Overview

Adds a stop button to the player interface to unload the player and stop the video from buffering any time.

This extension unloads the YouTube player without affecting the actual page. Removing the player eliminates any network requests to fetch or buffer the video. This is especially useful when you wish to watch the video later without YouTube preloading it and consuming your bandwidth. Key Features: 1. Disables automatic buffering 2. Halts player-related network activities 3. Unloads the player while keeping the page intact The extension introduces a new "Stop" button located next to the "Play" button. Click the "Stop" button whenever you want to unload the player. Additional Notes: 1. This extension exclusively supports the HTML5 player, offering no compatibility with Youtube's old Flash player. 2. Built on manifest v3, this extension adheres to the specified guidelines. 3. It only operates when the "Stop" button is triggered and remains in an idle state at all other times, ensuring no background activities are running.

Works well ! (Adds 'stop' button to youtube player and when clicked, stops the player from buffering) Though, I liked how it used to show the thumbnail behind the player when stopped, that feature seems to no longer be working.
