Image from store Don’t Watch Later
Description from store A simple Google Chrome extension to disable autoplay for videos from your YouTube Watch Later playlist. I usually open videos in a new tab from my Watch Later playlist, which automatically has the `list=WL` querystring parameter. I also don’t usually watch videos in the order I added them to my Watch Later playlist. Instead of trying to hack YouTube’s massive amounts of JavaScript, this plugin does exactly what I need. This extension doesn't track any of your data usage, and is open sourced at https://github.com/shakeelmohamed/dont-watch-later

  • (2022-06-21) Angel FuVA: Funciona muy bien, solo que tienes que abrirlo como pestaña nueva. Eso es bueno, ya que de alguna manera te deja usarlo de la manera normal también si solo das click en el video.
  • (2022-02-12) Гриша Факторович: Must have! You need to open the video in a new tab.
  • (2020-09-07) Lisa Lavandula: Does exactly what I wanted it to, which is playing a video from my Watch Later, instead of loading the whole list, enabling YouTube to run a lot faster for me.
  • (2019-01-27) James Braden: Not quite what I was looking for. I use playlist to group videos, but don't want it to go to the next one once I finish a video. I was hoping this extension would simply prevent from loading the next video in the playlist, but sadly it just takes redirects you to the basic non-playlist URL.
  • (2016-02-19) Bill Price: When you click on a video in your Watch Later playlist, this extension makes the video load as a single independent video, not as a "playlist" video, and thus prevents the next video in your Watch Later list from autoplaying. Perfect!

    I really liked it but it stopped working after youtube update Thank you!
  • (2017-08-23, v:0.1.1) Could be more convenient
    Very useful, but it'd be nice if there was a faster way to switch it off. Sometimes you actually do want to watch a playlist.
