouTube control center. Because SMALL. But, Quality setting doesn't work. Also, doesn't work on embeds.
  • (2019-06-14) Tukoz Aki: I still have to manually set the video resolution after I set quality to 1080HD (or Best resolution) in the extension's pop-up. And repeat after each page reload (eg after a break) and for each 'Next episode' in playlists. Chrome OS here so I can't even try the extension on Firefox unfortunately :( Nice extension beside this.
  • (2019-05-09) Ax0l0tlz: Im having trouble locating the youtube center settings, there should be a gear beside my user but its not there. all my other settings are just regular settings for my account. can you please help me.
  • (2019-04-05) Streisand Effect: Wants to read my browsing history. No thanks.
  • (2019-02-13) Chris W: Horrible. Doesn't buffer videos further. Made it so that I couldn't see any comments or suggested videos, as everything but the video was just grey blocks. How is this even an extension? Literally does NOTHING that it claims to do.
  • (2019-01-29) Rodrigo Rodrigues: zuado
  • (2019-01-28) abubakar jamshaid: So far good. I don't have to move to youtube tab to play pause in office.
  • (2018-12-16) madrabbitwoman: I appears to not do anything it says it should - not worth it
  • (2018-10-17) Cumpre o que promete. A melhor extensão de controle do Youtube.
  • (2018-10-07) AndersoN FariaS: Não esta funcionando.
  • (2018-09-28) COtyFIKASZ FIK: nie dziala
  • (2018-09-13) TiK3v: Ça marche!
  • (2018-08-14) Marie G: Some of the controls have stopped working. F.eks: I cannot turn the video suggestions sidebar off anymore. Deleting and reinstalling did not fix the problems. I'll still keep the extension for turning off video comments which was my reason to get it in the first place.
  • (2018-06-27) Mike F.: No es tan buena, busquen Youtube playback control
  • (2018-05-17) Manas P: Love it to bits. it is so useful
  • (2018-05-02) AXEL 3000: aun no la exploro bien pero si es funcionl
  • (2018-03-19) Alex D: Just what I need for constant music stream at work! EDIT: Unfortunately, memory consumption of the addon is even higher than that of YouTube tabs I control. My work computer is not up to task of running it smoothly without compromising my workflow. Therefore, I have to disable it. Hoping for the update to temper memory consumption.
  • (2018-03-18) Farhaan Akhtar: wow nice control
  • (2018-03-14) THE STYLISH TRAVELLER 2: 现在不知道 一个星期后在看看
  • (2018-02-05) Alexandre Blanc: This is the best extension for manager youtube tracking
  • (2018-01-06) Mellow Fellow: At the time of writing, the option to buffer video without starting buffers only about 30 secs of video before stopping. Won't buffer whole video.
  • (2017-12-30) Danilo Santos: Resolution recommendation is not working
  • (2017-12-13) Rommel Lizondo: no va muy bien
  • (2017-12-10) Hammad Farooq: Love it. This addon is featured on firefox. Much better than all other popular youtube addons!
