- (2020-09-09) shiyang paul: 然并卵
- (2020-09-08) Sam Rodrigues: I loved it, it was something I was looking for, to load the page and videos faster, since there is no execution of many things and elements. I would put a maximum score if I saw that the developer left the video in a larger window while he’s not minimized. Option to adjust the screen size of the video using the mouse or something like that. Getting better to watch while he’s not minimized. Thanks for that extension :)
- (2020-08-27) Megan Omerta: A great tool for watching YouTube and the visualizer feature provides a rare feature that is glaringly absent from the rest of Chrome... FIVE STARS!!!!!
- (2020-04-04) Hosa Dokha: I cant like a video or subsribe to a channel unless I give instantview access to my account. ok. BUT IT DOESNT GIVE ME A LINK OR A POPUP TO GIVE IT PERMISSION. so there is no way i can give it access!!.. Pls make an Opera version!

- (2019-11-27) Bill Gates: Thank you for updating it for recent youtube changes.
- (2019-11-25) Laura Timmel: This looks like it's probably a great extension, but I just can't get it to work. I tried it in different tabs, on different videos, with my other extensions turned off, and with various different settings, but as far as I can tell, it's not doing anything...
- (2019-10-24) John Mitchell: This is a great extension! I never liked the idea of either having to open a separate tab or replace the page I was on to watch a youtube video. This eliminates the extra tab and keeps my page. My go to site is youtube and this extension is gold to me. Great job!!!!

it does not work anymore at youtube main page
- (2020-09-23, v:4.6.2) Keith: Half working now?
Your extension, all of a sudden, doesn't work on the home page of youtube for me. It works on my Subscriptions/Trending tabs when clicking on videos, but when I click on a video on the main page, they're fully opening now. Did something update? I've restarted my browser/PC and re-installed the extension.
- (2020-06-11, v:4.6.2) Dragon0697: Mini Mode
So the first time i clicked on minimize the mini player showed up but after closing it and doing that again it did not open but the video continued to play and the only thing to stop the video was to reload the page. But at that point the mini mode is completly broken untill I deaktivate and aktivate the addon again.
- (2020-06-09, v:4.6.2) M D: Can't control the video with keyboard shortcuts
I don't know if this is solvable, but when I open a video I can't control the video (pause, forward, backward...) with keyboard shortcuts. I mean the video window is not focused so you have to click inside the video before you can use space to pause the video or arrows/J,K to play forward and backward.
- (2020-05-31, v:4.6.2) 高橋浩: fail to sign in google account
Now I am facing a problem that the 'Instanview for Youtube' doesn't have access to my google account and I can operate nothing on it. It shows 'This app has not been verified yet by Google in order to use Google Sign In' when I try to sign in on this extension. Now I cannot rate videos or subscribe channels through this extension.

- (2020-04-14, v:4.6.2) Pccapso: Quota limit hit
Recently depending on time of day the video info is not pulled and there is a message about hitting a quota limit. I assume there is some sort of daily api call limit that is being hit or something similar. Would it be possible for a user to generate and use their own api key to avoid this in future (assuming i am not completely wrong on the cause)? regardless thanks for the awesome extension and timely updates!

- (2019-10-28, v:4.5.3) Jawho Asha: Problems with my main google account (thumbnail click opens new site)
Hi there seems to be a problem when using this extension with my normal google account. There it only works occasionally and mostly opens up the videos normally despite clicking at the thumbnail. There is a similar extension to this, that has the exact same issue. I tried deactivating all other extensions and even switched to vivaldi browser but even here it stops working as soon as i log in. It does work with a different google account. I already tried deleting all my google activities and youtube history but that didn't help. Any other ideas? Cheers
- (2019-08-01, v:4.5.2) Minh Lê Huy: Instantview on Google Chrome 76
Today I updated Google Chrome 76, but chrome://flags#network-services cant be used anymore, How can I fix it?
- (2019-07-27, v:4.5.2) Jawash Asalan: Removing advertisements
Do the ads support you? If not do you think it's possible to make them disappear? Several Adblockers are unable to.

- (2019-04-21, v:4.5.2) Alex Lion: Not Working on Brave.
The likes function does not seem to work properly on Brave Browser. Even after disabling the suggested flags. Another issue extension does not apply the "DarkMode" theme from youtube stays on the white plain background. this can be fixed as a temporarily solution with The Dark reader extension Or Stylish/Ect.

- (2019-03-24, v:4.5.0) M D: Doesn't show video's information
it all worked fine until the last update from chrome [Version 73.0.3683.86 / on windows 10], then it stopped showing the channel's name, likes, dislikes, comments. video displaying is still working fine. https://nimb.ws/n4OFdv
- (2019-01-08, v:4.5.0) Raiden Roy: Suggestions to make your extension more robust o_Ô
Hey Dev, I really liked the functionality of this extension, its quick & time saving however, there are loads of other enhancements you can add to make it better, more powerful & robust. 1) let the users see how many likes and dislikes the comment section has, right now your extension doesn't show likes & dislikes count. 2) let the user see/browse unlimited comments. as of right now we can only see 14 comments :( 3) Add a playlist kinda feature this feature will come handy if a user wants to watch 10 to 20 videos together without interruption they will select all the videos they want to watch and then your extension will let them watch all of the videos together. 4) ambient like back lighting cinema effect for e.g. https://www.mycinema.pro/i/cinema-lights.jpg & obviously, all the above features will increase userbase as well.
