A simple extension to disable autoplay for videos from your YouTube watch later playlist.

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

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.

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.

Must have! You need to open the video in a new tab.
