  • (2021-09-01) Brandon Loehlein: Good extension, two minor complaints. Logo for the channel duplicates in the top left of the screen and you can't hide chat in theater mode which is a bummer. Otherwise very solid. Let us hide YT Chat and it's 5 stars for sure.
  • (2021-08-22) RootBeer Slayer: Great extension, but it occasionally pulls up chat from the previous live stream that I've watched. Not sure why...
  • (2021-08-15) Victor Calvo: tirando q de vez em quando buga e a tela apaga eu não tenho o que reclamar
  • (2021-08-15) Yami Shoumetsu【Shin'eitai】【KiryuKai】【SSRB】【Kronies】: ah finally found an extension that do what I really want....I hate how youtube doesn't maximize all the available spaces once your monitor goes above 1080p and this extension just does it perfectly...
  • (2021-07-28) Dan: Great! can you make it scorlable so we can see the video description and comment section. thanks
  • (2021-07-18) Данис Валеев: Есть один большой минус. иногда при выходе из театр мода не выходит, появляется чёрный экран и пропадает интерфейс и ничего не сделать, чат при этом остаётся. Также при переходе в театр мод и обратно режим чата сбрасывается на "интересные сообщения"
  • (2021-07-15) Chiffonkek: Makes Youtube livestreams a lot more bearable, just tall/narrow layout which places live chat underneath the stream like Twitch does currently. Thanks for extension!
  • (2021-07-04) Léo de coupigny: Exactly what i wanted
  • (2021-05-17) Afonso Ricardo Pereira: It's good, but needs an option to hide chat
  • (2021-04-12) Kanti: Does exactly what it says. A good, niche addition. Suggestions: 1) Why are 5 megabytes of 'screenshots' included in the download of what should be just a tiny .js file? Put your screenshots on the store page, not my hard drive. 2) It would be nice if you could resize the chat. Either click+drag, or via some settings.
  • (2021-03-31) Chu Tuyền: same 90% twitch chat. I love this, thank you!
  • (2021-03-10) BBS: Hi can you please to move the chat to left so that languages (like Hebrew) writing from right to left can watch the live broadcast with the chat
  • (2021-03-09) Mars: works exactly like expected. no idea why Youtube hasn't implemented it on its own, it makes the experience much more enjoyable.
  • (2021-03-03) Matt Hoffman: Thank you. Google decided on the stupidest layout ever and you finally fixed it. Thanks.
  • (2021-03-01) 陳姵沛: Nice but sometimes it will have some bugs Normal video don't have chat should be like original theater mode or add a switch can turn on/turn off more convenience BTW it still is a great job Please get it better than better :D
  • (2021-03-01) 王以德: so nice
  • (2021-02-24) Zubkavadarba: Наконец-то нашел
  • (2021-02-21) Izu: Exactly what I was after because Youtube seems pretty awful at supporting chat properly. Works fine in Edge out of the box, too.
  • (2021-02-18) Noleen: 👌
  • (2021-01-28) RODEGG: Doesn't work for me at all I have it installed on Google Chrome.
  • (2021-01-20) Ludo: Works great so far. I have no idea how Youtube can think their chat implementation is anywhere near acceptable.
  • (2021-01-17) JJ Gaming: Really good extension. Before this, I had to watch in minimized if I wanted to interact with chat.
  • (2021-01-11) Wyatt Cooper: When using youtube's default view, half of the screen is taken up by empty margins on either side of the player. When using theatre mode, you can't even view chat. This extension makes up for youtube's UI shortcomings perfectly.
  • (2021-01-03) Timothy L: Neat for livestreams. Though I hope that in the future there will be a toggle button to turn the "Twitch" mode on and off, as I do not want that feature sometimes if I'm just watching a video which premiered with a live chat that is pretty irrelevant.
  • (2020-12-30) Giovanni Guerra: this has made YouTube live streams bearable thank you sooo much, echoing other peoples sentiment that it would be nice to have a hide chat option in theatre mode (full screen is not 100% the same as this would allow to navigate tabs etc.), also would love an option to move the chat left/right of the stream as well. either way as is its still great!
