  • (2019-01-05) sergcrack sergcrack: расширение работает но не всегда останавливает, есть лучше этого, называется YouTube Spacebar Pause
  • (2018-07-13) Ewen Goisot: ça marche encore moins bien que sans: parfois l'espace sert déjà à mettre pause, du coup les deux pauses s'annulent, du coup l'espace ne marche toujours pas, heureusement que la touche k existe
  • (2018-04-02) Makoto Akage: Не работает, пользуюсь https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/youtube-spacebar-pause/kelhcneanfdjfbneoljbgpahgfcacdhh
  • (2017-12-17) Paweł Derkowski: Doesnt work. Instead, disables spacebar during writing.
  • (2017-03-24) Анатолий Бондарь: На момент марта 2017 не работает
  • (2016-11-06) charlette vandiver: does not work on MSNBC, or anything else i use...
  • (2016-10-07) Benn O'Leary: not working...
  • (2016-09-24) John Martin: Ok that was just stupid. Whats the point if oyu can press spaces in your comments, idiot?
  • (2016-09-22) Ultimateuse Lost: Не останавливает.
  • (2016-09-18) Igor Ramon: Doesn't work with magic actions, I can play the video, but can't pause it afterwards, unless I click, exactly opposite to the point of the extension. Hope to get it fixed, been looking for an extension like this, the idea is AWESOME! but unfortunately didn't work :/
  • (2016-08-25) Alpha snaH: Just use the K key.
  • (2016-08-10) Christopher McCandless: doesn't work space bar keeps scrolling down no puses on videos, lame
  • (2016-07-29) Ross Cave: Can't use space-bar when searching or writing comment. Utterly useless
  • (2016-07-23) Lior: Yeah.. nope.
  • (2016-06-30) FloMuc: funktioniert nicht, es wird lediglich das Pausezeichen im Bildschirm angezeigt, das Video hält allerdings nicht an. Schrott
  • (2016-06-14) Alexey Klyuev: It's good until you need to write a comment or search for a video.
  • (2016-06-13) Paul Jackson: Can't use the spacebar when searching.
  • (2016-05-21) Daniel Canfield: It keeps the spacebar from working when you do a search.
  • (2016-05-05) Диванный местами спец: СПАСИБО ОГРОМНОЕ, автор я тебя обожаю!!! наконец-то при нажатии пробела ставится пауза а не пролистывается вниз страница, огромный респект!!!
  • (2016-04-28) XistenZ: As others have said, it takes over the spacebar completely so you can't search for videos or write comments. Huge flaw and a dealbreaker when it comes to using the extension.
  • (2016-04-23) Emery_: This extension is much better: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/youtube-spacebar-pausing/bkpindoeklkmcchcidehelnihghppcdg?hl=en
  • (2016-04-14) ahmet çavuş: Not Working
  • (2016-04-11) Jørn Tarald Högström: 2 stars for a good thought, It does what it says. Upon pressing Spacbar, it prevents the annoying scrolling and pauses youtube instead. But... when you enter text in the search field, guess what happens when you press space before entering the next word... ?
  • (2016-03-30) Calle Lindroos: Does what it says on the box. 5/5 would install again.
  • (2016-03-23) Oscar Hoyos: it doesnt work in full mode

Latest issues

  • (2018-09-26, v:1.1.0) Problem
    Can't use the space barre anymore in the searching section
  • (2016-03-12, v:1.1.0) Lance Atkinson: Please add left/ right button functionality
    I'd like to fast forward and rewind with left and right as well. Also, fix the pausing while commenting.
  • (2016-03-11, v:1.1.0) Max Chase: Triggers when I type in search box
    Even with only this extension enabled, typing spaces in the search box pauses the video.
  • (2016-01-28, v:1.1.0) Brandon Norvell: Small problem.
    When the video frame is in focus it makes the video pause for about half a second and then starts playing again. You have to click outside the video frame to get it to work, which defeats the purpose.
  • (2015-12-19, v:1.1.0) Chris Tucstwo: Space Bar Pause and Comments
    I'm sure you've heard this suggestion ad nauseum but I will respond either way. The main downfall with Youtube Pause is that is affect spacing words in sentences on youtube comments. I've read that it's affected by Adblock or Adblock Plus but I refuse to do away with Adblock over the convenience of the quick spacebar pause function you afford. FIX THIS and you will be a BAWS!
  • (2015-11-08, v:1.1.0) Kwon Jiyong: Doesn't work
    I can't search for anything now because i try to press space but it only starts the video
  • (2015-11-05, v:1.1.0) Haley Walker: WorksTooMuch
  • (2015-10-29, v:1.0.0) Haley Walker: Doesn't work.
  • (2015-08-16, v:1.0.0) Eco: Doesn't quite work properly
    It doesn't work when I first go to a video. I have to click somewhere on the page for it to start working.
  • (2015-08-07, v:1.0.0) Aksuos tm: Not work
    new interface in youtube. And now it is not work!
