  • (2023-01-15) Novalinnhe Rowe: Really useful and works perfectly. I stumbled across this after seeing a comment about it on a YT video, and am so happy I decided to go ahead and install it. It helps me avoid clicking on low-quality and/or harmful content, as well as spot where a creator should be avoided (i.e. if lots of their videos have a noticeably higher dislike count than others in their category). I don't 100% understand why YouTube chose to remove this feature, but am so grateful someone created this add-on and would love to donate to say thank you, if that option is available anywhere.
  • (2023-01-09) SOMRIK SADHUKHAN: it works really well.........I love it
  • (2022-12-18) Julian Cisneros: It's okay. It does what it says, but only about half the thumbnails show the bar immediately. The other half of the thumbnails range from 2-15 seconds to load the bar.
  • (2022-11-12) houkoku bug: 評価させない自己中ゴミを排除するのをメインで使っていて 低評価表示拡張機能と組み合わせてますが 動画やライブのサムネイルの評価の色が色で比率が緑や赤や評価なし状態のグレーで表示されていても 開いてみると結局評価をさせてくしている表示が出てる他 高評価低評価だけ表示されていて評価できないケースもあり そのような事が多々あります 改善をお願いします
  • (2022-11-09) Rainbow Warrior Princess: The feature 'color-coded text rating percentage to each video listing' doesn't work anymore. Suggestion: Please also show the 'color-coded text rating percentage to each video listing' also on the video page under the video, placed before the 'thumbs up' icon.
  • (2022-11-09) ae.knorthc: Genius!
  • (2022-11-01) Conrad Hays: the extension is fine, but now youtube has a new UI, with those stupid rounded corners.
  • (2022-10-18) Pongsatond Trechinapong: This is the best way to know about the video rating before even watch it
  • (2022-10-04) JC Denton: This extension has only gotten better over time. I remember back when I had to set up an API key and everything before the Return Youtube Dislike integration and now it's just an easy one-click install. Great job as always, you make the world a better place!!!
  • (2022-09-23) Lady Death: OK
  • (2022-09-16) Francesco Barboza: Truly an underrated extension!
  • (2022-08-04) Liz: Works great, but when you use it with "Return Dislikes" extension and have exponential scaling on, it messes up the display on the video player dislike bar and shows it incorrectly compared to the normal display for exponential scaling. The colors also get inverted for me sometimes, seems to break and fix itself regarding the colors randomly. Otherwise a solid extension!
  • (2022-08-02) Mason Hallett (DeathDiamond720): I absolutely love this extension, though when paired with the 'Return Youtube Dislikes' extension, it can sometimes remove the dislike counter and replace it with "UNAVAILABLE". If an update can fix this, this review will be an instant five stars!
  • (2022-07-20) Brian Lord: This is a great extension but can you give us the option to change it back to the classic Green & Red instead of the Blue & White?
  • (2022-06-20) Eiji “Sean” Kunisawa: Works great. Currently the extension shows good vs bad ratio. I would be nice if this extention can also show percentage (or number) of likes per 1000 views, etc. A. 10k views: 100 likes 20 dislikes B. 10k views: 1000 likes 200 dislikes Currently we cannot distiguish the diff b/t A and B. I would rather watch B than A.
  • (2022-05-31) んう: Verrrrry nice
  • (2022-05-30) Rodvic Diaz: Simple, but incredible. Customizable as well. I feel like this extension should have a collaboration with the Return YouTube Dislike extension altogether because it has such a huge merit. It doesn't work in shorts videos without a custom thumbnail and hopefully will be fixed soon, but it's not a huge inconvenience.
  • (2022-04-23) Per Sona: The rating bar works one hundred percent I recommend this extension.
  • (2022-04-21) Oliver Jensen: Virker åbenbart ikke med EdgeChromium?
  • (2022-04-14) Vicente Miranda: EXACTLY what I was looking for! And it has some nice add-on features! Thank you sincerely, from a Georgia Tech undergrad
  • (2022-04-13) Armin “Zuloh666” Stein: Works with the "Return Youtube dislike" Addon! Perfect!
  • (2022-04-09) n ascentt: RIP - This worked incredibly! Sadly no longer works now that youtube changed their api
  • (2022-04-05) Victor Noel: Una herramienta excelente, pero necesita una actualización urgente. Hasta hace poco funcionaba sin problemas, pero al parecer YouTube se dio cuenta de la existencia de esta extensión. Ojalá la arreglen, porque si lo hacen esta vuelve a ser una 5/5
  • (2022-04-04) BboyPaul 180: I hope the developer sees this review. I think Youtube has just disabled this feature. This extension used to be AMAZING. Now most videos are standard 50/50 rated or 100/0 rated because Youtube catched up on it. I thought the developer should know to see if there's any way to update or fix this. Extension itself (when working) deserves a 5 star rating though! I hope the developer can solve it!
