Change YouTube(TM) videos volume and seek with your mouse
With Mouse Controls for YouTube™ you can change the volume and seek with your mouse. NOTE: I had to change the permissions for this extension to run on every website. Mostly because I want to have this controls on other websites that use the same video player as YouTube. If you don't want that, you can change the permissions in the extension settings in the extensions section and only allow youtube.com or whatever. === HOW TO USE === * !!!IMPORTANT!!! Make sure to go to the settings page and setup the extension first thing. * After installing the app, refresh your YouTube™ page. The controls should be active now. * Hover over the player and use your mouse scroll to change the volume. * To seek click the middle button once, then scroll. this will move your seek forward or backward in time. === NEW RELEASE === v. 1.2.4 - Bug fixes I created this extension because I personally needed this feature.

- (2020-02-06) Magor József Sándor Hegedűs: Awesome Plugin! I was looking exactly for this Functions. The only thing i cant use the change between volume and seek functions. I tried all combinations which i could: - click the middle button, then scroll - click the middle button and hold, and scroll - click the middle button and hold + move the mouse, and scroll... Any ideas for this Issue?
- (2020-01-23) Tobiasz Watolla: its great and very useful when i want exact volume like 1% but theres a huge problem. For some reason it mutes my youtube site completely, i dont know why it happens. It never happend when i was using laptop but now when i have a desktop pc it just doesnt work
- (2020-01-01) MasterSmileGer: Works 50% of the time. And when it works it goes 10% steps up not 5% like i set it to.
- (2019-12-08) Jay Kay: Middle Click to Switch Between Volume & Seek (Seek & Volume) have been NOT working for many months. Can you please fix it
- (2019-12-06) ardalan mansouri: Dear Cristi, well done for your great job. The only issue I encountered is regarding the seeking sec options. when I choose 1 sec in the extension option, wheel scrolling skips 2 sec instead of 1, and by choosing 2 sec in the option menu, even very tiny mouse scrolling seeks 4 sec, and etc. So it's not possible to seek forward/backward for odd numbers. Would it be possible for you to fix this too please?
- (2019-11-30) Механизмы радости: Great extension, best for my needs! But! After last update to 1.2.4 the Mouse Controls does not work correctly with active ANY AdBlock Extention, for example: - AD Guard https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/adguard--adblocker/bgnkhhnnamicmpeenaelnjfhikgbkllg - AdBlocker Ultimate https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/adblocker-ultimate/ohahllgiabjaoigichmmfljhkcfikeof - Fair AdBlocker https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/fair-adblocker/lgblnfidahcdcjddiepkckcfdhpknnjh 1. Despite the fact that in the settings the adjustment step 1 is set, the volume changes with step 2, if I set step 2, the volume changes with step 4, etc. 2. The middle button does not work to switch to seek mode. If I set the default seek mode in the settings, the seek works, but does not switch through the middle button to the volume control mode. And seek work like volume too -- step 2 if set 1 etc. If I completely disable AdBlock extensions, the Mouse Controls works just fine! Reinstalling the extension and new configuration does not solve the problem. Chrome to Version Version 78.0.3904.108 (Official Build) (64-bit) *Is it possible to fix it and are you going to try to do it?*
- (2019-11-29) Evanrevvin: This extension will add: &tag=tvshowreminders-20 to the end of amazon extensions. It is an affiliate link which breaks some amazon links. But also just super not cool to add it without permission. Please don't support this extension. It didn't use to do this.
- (2019-11-17) Dimitrija Popovski: It keeps doubling the volume sensitivity. If I set it to 5, when I scroll once it goes up 10%, if I set it to 6, it goes up 12% etc. Edit: It was fixed, it now works as it should be.
- (2019-11-16) Leo Keogh: Great extension but I have a weird bug in Google search results when this extension is active: when I click on an amazon link in the search results it opens amazon 404 page because the link has the param "&tag=tvshowreminders-20" ... chrome version 78.0.3904.97 (Official Build) (64-bit)
- (2019-11-09) ArtDor: It does not work sometimes when I click outside the browser. Amazon links in google search do not work (when I click on a n amazon product link in google search, It redirects me to amazon "Sorry we couldn’t find that page").
