The extension will only activate the ambient light effect on YouTube's /watch page The only requests being sent are crash reports. (But crash reports can be turned off.) No other requests are sent to any webserver, website or api. But in case a crash occurs the report is sent to Sentry.io and will always be deleted after 30 days. Because the only goal of these crash reports is to fix the crash. While doing so we also take into account your Do Not Track preference.

Honestly transformed my YouTube watching experience. Coupled with a 32" 2k monitor, although not exactly like an ambilight TV, it does look nice in its own way. The "Remove black bars" doesn't work the best, as it can remove some subtitles that are actually within the video, like another user commented below. I just decided not to use it so it's not a huge deal. One problem I've been having recently though is: I exclusively use the theater mode with the setting "Hide everything in theater mo... Show more

I use this to remove the ambient light feature. It does work. It does work so well that it removes dark parts of the video as well which often removes built in subtitles in the video as well..

The extension messes up the colors of any video I'm watching. Are there any settings that can prevent this? Edit: Thanks for responding, Wessel! It was clashing with the BetterTwitchTV extension. Not sure how but I've disabled that one. Thanks for the help. I can't use YT without this extension on my OLED monitor. Edit: I spoke too soon. The issues have continued. I've disabled all my other extensions yet the issues persist.

It sounds like the ambient light is overlayed on top of the video instead of behind. This could be caused by other extensions you have installed or a hardware bug. Try to find out which other extension causes this behaviour. Edit: Glad to hear that you found the conflicting extension. I'll investigate if I can do something to make this extension compatible with the BetterTwitchTV extension. Edit: I did receive a similar report of someone else with more details. You might be having the same issue? "Blurs out certain videos when an image is shown with a black background". It sounds like this happens when a image, like an ad, was displayed before the video?
