  • (2023-09-21) Daniel Vespa: excelente, ahora si el video cubre todo el espacio de la ventana
  • (2023-08-28) Dumitru Daniel: Almost perfect, would be super nice if the search bar above would also auto hide.
  • (2023-08-28) Horace Torys: Author updated quickly after Aug. 2023 YouTube change, works great.
  • (2023-08-22) Joshua Gwynn: New CSS update has it overlaying weird with the channel name and right hand side recommended bar.
  • (2023-08-21) Quasar Raines: Awesome extension! Unfortunately, it stopped working recently for some reason. I really hope this is temporary because there are no comparable alternatives. Other extensions create additional unnecessary buttons and lock the player, so you won't be able to scroll the screen to read the comments while watching a video, for example. This extension takes advantage of YouTube's functionality without creating additional stuff and makes it work in a way that would be beneficial to most people. UPD: Thanks for the fix!
  • (2023-08-21) David: It's the best one and the developer is responsive with updates. Absolutely love it and kudos to the developer for the design/programming chops
  • (2023-08-21) nsverb: thanx for the great extension! works great (for those who had it broken in the last couple days IT IS FIXED! just force update the extension and restart the browser. helped me)
  • (2023-08-21) Jackson Yap: very helpful
  • (2023-08-21) Justin Pulliam: Best version of the improved YT theater extension, and quick updates when CSS or other changes from YT break them.
  • (2023-08-18) Tom: It's top tier, I wanted this functionality one day and behold some genius had already made it, and it works great (except when YT changes their CSS again). Top tier extension and the developer is a blessing thank you for all your work.
  • (2023-08-18) satyanand shreyash: It worked perfect for so long and now its changed back to the original theatre mode I tried reinstalling and it doesnt help
  • (2023-08-14) Clement Chia: This is amazing!!!
  • (2023-08-07) Rachel Tan: What i needed in my life! Thank God for this extension!
  • (2023-07-29) illuminae __: man why cant you make the pop out player have the same amount of functions as the scroll down one, with next video etc
  • (2023-07-17) Kenneth Sng: Life-changing. Now I can watch YouTube video while listening to work calls. Highly recommend.
  • (2023-07-02) Johanan Lau: Works great.
  • (2023-06-30) Rodolfo Apaza C.: Ty, now is working
  • (2023-06-30) 칠리새우: good good!! very good!!!!
  • (2023-06-29) Aleksander Abrashin: For the past few days, the extension has stopped stretching videos. Before that everything was great. Hope you can fix the problem.
  • (2023-06-28) Adrian J: It doesn't work anymore
  • (2023-03-24) Falcon: Its simple but absolutely amazing! Works perfectly!
  • (2022-12-28) Diego Mellizo: Just what I was looking for, it expands the video to fill the entire window but still let you scroll down (not like many other extensions).
  • (2022-12-12) Richard Sabo: Works great. Thanks!
  • (2022-12-09) Charmaine: Exactly what I needed my whole life
  • (2022-06-22) Joseph Vickers: THANK YOU. Been looking for an extension that takes up the whole size of my monitor and this works perfectly.
  • (2022-05-20) NOM: Works
  • (2022-05-06) zenhojin: Thank you for making this 🥰💖
  • (2022-01-26) Faheem Ahmad: much better! pleas update
  • (2021-12-05) Kapix: ive been wanting something like this for awhile
  • (2021-09-29) Ivan RS: I cant belive i had not heard about this extension before. It is basically the TRUE Theatre Mode, unlike YouTube's version, this actually fills the rest of the screen and maximizes your space. It should have way more downloads, so have another 5 star review, well deserved.
  • (2021-08-18) Manish Tomar: This Extension is amazing but i am giving 3 stars because it does not fill the screen on my macbook, maybe because macbooks have different screen ration then most of pc, still i would like the developer to do something about it Thanks.
  • (2021-05-24) Vaira Smythe: This is the one!!! Full screen but you just scroll down to get the comments, etc. I've been looking for this one again for so long! If you're looking for a fullscreen extension that isn't a POS this is it
  • (2021-03-01) Barnett Lee: Super cool!
  • (2020-10-25) Ritesh Garg: Maker of this extension is GOD!!!!!!!!!!
  • (2020-10-13) Jessie Ma: this is great. The "open all videos at [a certain size]" should already be an option/a feature in YouTube but obviously YouTube is too lazy to do it. P.S. the shortcut for enabling/disabling PiP is also so very useful.
  • (2020-10-04) long nguyen: hoan hao suat sac cam on ban..../
  • (2020-07-05) Agitated _: As others have said.. how theater mode should be done... kudos... now if u can only add the right-click in blank space to left of a video to enable and disable this feature would make it perfect
  • (2020-01-06) Oken: This extension is great! but it is a little hard to find because it doesn't mention in the description that it expands theater mode, and I was searching just for that on my new computer.
  • (2019-09-23) Den: Best One Out There!
  • (2019-09-12) Jie Hao Kwa: great extension
  • (2019-09-02) Awoo: Hello. Can it be made so title bar with menu, search and profile is also hidden? And video really takes entire screen space.
  • (2019-08-18) Raptor GM: efsane eklenti
  • (2019-04-01) amberisrad: this is exactly what i needed. works perfectly and has the one feature i need without all the other fluff i don't use. thanks!
  • (2018-12-01) Soham Ghosh: best thing ever.
  • (2018-10-12) Joel Choo: This is how YouTube should have done theater mode. Amazing developer
  • (2018-08-28) Katra Siena: Perfect! Thank you!
  • (2018-08-28) ghøstyz: finally found a good youtube theater fixer :)
  • (2018-08-28) Foul Lily: I usually dont leave reviews. But this absolutely worked as intended! My Chrome and youtube suddenly stopped using the whole screen, and the size wasn't being changed at all. After messing with sizes and resolutions nothing worked, but after going through a few extensions without success, I found this one and it totally fixed my problem. Thank you so much!
  • (2018-08-21) Tester Taggle: Good
