  • (2023-11-12) Jim123bcb HD: This extension works great, it does what it says it does. I wanted the regular video format because I like it more and it's easier to do things like look at the comments, as well I'm able to scrub through the video which you can't do with the current YT shorts format. Whoever made this extension, thank you!
  • (2023-11-08) Peter W: I wanted to use this extension to convert shorts to regular videos. But it blocks all shorts. It says there is an option to change this behaviour, but I couldn't see how to access any options for this extension. (This is in Chrome 118.0.5993.118 64-bit - it seems to have changed the structure a lot, so maybe the extension needs updating for this version.)

Сел писать, но додумался проверить, вдруг есть) И все, прощайте шортсы, прощай рабство! Интересно, как я теперь буду прокрастинировать?

I go on YouTube to find how to fix a door and next 4 hours later i see myself watching a YouTube short of a guy on his Lamborghini chasing a guy who is trying to leave after hitting him cause he did something to his pet goldfish in ww2 at the battle of Stalingrad in 1945 after the Japanese successfully defeated the red army in the great war of 1868. This extension solves that problem thank you so much.

  • (2023-09-07) Simon Liimatainen: Works perfectly at the moment (September 7, 2023). The "hide shorts video" (play as regular video) is great. Just what I was looking for. Updates are usually needed from time to time, when YouTube makes changes to their systems, so if it breaks occasionally that's completely understandable.
  • (2023-09-07) Cena Bale: Thank you
  • (2023-09-06) Name: Дякую! що створили це розширення. Shorts забирали багато часу(

  • (2023-08-29) Vlaka X: as of 29.8.2023 STILL doesn't do anything. shorts STILL showing up. Don't waste your time.
  • (2023-08-29) Paul B.: Actually works to completely hide the detestable Shorts, once you figure out how to access the strangely hidden second menu (the three buttons on the first menu). Thanks for a nice piece of work!
  • (2023-08-28) Robert -: doesn't work anymore. (works only if i logout out of youtube) youtube redirects back to /shorts/ so it creates an infinite redirect loop
  • (2023-08-28) JustinnR Zellet: Simple, effective.

