Hide YouTube™ Fullscreen Controls - Chrome Web Store
Item media 1 screenshot


Hide the YouTube™ fullscreen controls with the press of a hotkey or when you move the cursor to the display border.

Does YouTube™ leave the video controls visible for longer than you like? Do you want to have a hotkey that toggles the controls? This add-on let's you: - Hide the video controls when you move the cursor to any border - Hide the video controls and only show them when you want. - Toggle the controls when you press a hotkey - Hide some video overlays - Hide the play/pause animation In the add-on settings you can configure the individual sides as well as the hotkey. If you experience any issues, please let me know at https://github.com/nralbrecht/youtube-hide-controls/issues Note: The add-on currently does not work with embedded YouTube™ players.

Amazing extension, youtube should implement or embed this feature in the website itself.

very nice actually even better than Hyde but turned out this is much more better cause it will show controls again after you moved cursor while in hype you'd have to press hot keys again
