Overview

Chrome Extension that allows you to focus by blocking YouTube videos from 'distractive' categories.

This chrome extension allows you to select the type of videos that you want to see in your YouTube feed and blocks/hides all other videos that do not belong to the selected categories. Most of the extensions block the entire feed and hide all recommendations which might not be what you want while studying or focusing on learning a topic. By selectively blocking the distracting videos only, this extension allows you to focus on what's important and prevents you from getting distracted into the YouTube rabbithole. The extension currently works in 3 scenarios within YouTube: - Home Feed - Search Results - Video player and its accompanying recommendation column

Great extension, but needs password protection real bad. Or rather I need this add-on to be password protected, I can't trust myself that I won't simply turn it off.

Apparently it removes the recommendations from the sidebar & search but not from the home feed. Probably this one is related to certain bug for either new Chrome or Manifest V3. A bug fix for the app would be nice. Thanks.

It works perfectly (as of dec 11th)! This really stops me from mindlessly consuming videos. The only reason why it's not 5 stars: It would be really helpful if there was a separate category just for podcasts. The ‘People and Blogs’ category tends to include videos that aren’t exactly podcasts. Having a dedicated podcast category would make things a lot easier. Thanks so much for this extension!
