Forces YouTube to open the player in the theater mode (full-width mode) even if you are logged out

Image from store Theater Mode for YouTube™ (large player view)
Description from store This extension forces YouTube to open its player in the theater mode (theatre mode) by default, even if you are not logged in. You can simply switch back to the normal mode by pressing the button in the player or pressing the "KeyT" shortcut, however, on the next visit, the player will be in the theater mode again! The extension does not have any options. It just works. Note that I am not using CSS or JS tricks to simulate theater mode. This is the actual theater mode that YouTube offers. To have this option in the incognito mode, you need to allow the extension to be active on this mode. How does it work? The extension uses two methods to make sure the player is in the wide-screen mode: 1. Set the relevant cookie on each visit 2. Press the relevant button when the player loads.

  • (2019-01-29) Talwick: Great little extension - works just as described. My only wish is that it could be toggled on/off (perhaps by clicking the extension button and it greying out), as I don't always use it and have to go to the extensions window to disable it.

  • (2018-09-15) Comrade Winston: Doesn't work anymore.
  • (2018-09-10) Matthew Bickley: Worked fine for ages, then I think one of the most recent Chrome version (68 I think) broke it's functionality sometimes. Sometimes it will load in theatre mode, but sometimes not. Any fix coming soon?

  • (2018-03-04) Gustavozera: Bem Interessante. Porém agora fiquei meio de olho, pois o "Gabriel Ninô" disse que ele pede para poder ter acesso ao Histórico.
  • (2018-02-22) Jake Hart: Worked for me. The FAQ explains why this extension needs permission to "read browser history:" Why do these set of extensions need to have permission to view user's browser history? Please explain Well, the actual permission that I use is "storage". This permission is required to store internal preferences of these extensions. Unfortunately, the description that is shown to the user is somehow misleading. Note that you can always verify permissions that an extension is using by downloading the package and extract it into a local directory. Open "manifest.json" file to see the actual list of permissions. For these set of tools, there should be no data sending to an external server at all, neither there should be any access to local data. They only configure YouTube player before page load. That's it!
  • (2018-02-13) Pedro Feitosa: Doesn't work at all.
  • (2018-02-13) Gabriel Ninô: Doesn't work and requests access to my history, which shouldn't be needed.
  • (2017-12-11) Jessica Anne: Does not work with my smart tv, turns the video screen black.
  • (2017-06-06) Stefan Makus: does what it says and does it well with no slow down in the performance of videos due to it being used
  • (2017-06-06) Bruno Borges: Does the job.
