Kiss the annoying "Video paused. Continue watching?" confirmation goodbye!
***Important: This extension doesn't keep the confirmation box from popping up. It only counters it. Such as un-pausing the video when paused and auto-clicking the confirmation box.*** Working on YouTube and YouTube Music! Known issues: When trying to pause with Media Keys, the video unpauses immediately. Work-around steps are: 1.Click "Pause" media key 2.YouTube NonStop resumes video 3.Immediately click "Pause" media key again 4.Video remains paused This extension will always remain free. If, however, it made your life easier in any way and you feel like giving back, you can make a teeny tiny donation here: https://www.paypal.me/ioannounikos Untested (but should work) when: Video is in fullscreen, Video is in miniplayer. If you have any problems, don't hesitate to drop me an email. :)
- (2020-02-27) A Simple Yam: Works perfectly! I was a little concerned downloading because of some of the reviews saying you had to have the youtube tab open, but I've had no issues with it for the several months I've been using it now. I'll have yt open in a different tab or even a different window and my music plays nonstop for hours! This thing has been a huge lifesaver, thank you lawfx!
- (2020-02-26) Henrique Corrêa: It does it's job, but pausing with the keyboard media shortcuts is very tricky... specially when the system is slow/lagging. Also, a "pause" button would be appreciated while the pause function isn't improved.
- (2020-02-26) Robert Gadau: Great app, i mean, really great app, it works also when yhe tab is not selected. I love it! Thank you for creating it, you guys, are the best! Cheers!
- (2020-02-25) Mark Mitchell: Tab was open and selected. Simply did not work. I am keeping it though, just in case devs decide to fix. Fingers crossed cause the pausing is just so inconvenient.

- (2020-02-19) Adam Wadsworth: Absolute genius plugin! It does exactly what i need it to do, which is circumvent the annoying Youtube pop up asking me if i'm still watching. The Youtube pop up does stay on the screen, but does not stop the playback of the video / video playlist. As pretty much every person who is seeking a plugin like this, they'll be listening to music on a likely minimised or hidden browser tab, so that doesn't matter. This dev deserves a beer!!

- (2020-02-17) Sven M: Funktioniert leider nicht wie angegeben. YouTube pausiert leider weiterhin.

- (2020-02-09) Kitsu Anne: I often play games like Dark Souls with Youtube in the background, so this is great when in the middle of PvP and can't change screens. It looks like it needs an update though, just started today but,Youtube is pausing videos again.
- (2020-02-09) Casual Alex: IT WORKED!! Finally I can hear music without that ridiculous thing appearing all the time. Thanks a lot.

- (2020-02-04) Giampiero Razzi: Continua sempre con il video in pausa solamente al tv SAMSUNG ..
- (2020-02-02) The Immortal Sun-kun: While it works, it also makes it so that whenever I pause the video while the tab is not selected using the pause key on my keyboard, it immediately unpauses. I have to pause it this way two or three times before it actually stays paused, which is very annoying.

- (2020-02-01) Svi Max: Radi ok
- (2020-01-30) Eric Navas Escobar: Super buena!! Al principio no me funcionaba pero si se abre youtube en una ventana sola no hay problema y funciona de maravilla, buena idea para quienes lo usamos mientras trabajamos.
- (2020-01-23) Syrian Soaper: Only works sometimes. I am not entirely sure how to make it work all the time. If my pc goes idle or if im using multiple programs or if i am in other windows it doesn't work very well with google. Works fantastic in firefox though but I mostly use google for youtube bc firefox isn't as compatible with youtube features since google now owns youtube.
- (2020-01-21) Britni Long: Plain and simple? It doesn't work. I'm still getting 'Video paused, continue watching?' after every 3 songs.
- (2020-01-20) Tad Lewis: Works while in AWS too! I have to work in AWS often and when changing in and out of the AWS window, YouTube was always pausing my "Grand Sound" stream. Now it it only blips for a second and then keeps playing. Thanks.

- (2019-04-21, v:0.5.1) Sid Sheldon: In Chrome it seems to have stopped working?
This is recent so I'm not sure how to troubleshoot further.
- (2019-04-12, v:0.5.1) Dark Madder: stopped working
This extension has been working perfectly for some time, but the last couple of days has been failing; despite that it says it is "on". I updated the extension and then it worked for about a day, but now stopped working again. I really value this extension, YouTube is broken for my purposes without it. Thanks.
- (2019-02-12, v:0.5.1) Asaf Ben-Yehuda: streamkeys not compatible?
Hi Thanks for the great extension!, I have been using streamkeys to control youtube music in chrome, and the problem was that youtube music stopped every once in a while and I needed to go to the tab and confirm the notification, your extensions resolves this issue but seem to break the possibility of streamkeys to recognize youtube music Hopefully you could create a workaround fix for this Thank you!

- (2019-01-11, v:0.4.2) Nicky Torstensson: Quick Pause During "Continue Watching" Alert
Hi First of all: Great extension. Secondly: I have an issue which reoccurs. I have the extension installed along with Grammarly, AdBlock and Hoverzoom (and others which are likely not relevant). I experience, when the alert on YouTube pops up, that the video is briefly paused (0.5 seconds), then the video continues. I hope it is clear, how this is annoying when watching music videos :-). The brief stop is typically in the beginning of the video, but some seconds in the video (the stop is not at 0:00). I run Chrome version 71.0.3578.98 with 64 Bit if it is any help. BR, Nicky
- (2019-01-09, v:0.4.2) Stopped working as of 1/9/2019
I have been using this to listen to nature sounds or lofi synthwave recently and everything was great until this morning when I woke up and the video was paused. Main site. Google and Microsoft both rolled out an update overnight that killed the hard work done by you and others who want to stop YouTube's unethical practices.
- (2019-01-09, v:0.4.2) Jon: Only available on Chrome?
I use Firefox and would love to use this. Will it work on Firefox or do I have to use Chrome to save my sanity?
- (2019-01-02, v:0.4.2) Adrien Robert: Add the functionnality to music.youtube.com
Hello, Can you add the automatic accept of the popup in music.youtube.com aswell? Thank you.
