  • (2023-03-04) Erkan Akkaya: Video duraklatıldığında; can sıkıcı video başlığı, ilerleme çubuğu gibi kontrol panelleri elınan ekran grüntüsünde görünmeden kaydetmesiyle tam aradığım eklenti. Çok teşekkürler. Atayabileceğimiz bir klavye kısayolu da olursa çok iyi olur.
  • (2023-02-20) Athena Foronda: When testing this extension on the most recent videos, it comes out a broken glitchy image.

  • (2022-10-08) Ramblroff: ①画像ファイルとしてではなくクリップボードに保存できる ②キーショートカットがある この2点が素晴らしいが、スクリーンショットをMacのシステムのものと見比べると明らかに色が鮮やかに変わってしまっいる。その点だけが致命的。
  • (2022-09-16) Tom Hundt: AWESOME, removes all the Youtube controls/overlays nonsense at the bottom, leaving just the screen image, unadorned. Just what the doctor ordered. My new favorite plugin (this week). Some reviewers say it doesn't work for them. It does work for me (2022-09-16 Chrome 105.0.5195.125 (Official Build) (x86_64)) on MacOS 13.0 beta). I have it set to output JPG files. Will keep testing :-)
  • (2022-09-11) k: It is super convenient to save a screenshot with a single key. If you can set any destination to save to, you can win an Academy Award.
  • (2022-09-09) Avitha Nigam: It sounds like this used to work up until recently. It doesn't work any longer and the screenshot just comes out as a black box. If it could somehow be repaired, it would be a lifesaver though
  • (2022-09-06) алла алла: недели назад Я давно искал что-то подобное..потому что обычный скриншот из Windows меня не устраивал.. а это расширение удовлетворяет всем моим потребностям.. спасибо разработчикам.Я очень благодарен этим людям, которые создали это расширение! Расширение очень удобное и не нужно искать в пк приложение для скрина. Мне оченьпонравился способ делать скриншоты в формате HD и не тратить время на это вручную.Я благодарен разработчику за это чудо всем своим друзьям я уже рассказал и им понтравилось.
  • (2022-08-27) Zadyr Moon: LOVE YOU!!! Thank you so much. Very helpful. You made my day. I don't understand the angry reviews here, maybe competitors. Anyways, if the Screenshot option/buttom doesn't appear in the botton of the video (in the reproduction bar), just deactivate the extention and reactivated again in the Extensions Settings of the browser, then go back and refresh the page of the YT video and you are all set.
  • (2022-08-23) David Murphy: doesnt work

  • (2022-03-09) Roni Studio: Your app is very good for Youtube videos, but I found "BUG" for Youtube 360' Videos. When saved, it worked, but the image didn't match the projection. The image should be equirectangular but the result is not. Here I have a photo of the result and the source video: result image: https://ibb.co/bryhTcj Youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7FipgMFPQg Expected results. https://ibb.co/TYPNkCQ
  • (2022-03-03) jean-philippe Leclere: Efficace!

  • (2022-02-05) Makarobu: I've always wanted to take some high quality screenshots on YouTube without trying to wait for the right moment and press the print screen button. Now it will be easy. Screenshots can even go up to 8k!
  • (2022-01-28) Fabián Sanhueza: Es la mejor aplicación gratuita y libre de anuncios para capturar pantalla en Youtube.
  • (2022-01-21) Kevin Cardinale: This is a life saver. I follow tutorials for computer programming and I can't see the infinitely small numbers. Boom, use this, put it in gimp, blow it up, boom bam bing, big as day, clear as the morning sun. kdsshhhh got em! And it fits so perfectly on the video as if, it was meant to be there. Would recommend to everyone. 10/10 SHAKAAMA of youtube.
  • (2022-01-21) Bi- lociraptor: Yep, works perfectly. If there's something you really wanna screenshot on Youtube, like a moment in a specific game, but can't play it yourself, it works perfectly. It fulfills its purpose, and doesn't seem bad in any way I've discovered. Easy, and greatly satisfied, 10/10.

  • (2021-12-27) Rebecca Robinson: Used it forever and loved it, but now the screenshot filenames no longer contain the name of the video they're taken from :( Still, many good years together with this extension!
  • (2021-12-20) CooingSlinky11: for some reason this no longer seems to work, but when it did it was 10/10 amazing.