  • (2022-03-27) broskie gang: its sooo useful when you're trying to find a video to help you do something like for example a video to help to change a car tire. it lets you see the ratings so that you will know if the video is worth going through
  • (2022-03-15) blue: Works again!! Great! Some minor suggestions below. 1. I think you should add the capture image of this extension. The color-coded like percentage next to the title is a great feature, but people are unable to know about it in the explanation page. 2. Also, more people will use this extension if you mention people can customize the color of the bar. (capture image would be easier to recognize, too.) 3. If you click default Green/Red color, there is a white line separating the colors, but I think white line should not be in the default color. It should be in right side option below "Add a separation line above the rating bar", named "Add a separation line BETWEEN the rating bar".
  • (2022-03-14) FamKis: Totally awesome. Even works with the returnyoutubedislike extension after YouTube removed the Dislike counter.
  • (2022-02-21) Alukard: Приложение не работает! Совершенно рандомно рисует примерно 90% лайков и создаёт только видимость работы!
  • (2022-02-06) Jan Zaharov: Работает, как анонсировано. Спасибо!
  • (2022-01-23) Paseos con Tim: I hope this extension has already been included in a MUST-HAVE list, because it's soooo useful! Thanks a toooon!
  • (2021-12-31) Shivam Kumar Choudhary: Creator of this extension is very very very much kind hearted i told them a bug in extension that number of likes and dislikes is not separated by comma believe me they fixed it within hours and also mailed me they`ve fixed this issue,thank thank you so much for this extension,my simple funda for watching the youtube video is to see if more number of likes on the video or not so this extension simply tells me how much like on the video without opening the video and decide if to watch or not
  • (2021-12-29) Gregory Dibb: This is so great to have. Anyone that doesn't have this extension is wasting too much time on Youtube watching bad videos. Hoping it can be modified now that google is removing dislike counts, I'd like to see % likes / views ratio, which infers the same thing. I'll pay for that, let's make that happen.
  • (2021-12-28) P Engelen: This is the ANSWER for youtube removing the dislike button. AWESOME! You should develop a return YT dislike button extension, because this is great. I love it!
  • (2021-12-27) Binky Stalls: I have this extension and Return YT Dislikes but the red line status bar is gone from the thumbnails while watching a video.
  • (2021-12-20) Tofu Connected: Stopped working today. Thumbnail rating replaced by grey line. edit: installed Return YouTube Dislike and it works again
  • (2021-12-18) Arpad Orfi: Works perfectly. Thank you for this gem! Love. :-)
  • (2021-12-18) Viewtiful Design: A ray of blue light in dark times.
  • (2021-12-18) Rohin Koshi: works great with the return youtube dislikes extension to get accurate counts. thanks so much for integrating those together!
  • (2021-12-17) Rainbow Warrior Princess: Bug: Rating bar on video page states always 100% positive/green, also when there are negative ratings. Suggestion: Please also show the dislike-like ratio score in % on the video page, placed before the 'thumbs up' icon.
  • (2021-12-16) Alexander Patino: I thought the extension was broken because of the removal of the YouTube API key. Turns out you can just remove the extension, and reinstall it and it should be good. You NEED to have the return youtube dislikes extension for this one to work. Thank you Elliot for making YouTube more convenient for everyone.
  • (2021-12-16) Alessh 77: Works again, thanks! (needs users permission to access *://*.returnyoutubedislikeapi.com/* site.)
  • (2021-12-16) Lubomír Dohnal: Works like a charm!
  • (2021-12-15) Harry TM: Edit: Sadly, it won't work anymore. The best of all.
  • (2021-12-15) nikola parushev: It has been useful so far, but i noticed today that it stopped showing accurate like percentage and the bar - it stays at 100%, though the video may be at 1:10 or 1:1 ratio likes to dislikes. I heard that YouTube is doing something more in addition to removing the dislike button, but im not sure
  • (2021-12-15) Jung Lee: It was great while it lasted. Let's downvote ALL videos until Youtube restores the counter.
  • (2021-12-15) Rainbow Warrior Princess: *** Since a few days always shows 100% positive green ratings, despite API key, please fix it! *** Please make it work also on the video page !
  • (2021-12-14) Andre Kame: All videos showed with 100% rating
  • (2021-12-14) nanoblit: I have a suggestion. Since YouTube removed dislikes from the API, could you maybe collaborate with the creator of the "Return YouTube Dislike" extension and get the data from them?
  • (2021-12-14) Frankie Nordeman: Even though it doesn't work anymore, I'm still giving it 5 stars because it was such a helpful extension. It's a shame Youtube is being the way they are nowadays.
  • (2021-12-14) FARES505 AASSDD: welp, google killed it from YouTube API, but there is hope which is those guys, if you add their API then your extension will work again. https://github.com/Anarios/return-youtube-dislike or their own website https://www.returnyoutubedislike.com/