  • (2023-09-16, v:1.4.1) Tuna Can: Don't hide shorts from search results
    The extensions seems to hide/block YT search results of shorts. If this is an intended feature, I hope it will be made optional.
  • (2023-08-28, v:1.4.1) Evan: other options to customize link
    Hey there, as youtube is beginning to roll out anti adblock policies, I've found that changing the "watch?v=" to "embed/" skirts around their adblock-blockers (for now). However, it is kind of tedious to do this manually for all the videos I watch, and I'm not quite smart enough to implement this myself so an option/some advice on how to automate this would be cool
  • (2023-08-22, v:1.4.1) Тайлер Дерден: Пон
    Есть Исходник на гитхабе?
  • (2023-07-25, v:1.4.1) 86 abaile: Completely hides short.
    Hi I wanted this addon to treat shorts as normal videos, but now it only hides them completely and I can't fine the option to turn them back on.
  • (2023-06-29, v:1.4.1) Sakit Kumar: Facebook
  • (2023-06-16, v:1.4.1) Robert Bromberger: Shorts are broken.
    When I try to play shorts on desktop. The page keeps reloading. Shorts on my subscription page don't showup. It looks awful.
  • (2023-06-14, v:1.4.1) Nick: v1.4.1 didn't fix the problem
    Absolutely nothing has changed. Shorts are still displayed.
  • (2023-06-14, v:1.4.1) カワラ: Short videos won't be hidden
    It is said that it was fixed in v1.4.1, but short videos were displayed on the "subscribed channel" page.
  • (2023-06-10, v:1.4.1) Murilo Geraldi: The place where Shorts is hidden now has an empty spot in the "subscriptions tab"
    After the update that YouTube made to make the thumbs bigger in the "subscriptions tab", the Shorts are still hidden, but there is an empty spot where another normal video could be. This detracts from the experience of having a less polluted tab :(
  • (2023-06-06, v:1.4.0) Radittsu Bardock: doesn't work anymore
    hi. since today, it doesn't work anymore :/
  • (2023-06-05, v:1.4.0) Dark Aspect: Not blocking shorts when entered youtube.com/shorts
    This extension works perfect when we click on the short through homefeed or search but it doesn't work when we directly enter youtube.com/shorts on the browser please fix this asap
  • (2023-06-05, v:1.4.0) Kelsey Martin: extension broken
    shorts are showing everywhere again
  • (2023-06-02, v:1.4.0) 4Wadim: Ads on new tab after opening chrome
    Sometimes when I open Chrome, I get a new tab that opens some extension's website, like an advertisement. It doesn't happen everytime. I would like to know if your extension is the cause of this.
  • (2023-06-02, v:1.4.0) Ignacio Miranda: Showing shorts again
    It starts to show shorts in the feed, it was working well some weeks ago. Browser: Brave v1.52.117
  • (2023-05-16, v:1.4.0) Sam Locicero: Support for the minimized player in the corner
    When you click Add To Queue on a video the video will go into a minimized player in the corner of your youtube page and you can click the Expand button (or "i") to go to the actual video. However if the first video you queue is a short, the Expand button will not work. If you first queue a normal video OR if the queued short has already been converted to a normal video, the Expand button will work but if the short has not had time to get converted into a normal video, the Expand button will not work
  • (2023-05-14, v:1.4.0) The Ghost Of Fred Zeppelin: Doesn't work anymore
    As of today it doesn't work anymore, shows shorts everywhere
  • (2023-03-24, v:1.4.0) Ktigre: Hides shorts and doesn't show as a video without refreshing
    I have turned off the shorts blocking, but it still hides the shorts row from the homepage. Also when clicking on a short it now still shows it as a short unless you refresh the page at which point it will show as watch?v= instead. This is in the current version of Edge chromium running version 1.4.0 of the addin. I'm not sure when this started as I had uninstalled when it started blocking shorts as I didn't know about the toggle. I just tried reinstalling it and found the block toggle but the other two issues cropped up.
  • (2023-03-15, v:1.4.0) Janne Andersson: Shorts not showing up in subscription
    Shorts not showing up in subscription flow anymore, just the channel of the poster. I'm using PC and Chrome
  • (2023-02-26, v:1.3.4) Ezy Bruker: doesn't work on mobile version of the site
    doesn't block under the m.youtube url I am currently using kiwi browser on Android and when I switch to desktop version of the site it works fine but it breaks when I use the normal mobile version of the page.
  • (2023-01-10, v:1.3.4) Saad Jokharash: Doesn't work
    This Extensions doesn't word anymore on my device, i don't know why
  • (2022-12-08, v:1.3.3) D K: shorts feed autoplay disable?
    I would like to be able to browse the shorts feed page and have it not autoplay any videos. This does not seem possible on desktop. Also, it would be useful to be able to disable the 'scroll-assist' that centers the video on the screen. My mousewheel is already sensitive enough, and this 'feature' is super annoying.
  • (2022-11-14, v:1.3.3) Gustavo XB: Also block Youtube TV
    They could block Youtube TV. There are also a lot of shorts there. It's a very bad! https://www.youtube.com/tv#/ Can you please do!
  • (2022-10-03, v:1.3.0) Chris: Stopped working
    The plugin is no longer working as of today. Videos are playing as "shorts" again.

  • (2022-09-17, v:1.3.0) Sam Cajampa: Block low views recomendations?
    Hi, Shorts block is a great tool but i need a block for a bunch of low viewed videos youtube have started recommending me recently. It is just random garbage with almost zero interaction. And have nothing to do ever with what i usually watch, it is just random. I have no idea why yourube started recommending me this garbage but it just won't stop, i have done the not interested thing hundreds of times but the algorithm keeps giving me garbage below 1000 views video in the 3 or 4 slot in the right side all the time. Please add a feature that blocks for example every video with under 1000 views.
  • (2022-08-13, v:1.2.1) Ghaith Khlifi: idk what to put here XD
    can you plz add like a button to open the shorts in a new tab where its displayed like a normal video (like for example im browsing shorts and i see a video i want to be displayed in the normal player i just press that button and it does that, preferably in a new tab)