  • (2021-10-25, v:2.3.2) Ravi Chander: Video Names Missing
    Screenshots used to include the name of the video, and also the time stamp. On October 8, 2021 the names were no longer saved. This leads to many duplicate file names, and becomes annoying.

    Great application, but lacks the function of setting a stamp on the screenshot with the video title and time of the current position. Please add the ability to select such a function in the options!
  • (2021-01-17, v:2.3.2) Viktor Liashenko: Can you add button variations?
    Can you add different buttons for "Take screenshot"? I'd like to make button smaller, like small download icon instead word "Screenshot". Also will be good, if I could change position of button. Change saving folder for screenshot will be good too. Thank you!
  • (2020-10-23, v:2.3.2) Gorog goroG: Implementation: changing folder

  • (2020-08-11, v:2.3.2) Matheus Ferreira: Save as JPEG
    The extension is almost perfect. I just have one suggestion: is there a way to put the JPEG as a saving option? It would save a lot of time here, because as PNG images are too heavy I need to convert every file manually. Thanks.
  • (2020-07-29, v:2.3.2) Gerald Pierre: Why do you need access to the history?
    It looks like a perfect extension. Could you please let me know why you need access to read the browsing history?
  • (2020-05-30, v:2.3.2) Maks Develov: Saved file name
    Great extension! I would like to recommend deleting the word “screenshot” in the file name. This word is of no use, but only extends the file name.
  • (2020-05-27, v:2.3.2) Patrice Jay: Problem with the Screenshot Youtube app
    I cannot get this app to work. After downloading it, I restarted my chromebook and at the chosen point in the youtube video I have clicked on the red screenshot icon. I have adjusted the settings so that the screenshot is saved to file and on the clipboard, There is no .png file in my image folder or the downloads folder.
  • (2020-03-19, v:2.3.2) Ali Albassami: Stop working
    Hello, Thank you for the great app. It worked well in the beginning, but then stopped working. I'm not sure why. Your support would be highly appreciated. Thank you.
  • (2020-02-25, v:2.3.2) Jeeha Kim: Copy to clipboard
    Hitting the Screenshot button immediately saves a PNG file to harddisk but it doesn't copy to clipboard (Ctrl+P into Paint doesn't work). Can this be done?
  • (2020-02-03, v:2.3.0) Ed Chapkowski: Broken after update
    The latest update seems to have broken the extension in chrome and brave. Hitting the screenshot button doesn't do anything. Is there something else to edit or allow for this to work again?
  • (2020-01-12, v:2.2.2) SANKALP SHUBHAM: Change path of saving the images
    If it is not still provided, could you please add this functionality. Thanks a lot for the extension.
  • (2019-04-15, v:2.1.0) AveFenix: Toggling from Screen Shot options
    Great extension...I just discovered this feature on goggle chrome and want to know how to revert back to saving the screen shot and a small list is created vs opening the screen shot. I dont know how to revert back to the default settings.

  • (2018-10-09, v:2.1.0) Molly Whuppie: Compatibility Issue
    The extension is clashing with the extension 'Iridium for Chrome' I think. The 'Screenshot' button only appears after I disable Iridium. It stays there once I re-enable Iridium, but only until I restart my browser and then its gone again. I know its probably not a priority for you to fix compatibility issues. Just letting you know there is an issue that might explain why it isn't working for some people.

  • (2018-06-02, v:2.0.3) David Henderson: Unstable
    Every time I leave the Youtube web site I lose the app. I have to turn it off and on several time to get the app back. I have even had to uninstall it and reinstall it more that once. I like the app but it is just too unstable.
  • (2018-05-26, v:2.0.3) ausroy087: 100 screenshot limit
    I think there is a 100 screenshot limit then you have to manually rename the files as you save them..? Can you increase this limit >100 please? Thanks and great add-on!
  • (2018-03-27, v:2.0.3) Nicholas Kopp: Extension deletes itself
    button for extension is removed from youtube after random intervals
  • (2018-03-19, v:2.0.3) Gustav Zollern Mäkinen: JPG format
    a great extension, except that it should save the image in JPG format instead of larger PNG.
