Overview

Choose what video and audio codecs YouTube should play for you

enhanced-h264ify is a fork of well-known h264ify extension for Firefox/Chrome which blocks VP8/VP9 codecs on YouTube, so that you can use H264 only. This may be useful because there are lots of devices on the market which support H264 hardware decoding and do not support VP8/VP9. This extension has new features such as manual blocking of H264, VP8, VP9, AV1, Opus, AAC codecs and 60fps video. By default it blocks everything but H264 and 60fps video. It works only on YouTube.

As an old intel Macbook user. I like it very much!! Playing YouTube video VP9 is accelerated by hardware.

This is a versatile tool which gives control over what codecs will not be sent by YouTube. I use it to block sending AV1 codec. My graphics card is capable of decoding VP9 so that's the codec I get. But the icing of the cake for a person who cares about audio quality is the option to block YT from sending normalized audio streams. The sound of the not normalized streams is better; it has more details and sounds more open. I am so happy with this option.

On Orange Pi 5 using Ubuntu 22.04 for Rockchip RK3588 devices by Joshua Riek, some video resolution / aspect ratio aren't supported by AV1 hardware, so video turn green. This help fix that for the time being. I don't know if that will ever be fixed.
