Overview

Customize, shuffle and play random videos from any YouTube channel.

Do you have a favourite YouTube channel, but don't know what to watch? This extension is for you! The "Random YouTube Video" extension adds a "Shuffle" button to YouTube channel, video and shorts pages, which will play a truly random video from the current channel. Use the extension's popup to customize your experience even further! Level up your YouTube experience with these features: ✔ A new shuffle button that uses the native look and feel of YouTube - including dark mode - so it fits right in with the YouTube interface you're used to! ✔ Utilize a wide range of options to individualize your experience, such as ignoring shorts, only shuffling from the most recent videos or shuffling multiple videos into a playlist! ✔ A smart, 100% anonymous backend technology ensures that popular channels shuffle as fast as possible, no matter how many video uploads they have! ✔ ...and much more! Do you want to support the extension's development or say thank you? Consider donating or sponsoring the project on GitHub: https://ko-fi.com/nikkelm https://github.com/sponsors/NikkelM Do you have questions or feedback? Feel free to open an issue on the project's GitHub page: https://github.com/NikkelM/Random-YouTube-Video Latest changes: v3.1.1 - Fixed a bug where the extension would rename all playlists, instead of just the ones created by the extension. - The collapsed playlist menu will now also have the correct playlist name. v3.1.0 - Firefox: The welcome page now prompts users to allow the extension to access the youtube.com domain, this is needed for the extension to function. - Fixed a bug where the shuffle button in the popup would only work on the second try. - Firefox: Fixed the options page not being accessible. - Firefox: Fixed a bug where the extension was unable to retrieve the amount of local storage used. v3.0.2 - Fixed the fetch percentage in the shuffling page being misaligned. v3.0.1 - Fixed the old "Ignore shorts" option not being updated to the new format correctly. v3.0.0 - Shorts pages are now supported! Shuffle buttons can now be found on all shorts pages. - Added a new option to shuffle only from shorts. - Added a 'welcome' page that will be shown when you first install the extension and guide you through the first steps. - The popup now also works as a standalone options page. - When watching shorts, the extension will now update the last visited channel in the popup. - Reduced the time it takes to shuffle, as the extension now uses a new way to decide whether or not to check if a video has been deleted or not. - The playlist that is opened when shuffling (if the option is enabled) now has a better title and tooltip. - The shuffle button now feels more responsive when clicked, and will give more information if it takes a bit longer to shuffle. - The popup now feels smoother in some places, and will make it clearer when some inputs are invalid. - If certain errors are encountered, the playlist will still be saved locally and in the database, to speed up the next shuffle. - Fixed bugs that would prevent some initialization logic to run after the extension is updated.

There are times that it is not working. How to fix this? It doesn't show up sometimes.

Update: Today I was able to reproduce the issue, and I've created a fix for it in version 3.1.2 which should become available shortly. Original: Hi, thanks for the review. I've gotten a number of reports saying the Shuffle button doesn't show at times lately. From what I've been able to gather, this is due to YouTube testing out a new UI with a small cohort of users, this may break the layout the extension is expecting. Until I get access to this new UI myself, I unfortunately cannot update the extension. For now, I am tracking this issue here: https://github.com/NikkelM/Random-YouTube-Video/issues/280 As a workaround, you can always use the shuffle button in the extension popup.
