Description from store This extension does not add any UI element and uses no resource at all. Only on YouTube pages, a very tiny script is injected which controls the player's playing status based on document visibility. When a YouTube tab is bring to front, the player automatically resumes exactly like pressing the play button and when document is hidden, the player will automatically pauses exactly like when pause button is pressed.

This is useful for when you want to listen to YouTube videos in a background tab.

  • (2019-05-09) Stefane Guevremont: This Extension works like a charm. I especially love the fact that it pauses only when switching between tabs of the same Chrome window. I often type or work in a separate window and can still have a youtube video play in another. I would suggest an improvement. I personally like the auto-pause, I sometimes find the auto-resume to be bothersome. It would be useful to have an option to select which ones you choose to activate. That would make this Extension even better.

  • (2018-11-29) Chrom: C'est parfaitement ce que je recherchais ; je peux uniquement me focaliser sur un seul onglet YouTube et sans y être ! Il suffit d'épingler l'onglet qu'on veut garder actif et le tour est joué !
  • (2018-10-14) Rainbow Warrior Princess: Autopause does work when switching to another tab, but when switching back, the video is still paused instead of playing again / continuing with the video playback.
  • (2018-07-20) d0x360: finally a plugin that actually works on youtube again in regards to pausing and playing when switching tabs. The low number of downloads and reviews always make me wary but looking at the contents of the plugin itself I dont see anything malicious unlike some other similar youtube plugins that dont even work. So thank you dev, it is much appreciated.
