Description from store This plugin adds a checkbox to the YouTube Subscription Feed that allows users to toggle whether or not they want watched videos to show up in the feed. The aim of this is to make navigating the subscription feed much easier and intuitive.

  • (2020-01-13) Laura Timmel: Currently, this only seems to work on the Subscriptions page.So far, that's the only page where I've seen the icon to mark videos as viewed, and viewed videos are definitely showing up at least some other pages. I love the mark-as-viewed feature, but I wish that there were a way to set a threshold for how much counts as having seen the video (especially since the YouTube app takes muted autoplay as you scroll through your feed and sets that as your view amount, so videos that autoplayed silently for a few seconds would presumably be hidden by this extension). And, of course, I wish that it worked consistently across YouTube (everywhere but your History page, basically).
  • (2019-12-27) Blazer02LS: So far it has been working as advertised . Would like it even more if it didn't have the group boxes but just had the videos all together. I don't really need the today, yesterday stuff. Perhaps have that as a settings option? Only seems to work in grid view though. Perhaps that is why some say it doesn't work at all?
  • (2019-11-01) Rafael Miranda: Very good!
  • (2019-10-08) Leporello the Goldfinch – Birdtaming Tips & Tricks: Finally a solution that works! Hides watched videos splendidly. Thanks, developer!
  • (2019-09-27) Josh Gavroy: I love this extension. I use the subscription feed almost daily and this makes navigating it so much easier.
  • (2019-09-12) Michael Hasenstein: This does NOTHING. Even when I click "Hide" the video keep reappearing - the exact same issue I already have with plain subscriptions. It seems this extension only duplicates what Youtube already provides - and since the Youtube "Hide" algorithm occasionally completely breaks (worked for me for a while than not at all, they keep breaking it) what's the point of this extension??? An actually _useful_ extension will have to keep its own list of watched videos in local storage and work with video URLs as identifier, and be completely independent of any broken built-in Youtube functions.. Okay then it only works in one browser (unless you add some "cloud" option). This extension only seems to "work" when you don't need it (because the Youtube "Hide" option already works for you).
  • (2019-08-28) Scott Joshua: doesn't work - running on a mac..
  • (2019-08-27) Райан Андерсон: Мечта моя! Спасибо!
  • (2019-08-25) Ts Garp: Doesn't do anything. I've triple checked the settings, I've let it run for over a week now. It doesn't work. IT DOESN'T HIDE WATCHED VIDEO'S. I could not find any button to hide video's either. Makes me wonder the positive reviews....
  • (2019-07-15) Jeremy Golem: Works pretty much as intended. Only complaint is that it hides videos that haven't been fully watched yet. Kinda makes it unusable for me, but overall pretty good extension.
  • (2019-07-13) Rehman Amjad: My favourite Chrome extension!
  • (2019-06-16) ClontarfX: This extension needs to be advertised more. It does exactly what I've needed an extension to do, cleanly, and simply. But it took me *AGES* to find this. Please, extension author, spend some time spreading the word about this. I reckon some people are missing out...
  • (2019-06-02) Human: Не работет
  • (2019-06-02) Qt R: Doesn't work! Forgets watched and hidden videos half an hour ago shows them again and again. Unusable small button to hide videos which hides itself you accidentally play the video and not hide it. Rubbish
  • (2019-03-20) That One Guy: Actually shows me content from youtube
  • (2019-02-12) Adrian Chen: Great extension. Makes managing subscriptions much easier. What would be better is if you could filter channels!
  • (2018-12-13) Gnivirht: Awesome. Thanks.
  • (2018-09-26) Rob Ze: Hides watched videos! Amazing!
  • (2018-09-12) Лохотронщики - клоуны: Great!!!
  • (2018-08-23) Aleksander Kowalczuk: Greatly helps with backlogs .
  • (2018-08-18) Plasma Phi: Works ok, but will not stop after 1 month and keeps finding older and older vids to hide. Would get 1 more star from me if this is resolved.
  • (2018-06-01) Tobias Freibeuter: You have to manually select the videos you want to hide.
  • (2018-04-11) crashtor: Brilliant, a working extension with the latest youtube update
  • (2018-03-25) Ilya Eliseev: After Subscriptions Grid For YouTube this extension really best :) nice work!
