Description from store Get Instant Search with Video Preview on YouTube™! How does it work? ------------------ 1. Install 2. Go to YouTube.com ™ 3. Start typing in the YouTube™ search box - magic will happen :) Search for videos in the YouTube™ website without having to stop the video you are watching. The extension will turn the search bar on the YouTube™ website into a smart search bar that displays search results elegantly within the same YouTube™™ page you're currently on and allows you to watch them, preview them instantly or queue them for watching later with a click of a mouse. Best of all, Smart Search for YouTube™ is intuitive to use and fits right into the YouTube™ look and feel. Great extension for YouTube™ DJs (you know who you are!) and saves you from watching fake videos by "peeking" before you watch the full video. Features -------------------- Instant Search – You will see results as you type. Instant Preview – Hover over any video image for an instant video preview (BETA). Full control – Control the different aspects of searching and result display. Settings page will appear when the extension icon is clicked. High performance – Results appear lightning fast. Using it is easy! -------------------- After a quick installation, just surf to YouTube™ (http://www.youtube.com) and start typing in the search bar on the top part of the page. You will start seeing results instantly. Additionally, you may choose from the search term suggestions to show more accurate results. Once results appear you can hover over each result for a quick preview before you watch it or add it to your "Watch Later" queue. You can do all this, without ever stopping the video (or music clip) you are currently watching. Privacy: -------------------- The extension uses only the YouTube™ API and does not collect or save any personally identifiable information. Change log: -------------------- Version 2.2 *Fixed show/hide search results *Fixed results overlay in YouTube's new always-on-top bar. *Added feedback form at the bottom of the options page *Various bug fixes

  • (2014-04-03) Ian Pierce: Simply doesn't work. I type into the search bar and no search results come up. Really was looking forward to using the extension :( Someone please tell me I'm crazy.
  • (2013-09-02) This is the most practical app for youtube, and I am really grateful for it!!!
  • (2013-06-12) Nick Pappas: It is really cool. A potentially 5 star extension if it were to provide some additional customization. For example: - The ability to pause the main video upon instant preview of search results but not on the suggestions next to the main video(it gets tiresome to always have to avoid the suggestions if you have the pause main video option on). -Perhaps work with the with the YouTube Ratings preview extension as well. -It would be nice if the author were to provide a way to contact for suggestions/bugs.
  • (2013-01-17) Please add an option to remove the auto-preview if the search term is null.
  • (2013-01-05) Ofir Bloch: Works great! Just what I was looking for. Thanks!
