Replace background YouTube™ videos with more efficient audio, for less distractions.

Radio Mode for YouTube™ removes the video from the page, leaving just the audio, for less distractions. Ever listen to music on YouTube in the background? Ever see your computer slow down or hear the fans start spinning? Simply click the Radio icon in the YouTube player to remove the video. If you are playing a playlist, every video will be blanked out automatically. * This only works with the HTML5 YouTube player. Videos that are forced to play in Flash, such as VEVO, will not work with the plugin. * This does not save on bandwidth, just CPU usage and potential distractions. Usage based on a single video playing. CPU usage reduced by ~50%. YouTube is a trademark of Google Inc. Use of this trademark is subject to Google Permissions.

Do not install this extension, it runs random YT videos in the background, it took me two weeks and a bunch of anti-virus scans to find the culprit. It watches random YT videos from your account in the background making it impossible to identify where the account jeoprdacy is coming from.

Still loaded in the video in the background, doesnt save any bandwidth, totally defeats the purpose.
