  • (2023-03-02) FUKU: not working
  • (2022-08-03) Reddue: Can you get this extension to work for every streaming website?
  • (2021-01-03) Tracker569: Love the extension except that it doesn't save if you're trying to edit while in a playlist. Just figured that out now lol. Other than that, great!
  • (2020-10-07) yu chi tan: totally cannot work for me. cannot save the setting, cannot skip the video. i already disable all other add ons for youtube it still doesnt work at all.....
  • (2019-11-09) Eiko: Could you add this feature?: if the title of the video starts with x then start from y:z
  • (2019-09-20) n ascentt: Sorry doesn't do anything for me. Tried with only this extension enabled. Videos just play from 0:00 every time. If this extension didn't have such a high average rating I'd say it's a scam. No idea why it doesn't work for me.
  • (2019-09-15) --: It's working again. Thank you!! :)
  • (2019-06-11) P West: 1. Seems to stop working when another YouTube extension, Invideo : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/invideo-for-youtube/iacbjlffnpbhgkgknabhkfmlcpdcigab, is enabled. The extension launches the change skip start & end timings but can't identify the name of the video playing. 3. NOW ADDED FEATURE :D 'These 2 youtube links both play the same video. Skipper doesn't seem to work with the second link yet. It would be awesome if it could! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckM97kSinLw https://www.youtube.com/tv#/watch/video/control?v=ckM97kSinLw' 4. FIXED "Recently the graphical view of where is being skipped in the video time/status bar is not being reset when another video is loaded from a playlist. [I don't believe this used to happen]" 5. Is there any way to add this to YouTube Music? It looks like it might be a slightly different setting for playlist links than the main version of YouTube. Thank you very much!

    I just tested your addon and its not skipping anything ...
  • (2018-11-22, v:0.7.89) Alice Nguyen: Skipper isn't working anymore
    Hi there, Skipper recently just stopped working for me completely even though I tried turning it on and off, as well as removing it from Chrome and re-downloading it too. The green skipping bar does show up on the youtube videos but it doesn't skip, it just plays normally from the start.
  • (2018-07-13, v:0.7.27) Laurence Whiteley: Instructions
    Can you make a little video showing how to actually use it or something, I can't get it to work at all, it just resets after I try and save it every time.
  • (2018-05-12, v:0.7.27) Adam Ibrahim: Good extension
    This Extension is very good but the only thing i would like if it worked for all songs in youtube.
  • (2018-05-01, v:0.7.25) Tracker569: Doesn't skip for me
    It used to work in a video I wanted to skip through a few months ago... But right now it's not skipping though any timestamp I try to set it to. It's not just one specific video but any I try to skip through.
  • (2018-02-14, v:0.7.15) Tibo Lebegge: Skip per channel
    I tend to listen to a lot of songs by a couple uploaders, I wonder if there can be an option to skip X seconds at start and Y at end on a channel basis instead of per video basis? I would gladly appreciate it!
  • (2017-12-03, v:0.7.10) some songs
    why do a lot of songs not skip? are they not in the database? how is the database updated?
