Image from store Always Show HTML5 Video Controls
Description from store HTML5 video tags have their "Show Controls" attribute set to false by default. This extension looks for video tags on most webpages and sets the "Show Controls" attribute to true. Does not take action on the following sites to prevent conflicts with proprietary video controls: youtube.com netflix.com vimeo.com dailymotion.com hulu.com twitch.tv liveleak.com vine.co

    Hi there ! I don't know if you recieved my other request, I removed them since I found a solution after all ^^ I have another request thought, could the addon do the same for Gifs ? Thanks much, in any case ! Very useful.
  • (2021-01-23, v:1.14) AttALiUs SciUS: Can you Make the App unmute videos and remember last sound volume position?
    Some sites not only they do not show the control bar, but have the video muted by default also. One goo example is 9gag. Can you make the app unmute the videos and remember the last sound volume position? Thank you, very much.
  • (2018-08-14, v:1.14) Hansen W: This extension stopped working
    I noticed that it stopped working. When videos play, the UI does not hide and the scrobbler stays on screen and the Play button is waiting even though the video automatically starts playing behind it. All it does now is obstruct a video.
  • (2018-08-05, v:1.14) stramner: Hiding controlls
    Would it be possible to add setting that would allow me to hide the controls? Currently, they reappear. I'd like to have them on by default, but when I want to disable them, I want to stay them disabled.
  • (2018-02-22, v:1.14) R Schreinert: Please review EpicFail.com
    This does not appear to work on EpicFail.com. Please look into it!
  • (2018-01-11, v:1.14) Gary Orman: Doesn't work for my website
    Hi, I display a video in HTML5 on my website when a visitor clicks on a separate playbutton. For some reason, the controls don't display automatically (even though I've set the controls attribute: <video width="316" height="302" controls>) I installed your extension as a workaround to give to visitors who want the controls to show up all the time. But it doesn't work. You still have to right-click on the video and select Show Controls. Any ideas?
