  • (2018-06-03) Used this extension on both Chrome & Firefox. I like seeing a preview of the video, and the simple rating bar. The only small problem, is that if you go through a lot of channels, the bar does not show up for a minute or so.

  • (2017-12-15) Gersivan Oliveira: Versão: 2.2.9 Se tornou Útil após a atualização.
  • (2017-10-15) john gerity: WRONG THUMBNAIL! Often changes the thumbnails in the Recomended/Up Next column. Similar to the Netflix bug where the wrong description shows up on a show or movie. VERY frustrating when you want to see what video the thumbnail is from but can't find it.
  • (2017-07-19) Marcos Freitas: Otimo
  • (2017-07-15) Mister Yosef: The App keeps getting better! Before, the extension would show three preview images from the video, Now it actaully shows a small segment of the video! played in the thumbnail. 10/10 A+++
  • (2017-07-11) Rabbitos: Worked perfectly. Now Youtube does this on its own! So no need to get this anymore. :)
  • (2017-06-27) Sam Friedman: Shows very few image previews (looks like a slideshow of 4 images) and often shows the wrong video. Also, it seems to be breaking YouTube sometimes for me, however I can't be certain if it's this extension in particular.
  • (2017-06-19) Atrium Domy: It used to work perfectly, but some time ago it gone wrong or crash. Now it seems to show frames from diferent videos, no match. Preview shows lion figting, but when u click on it it shows cooking tips, have no idea whats going on
  • (2017-06-01) danusty i: The best! let's you verify if the video is what you were actually looking for; also includes ratings preview. I will never fall for fake videos again!
  • (2017-05-15) Paul Comanici: Last update: May 16, 2017 Version 2.2.8 - as of May 16 (2017) it supports old & new YouTube UI General: - 3 thumbnails on mouse hover for any video; - rating bar on the top of every thumbnail; - Wiki page: https://github.com/darkyndy/YoutubeVideoPreview/wiki. - sync settings across different computers;
  • (2017-05-15) Cube Tesseract: It was okay but it stoped working now. Why?...

  • (2017-07-14, v:2.2.8) Please help
    I've been trying to delete this extension, I have tried deleting it, it keeps coming back, it doesn't show that I have it, but when I hover over the videos, it still shows the preview. I have went into the chrome files and deleted the file, I have went into the registry and deleted the appropriate file, I have completely uninstalled chrome and its still there, I turned sync off for addons, so i shouldn't have it. Please help.
  • (2017-07-08, v:2.2.8) Abraham Menéndez: Wrong thumbnails
    As Isaiah says, I'm getting mix-matched thumbnails. I'm not doing anything weird, just watching videos. I have the uBlock and Stylish extensions.
  • (2017-05-30, v:2.2.8) Isaiah: Wrong thumbnails
    Starting a while ago the previews for each video have become the mix-matched. A video about gardening will have a thumbnail preview of some gaming video and etc.
  • (2017-05-16, v:2.2.8) Option to change bar position
    I prefer the rating bar to be on the bottom of thumbnails I don't have a problem with it being with the progress bar So I hope you add an option to change the position of the bar
