  • (2020-07-11) Danny Ponce: Muy Bueno, pero hay algo que me resulta molesto. El reproductor flotante, al acercar el mouse este cambia para modificar el tamaño del reproductor y eso causa problemas. No seria posible añadir la configuración del tamaño (en Pixeles) del reproductor flotante al resto de opciones en el menu pls? Ahh y una opcion para elegir si este reproductor se mantiene al retornar a la pagina principal (o una forma manual de cerrarlo)
  • (2020-04-14) Manivan MxHQ: BAN THIS CRIMINAL !!!! A scammer diverting youtube links to some crappy shady user channel called : https://www.youtube.com/user/null UNINSTALL and report if you have any sense !!!
  • (2020-03-31) The Karly: Добавьте возможность вернуть творческую студию на старый вид пожалуйста.
  • (2020-03-27) Felina Faerlaingal: Came here from the non-beta because the option to prevent autoplay upon starting a video stopped working a couple days ago on the non-beta This one work just perfectly, dunno what changed but dang good work
  • (2020-03-22) Dany peraza: perfecto
  • (2020-03-17) Onieyus Yojimbo: Great, but I cant figure out how the 'Blacklist' works/what its supposed to work...
  • (2020-02-18) ANRK ALT: works as advertised.
  • (2020-01-01) paps: mini player option still removes the player fully when you scroll down and back up
  • (2019-12-12) Old Geek: Custom playback speed shown in Player as Normal. Please fix
  • (2019-12-09) Ladrason: This has to be the best extension I've used so far. I don't say this because it's extremely useful (which it is) but because there are constantly updates coming in and the developer actually seems to listen when you report a bug and then tries to fix it as soon as possible. Thank you so much for making this extension and being just an absolutely awesome developer!
  • (2019-11-12) BJ Sully: Overall, it's a good extension but the 'hide annotations' function isn't working.
  • (2019-11-11) Stephen Wicklund: Works great! And since it's open-source, anyone can help improve the extension. In fact, 15 minutes ago I just submitted a pull-request which will add the ability for the playback-speed to be set anywhere from 0.1x to 16x, rather than the regular limit of 2x. :)
  • (2019-11-04) Таня Пушкина: У меня уже неделю как перестало работать, переустановка и бета версия не помогают. Просто не включается и всё.
  • (2019-11-03) Zeus Orion: Зачем испортили отличнейшее приложение? После обновления половина функций не работает, воспроизвожу видео с плейлиста оно мне воспроизводит предыдущие видео, я сомневаюсь что проблемма именно с ютубом или с моим пк т.к. отключаю приложение всё работает. Расширение очень удобное мне нравиться но т.к. сломалось не хочу дальше пользоваться. Позже обязательно установлю)
  • (2019-10-17) Александр Шпильчук: Супер!
  • (2019-10-14) 黄辰旭: Bug report of version 2.0 on chrome 78 beta. 1. 'fit to windows' at the appearance will hide the video, but the video continue to play. Hoping it works like version 1.30. 2. volume setting at the 'play' menu can't set to 100%, it's locked on 95%. 3. the 'codec h.264' & 'block_ads' selection doesn't work in the 'play' menu. 4. the font color of 'the stats of nerd' is black, it can't be read when the youtube(no this extension setting) open the dark theme mode. 5. mixer will have a closed video and it doesn't auto remove. 6. the github and thumb up button at the upper right corner is not working. Thanks you guys!

  • (2020-06-12, v:3.0-alpha7) Felina Faerlaingal: Bug in feature:
    In appearance: details If you choose the "extended" option, the comment then bug by displaying both a "show comment" and "hide comment" button, but the hide one doesn't work and the comments can't be hidden if shown. If you do not use "extended" for the details, the details under a video will not be available, the "readmore" option doesn't appear So it's a choice between bugged details section, or bugged comment section This happen in both Normal improvedTube and Beta improvedTube https://imgur.com/a/dzgZBDA

  • (2020-05-17, v:3.0-alpha6) Rolands: How to Blacklist?
    How do I blacklist channels? Opening the blacklist window I only have option to turn it off and on, with a button for videos and channels, however the channel and video windows have only text saying "empty"
  • (2020-05-01, v:3.0-alpha6) JoeBlu: Legacy Youtube Feature
    The Legacy Youtube Feature seems broken. It causes the pages in channels to infinitely reload (videos, playlists, etc). Once turned off the option seem to cause the same issue while watching a video until turned off. It causes issues in Incognito mode as well. Not to mention not being able to apply dark mode. Kindly see to this immediately. Thank you.
  • (2020-04-30, v:3.0-alpha6) TARDISES: pbjreload=10
    In the new layout, trying to watch any video in a playlist causes the page to load twice, with the second time adding "&pbjreload=10" to the url. This is happening on both the beta and non-beta versions of the extension, though I dunno if it relates to a particular setting or not.
  • (2020-04-18, v:3.0-alpha5) GabrielKnightz: Latest update has broken the extension / Legacy Youtube
    The latest update 80.0.3987.163 has broken the extension from functioning while using SafeScript. Alternatively, Legacy Youtube doesn't allow for themes.
  • (2020-03-23, v:2.1.40) Thiago Marques: An error occurred. Try again later. (Playback ID:)
    This problem is related to trying to disable autoplay in the player session and also in the playlist session ... YouTube no longer seems to recognize the option to start the video manually...
  • (2020-03-21, v:2.1.40) Luan Santos: Error when starting a video
    In version 80.0.361.69 (Official build) (64-bit) of Microsoft Edge Chromium every time I click on a video I have to press F5 because the message appears: "An error occurred. Try again later.
