Optional features (disabled by default): - auto-pause a video in Youtube player; - pause Youtube player when Potplayer starts; - play video using middle mouse click on youtube.com/watch* page; - sync current video position (time) with PotPlayer; - open a Youtube link in the player using middle mouse click on a link; - «Open/Add link to player» in the context menu for any link, html5 video player If it doesn't work for you or you have portable version of player then try to open the player's settings (key "F5"), then go to "Association" tab and check any association (e.g. ".mp4") and finally press Apply or OK button (after applying the settings you can uncheck previously checked association).

Behaves weirdly in Vivaldi. Out of random menu items from the popup on youtube can simple disappear and to fix it you have to reload the page OR open the extension menu and unclick-click "Add link to a player" option. Can this be fixed? Is it this extension bug or chrome is messing with it? Really annoying.

Can't reproduce the issue. The context menu is still there when clicking on a youtube link, by default it's only "Open link in PotPlayer" and you can additionally add "Add link to PotPlayer" in the settings. Tested on youtube.com
