Overview

Seek, control volume, speed, and more with mouse and keyboard. Adjust player controls, progress bar, UI elements, process audio...

Browser extension for YouTube (including embedded videos), YouTube Music, and Google Drive videos. 100+ features available! Features are turned off by default - explore the extension's Popup and Options page and enable the ones you need. After installation, reload all YouTube pages! Fast forward, rewind, navigate chapters, control volume, speed, and more (50+ actions) with an unlimited number of custom mouse controls (hover over different areas of the video and use mouse wheels or buttons) and keyboard shortcuts. Use global keyboard shortcuts to control active video from any app. Turn on the "Auto Gain" feature to balance sound levels across different videos by making quieter videos louder. One of the audio channels is quieter or missing? Just turn on the "Mono Mix". Use the "High Pass Filter" to make muddy audio with too much bass clearer. If the volume is still too low, there is a "Boost Volume" feature. Make player controls always visible, hidden, visible only on mouse hover, or show only a minimalist progress bar. Auto-hide them in less than the default 3 seconds. Customize volume and time display and base time on the current playback rate.

Hi! To hide yoodles, enable the "Clean Page" feature and check the "Header - Logo Yoodle" option in Popup > Appearance & Other Features > Clean Page. "Home - Header chips" hides the section below the Search box with various chips/buttons to filter videos by some attributes (Live, Gaming, Music...) on the Home page. It's possible that you don't have this section.

Hi! This is not due to the extension (it doesn't influence YouTube's algorithm in any way). I never use the home page, but I've checked it now, and most videos are the same after refreshing, just in a slightly different order (I'm also using Brave, with watch history and all YouTube analytics disabled). Maybe this is due to your Brave filter settings, ad blocker, or just YouTube behaving weirdly in this particular account.

Was working great for a few months and now I get the pop up from YouTube "ad blocker violate youtube terms of service" AFTER every ad.

The issue is probably the "Auto-Skip Ads" feature. Try disabling all ad-related features (the last section in Popup > Appearance & Other Features): "Auto-Skip Ads", "Mute Ads", and "Blackout Ads".
