- (2021-02-11) Ian: I don't really understand why you would want this, but its a cool thing to experiment with. I personally only need the quality tab for better quality and its a little confusing for a person only wanting to watch a Youtube video with good quality. however, the fine tuning is also precise and its easy to understand what the addon is going to change, and it (kinda) fits in with the website. ill give it a good rating but if you dont like complicated stuff, this is not for you.
- (2020-11-22) Houston: OK this add on is WAYYY better than I thought it was going to be, I am seriously impressed. Like I don't think the description images really convey all the things it can do. There's TONS of settings/features here and they all actually work too. A lot of extensions are bugged out and janky but this seems like it was made by someone who actually knows what they are doing lol. PLUS this extension is OPEN SOURCE, on github, and only needs access to the modify data *on youtube* - unlike most extensions that want unlimited permission to read/modify data on all websites. Between being open source and only affecting youtube, the risk of this extension being malicious/harmful is incredibly low. You can't say that about most extensions unfortunately........ anyway, I must encourage you to download this. If you're on the fence just download it. Make sure you refresh your page a couple times after you first install it. And try pairing with HueSync if you have philips Hue RGB lights in your room!