- (2019-11-09) JK 92: I just found out that this extension has been the cause of so much frustration for me. When watching a video on YouTube and opening a new tab, especially when having 2 separate browser windows open, it will mute the tab where the video you're currently watching is, until you manually unmute the tab again. But I have to admit that the problem could be on my end as well, because I am in fact using Microsoft Edge Chromium, and not Google Chrome, hence the 4 stars and not lower. Because other than the issue I'm facing, the extension seems pretty great.

- (2019-10-25) Konstantin KotSk8er: fix volume memory bug. 🙏🙏🙏
- (2019-10-03) Sagun Manandhar: It would be great to have it work only with filter like middle mouse or right mouse. You already have middle mouse filter but it's useless because it's secondary. Primary will be used without filter. If we can bind both primary and secondary with filters that would be great. Then we can scroll the page as well without moving the move away from the video frame. Also would be great to have it work on all video frames not just in youtube. Like in on of the firefox addon..
- (2019-09-24) Nathan Wilding: Was working great and my most used Chrome add on. Now I have to remove it. Use to work correctly and scroll wheel would go 5% like I set it to, followed directions and will not update or save my changes in settings. It now will only go 10% and that is not the purpose for me. 5% is perfect and without that working, I cannot see myself using this again.
- (2019-09-23) 山田ハヤオ: This extension modifies links to Amazon to place ads. And this ad is not working properly and will break the link. To make it work properly, delete lines 266 to 277 and 261 in \odhhfodnkaidhocaaaokdofhkoiahpbn\1.2.4_0\scripts\injected.js
- (2019-09-22) Owen Leadbetter: Love this extension worked great for a while but for some reason what ever i set the volume sensitivity to it doubles that value. For example my default sensitivity is 5 so when i scroll it will go from 40% to 45% but for some reason now it goes to 50% and it works for every value. So if i put it on sensitivity of 2 it will go up in multiple of 4? not sure why it is doing this but would love if you can fix it.
- (2019-09-20) Dan Hammer: Was a great addon for adjusting youtube video volume until latest update which is VERY scary and states. "Read and change ALL your data on the websites you visit" Why the hell do you need ALL data from ALL websites i visit? This is a simple youtube ONLY video addon, now you want sensitive information from everyone that uses this? What malicious activity are you trying to get into?
- (2019-09-20) Marcello E: Does exactly what it is supposed to do
- (2019-09-20) mango BCY: I use this extension very useful thankyou. But somehow This morning it suddenly begins to seek exactly double than I configured. I configured seek sensivity as 3sec → it seeks 3*2=6sec And I aso wonder, I read the reply below You said It can be worked on other website that embed youtube videos. But I don't have that experiecne at all. Do you have an example that works on other website?
- (2019-09-19) Geoff Busby: This extension recently started asking for elevated permissions such as the ability to read and change all your data on the websites you visit. I don't see why a YouTube specific extension would need global permissions, so if you value your data privacy don't uses this extension.
- (2019-09-13) オルソンフィリップ: it keeps muting my youtube tabs when i open new youtube tabs i.e. middle mouse clicks..
- (2019-08-31) かるた: 音量をマウスホイールで操作したかっただけですが問題なく使えています！ 某アプリではシアターモードに強制変更されるバグがあり鬱陶しかったので乗り換えてよかったです Thanks for creating this app!
- (2019-08-01) Aleksander Janicki: Launching another video in another tab mutes frist tab for few seconds. When I open new video volume freaks, it's muted or ultra laud for 1-3 sec at the begining and then moves to my latest volume level. Also if my latest volume level is 30% and I use scroll to make vid lauder, it starts from 1% not from 30%. So I have to scroll trough all 30%. Definetely terrible.
- (2019-07-17) Νικόλαος: Εξαιρετικό! Με την ροδέλα ελέγχεις τον ήχο και τον χρόνο. Η εναλλαγή γίνεται με διπλοπάτημα (δεξί κλικ και αριστερό ταυτόχρονα) ή πάτημα στην ροδέλα. Στις ρυθμίσεις έβαλα 5% στον ήχο και 5´´ στον χρόνο για κάθε κύλιση.
