Overview

YouTube Anywhere Remote allows you to control videos on YouTube, Udemy, and AmigosCode even while you're using other programs!

Features controls like: Pause, Rewind, Next/Previous Video, and more. This allows you to control videos on YouTube, Udemy, and AmigosCode even while using other programs or while your browser is minimized. The goal was to not have to switch back and forth between your video and your other content while studying, working, or gaming! The extension also lets you choose all of your own shortcuts for ease-of-use. ----------------------------- How to Use YouTube Anywhere Remote: Watch the YouTube video above for a visual guide! 1. After installing, click on the dotted menu icon at the top right of your browser and under "More tools" click on "Extensions" to open the Extensions page. 2. On the extensions page, click on the menu at the top left of the page and click on "Keyboard shortcuts". Here you can easily choose whatever shortcuts are most comfortable for you for each feature. YouTube Anywhere Remote will now let you control the YouTube or Udemy video tab furthest to the left in your browser window! IMPORTANT: Make sure to switch "In Chrome" to "Global" if you want to use features while you're using other programs or have your browser minimized. ----------------------------- --- Version 1.4.1 Released --- Udemy Text Lessons Now Supported - Next and previous buttons will now also work on lessons with text content. - Includes a fix where script was injected multiple times and caused performance problems in some cases. --- Version 1.4.0 Released --- Skip Ad shortcut added! - The skip ad shortcut will only work once the actual "Skip Ad" button is made visible by YouTube on the screen. - This works more in accordance with YouTube's terms of service and shouldn't jeopardize your account standing when compared to how YouTube Ad-blocker extensions potentially can. --- Version 1.3.0 Released --- AmigosCode.com support has been added! - Controls for YouTube, Udemy, and AmigosCode are nearly identical - AmigosCode tabs should be fully compatible with existing features --- Version 1.2.1 Released --- Better Udemy Support! - Video overlays are no longer clickable and will not get in the way of original player functionality. - Playback speed no longer reverts to default speed after pausing and resuming video. --- Version 1.2.0 Released --- Video overlays have been added! - Video overlays now show current volume of video, playback speed, and loop status when changed --- Version 1.1.0 Released --- Udemy.com support has been added! - Controls for both YouTube and Udemy videos are nearly identical - Udemy tabs should be fully compatible with existing features --- Version 1.0.0 Released --- Features Added: - Volume Up - Volume Down - Next Video (Works even when not in a playlist) - Previous Video (Works even when not in a playlist) - Loop Current Video - User can now easily select which video to control by simply clicking on it (must be the YouTube video furthest to the left) Functionality Improvements: - Improved usability when multiple windows are open - Second opened YouTube video in separate window no longer steals focus from first YouTube video opened if first video is still playing - Reduced redundant script executions to increase overall speed - Minimized amount of uncaught errors - Increased communication between the extension and the loaded YouTube page

This is really awesome when it works. But I've noticed if you click onto any other pages it will not work. I always have to refresh my video page to get it to work again. Happy to screen share to replicate/debug.

Sorry, for such a late response! I have a bit more free time to make updates to this again now. If you're still free, can you confirm a couple things to help me replicate it if it's still occurring? 1. You've probably already done this, but is the "In Chrome" dropdown in your extension keyboard shortcuts set to "Global"? 2. Do any of the shortcut key combos you set ever work when you don't have the Youtube page's tab selected? 3. If at some point the shortcut keys ever do work while the tab isn't selected, when exactly do they stop working when you click on another page?

I might try disabling the extension and re-enabling it again. If that doesn't work, I might try restarting my computer and re-enabling the extension once more. But if you're still having issues after that, let me know and I'll try my best to help!

Please add numpad key support. And add support for right alt and right ctrl for shortcut key combinations, please.

Chrome (and any browsers based on Chromium e.g. Edge) only allow browser extensions to set shortcuts for a few keys. They've listed those in the link I'm posting below, but here are a few: A-Z keys, 0-9 keys, arrow keys, & a few others. Right Ctrl/Alt/Shift keys work, but can't be distinguished from the left Ctrl/Alt/Shift keys. Bummer, but this is something Google itself would have to change and I don't have control over. https://developer.chrome.com/docs/extensions/reference/api/commands#supported_keys
