Restyle the YouTube popout chat so you can overlay it for livestreams

Restyle the YouTube popout chat so you can overlay it for livestreams. Install this extension, then use the "pop out chat" feature on a YouTube live video. You can either full-screen the window and bring it into video streaming systems like the ATEM Mini to overlay the chat using a Luma or Chroma key, or you can get a remote URL to bring your chat into OBS, a YoloBox, or Lightstream Studio as a browser source!

Honestly, haven't used it live yet, looks nice and it's pretty simple to learn But I can seem to find a feature to auto feature comments, I moslty want to stream games and having to go to the pop-up to highlight comments would break the flow, maybe use the keywords or just for donations?