  • (2020-12-26) kono itay da: SO GOOD
  • (2020-12-20) Samuel Rousseaux: Works exactly as designed. It bothered me so much not being able to have theater mode AND the chat, I guess it's solved !
  • (2020-12-20) Thousand suns: F11 and T is good to go
  • (2020-12-17) Славий: Респект
  • (2020-12-17) Charlie Roberson: This is perfect! thank you!
  • (2020-12-15) Old Greppler: it works as intended
  • (2020-12-11) Deoplo: Twitch theater mode is so much better for livestreams, so this is a great extension to have for anyone watching youtube livestreams.
  • (2020-12-08) Guck Foogle: Thank you, been really missing this on youtube. One suggestion, add a shortcut to Esc to exit theater mode, I'm sure there are a lot of people who use Esc to get out of theater mode on twitch.
  • (2020-12-04) Patricio Panico: Exactly what I was looking for
  • (2020-12-02) Usernametwo: Not perfect, as with twitch, using a tall/narrow window places the chat underneath the video while this extension doesn't support that. Nor does it become video only on really small windows. So it isn't too compatible with, say, tiled tabs in Vivaldi. When it works the way I want it though, it's pretty useful and it's the one feature from Twitch that I miss the most when watching YouTube. Good extension.
  • (2020-11-27) Anon Anon: Perfect.
  • (2020-11-25) John Burger: It is exactly what you'd expect, a twitch-like theatre mode for youtube streaming. Perfect extension for me as I watch a lot of streamers on youtube nowadays.
  • (2020-11-08) Tado T: Thank you so much for this extension! I absolutely detested how small the video window needed to be to see chat, and this fixes that completely. I just wish there was the ability to hide chat in theatre mode, just for the occasional time I don't want it.
  • (2020-11-04) Abdul Ahad Zafar: Finally something like twitch's theater mode, much needed on YT!
  • (2020-11-04) Luciano Padilla: Really good, but if I leave Theater mode on in the next stream I try to enter it goes to the normal theater mode and If I try to use the normal mode in bugs out and I can only see the chat. The only way to solve this is to refresh the stream. Its kinda annoying but I can live with that, the extension is pretty good
  • (2020-10-29) Aidan Ubaldo: literally everything i needed lol
  • (2020-10-22) Thomas L.: A must have for watching Livestreams, but sadly there seems to be no way to switch to normal theatre mode. This is particularly annoying on videos that were premiered and thus have a live chat replay. Usually for those, I want the normal theatre mode because I'm not interested in the chat replay, but the only way I found to do so is to disable the extension alltogether. Also a button to hide chat like the actual twitch theatre mode has would be very useful.
  • (2020-10-16) Leo Kicklighter: Indie devs do what evil corporations nintendon't. Beautiful.
  • (2020-10-09) Fred Nordin: Really love this extension. As someone said "perfect time for the Doc" And I agree! We are used to have twitchtv, so we want something similar when watching our favourite streamer. This is A must have. [BUG?] Just one thing tho... Sometimes if I switch from theater mode, To normal and back to theater, the chat jumps down.. And sometimes the video just dissapears?? Have to Refresh the page(F5) to get it back..?
  • (2020-10-06) Julius Caesar: A Must Have.
  • (2020-09-27) Ciel Lexci: Great! The only thing I'd like to see different is to not have chat reload when entering theatre mode. YouTube chat has to go through the entire timeline of comments to get to the right time in the video if it's an archived stream. Other than that it's fantastic!
  • (2020-09-25) Marcin Nawrocki: This is exactly what I was looking for!!! Youtube layout is so bad, this extension is AMAZING!!!!!
  • (2020-09-20) Михаил К: I searched for theater mode with chat for Youtube and I got just what I wanted.
  • (2020-08-14) Mumin: Game changer. I hated using YT before this. thank you Dev.
  • (2020-08-07) Lance Krasniqi: Just in time for the Doc. Nice work.