- (2020-01-27, v:1.2.5) Brendan Trevett: Volume sensitivity
It would be great if the volume sensitivity was the same as the value selected, for example if i set it to 5, then it should go up in increments of 5
- (2020-01-03, v:1.2.5) Tomáš Frixs: Volume Scroll
Add more options for scroll-to-change-volume. There is only 1 option. Scrolling over a video. Make option to scroll-to-change-volume only over speaker icon.
- (2019-12-06, v:1.2.5) Anthony Zenrick: Volume control steps.
Volume control stepping shouldn't be an apparently arbitrary "sensitivity" selection. It should be percentage based. 1%, 2%, 5%, 10%
- (2019-12-04, v:1.2.5) Sakke L.: Version nr 1.25 out, but settings say 1.23
I tried removing the 1.23 and install the new 1.25 but still when I go to settings, on top of the page it says 1.23.
- (2019-11-09, v:1.2.4) ArtDor: Very simple fix for annoying problem
Amazon links in google search do not work (when I click on a n amazon product link in google search, It redirects me to amazon "Sorry we couldn’t find that page"). This extension appears to add "&tag=tvshowreminders-20" at the end of the url bar to amazon page. For example: https://www.amazon.com/Man-Who-Solved-Market-Revolution/dp/073521798X https://www.amazon.com/Man-Who-Solved-Market-Revolution/dp/073521798X&tag=tvshowreminders-20 https://www.amazon.com/Power-Cord-US-Black-PRONG/dp/B00023JDPI https://www.amazon.com/Power-Cord-US-Black-PRONG/dp/B00023JDPI&tag=tvshowreminders-20 To fix just comment out the "dom()" on line 261 of the scripts/injected.js file.
- (2019-10-28, v:1.2.4) Νικόλαος: Dont work properly
The addon works only when i start youtube from my first page. When i open a video from an other site or by opening youtube in another page it stops to run.
- (2019-10-02, v:1.2.4) Sakke L.: Scroll wheel for volume / right button + scroll wheel for seeking
Scroll wheel for volume / right button + scroll wheel for seeking. To get rid of clicking the scroll wheel.
- (2019-10-02, v:1.2.4) Sakke L.: volume and seeking choice made by hovering mouse over left or right side of the video
Could this work just by hovering mouse over one side of the video, lets say left half of the video is for seeking and right side is for volume and when you hover mouse over lets say left half of the video and by scrolling mouse wheel it seeks without needing to click the scroll wheel to choose the option?
- (2019-10-02, v:1.2.4) Sakke L.: Only volume or seeking works, not both at the same time most of the time
It started about a month ago, until that everything worked as it should. Almost all the time now only one of the options works (depending which one I have chosen to use as a default). Seldom out of the blue sky one video here and there happen to work with both seek and volume controls.
- (2019-09-21, v:1.2.4) Benjamin Dunlop: Volume Sensitivity Multiplied by 2
With the newest update the volume scroll as follows: (volume sensitivity) * 2 So 1 scrolls by 2, 3 scrolls by 6, etc. Please change it back to scrolling by the actual value it's set to; when you get the chance. Thanks
- (2019-09-20, v:1.2.4) Carl Quartermaine: Extension breaks Amazon Links from Google Search
When this extension is enabled it appears to be breaking Amazon.co.uk links when clicked through a Google Search (Possibly effects other sites also). The cause seems to be due to adding the tag "&tag=tvshowreminders-20" to the URL. When disabling the extension or limiting it to YouTube only this issue no longer happens.
- (2019-08-26, v:1.2.3) Vark Vark: Possible to add an option for a "set" or "default" volume level that each video will start with?
I often seem to experience an issue where I'm watching/listening to YouTube on autoplay and, without fail, there will be at least one or two videos that are so quiet compared to others, that I end up having to max out the volume just to hear anything. Then the video either ends more abruptly than I expected, or I just plain forget that my volume is maxed out, and the next video begins, whilst simultaneously causing my ear drums to make the conscious decision to end it all right then and there, and paint the walls of my inner ears with bits and fragments of themselves. If there was a way that each video could start at a user-set volume level (30% for example), regardless of whether I took it all the way up to 100% on the previous video or not, well that would just be the bees knees.

Volume control works on YouTube Music but doesn't update volume UI (default volume seekbar)
