YouTube™ Stop Button

Description from extension meta

Adds an stop button to HTML5 player to prevent YouTube from buffering video

Image from store YouTube™ Stop Button
Description from store Have you ever wished your YouTube player had an stop button which prevents youTube from buffering (loading) video files when you are not going to watch that particular video? If so you can have it now! By installing this extension you will get an stop button on the right side of the play button. Pressing this button unloads the YouTube player and hence it will stop buffering videos. Note: This extension only works with HTML5 players. No button will be appended to the Flash version of the YouTube player. For other YouTube related tools please check my homepage at http://add0n.com/youtube-tools.html?from=stop-button

  • (2018-10-21) Phuong Tran: It should be perfect if have an option to stop video at the end
  • (2018-10-08) jose sojo: gracias
  • (2018-09-06) Mike: The button works fine, my issue is that your extension has permission to "Read your browsing history." There is no reason for you to include that if not for selfish reasons. No Thanks!

  • (2017-03-01) Ted: Works very well, but when there is a youtube video on another site that is not youtube, it doesn't work. When the video is in the channel results, i.e.those showing what the channel is about are not stopped.

    Youtube may upgrade its system again that causes your button to be obsolete and gone from its usual place. Need you to follow suit please.
