This version, 9.0, works with the new YouTube layout, except that there is no visible switch and when adding videos to any of your lists, the list names are invisible. Actually, they are whited out and if you hover your mouse over the list, you can see the names. So the only way to turn it off is to go into Addons and disable it.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
This has been a great addon. We all know that Youtube has its annoying quirks, one of them being autoplay. If you are like me and like to open several tabs with different YT videos, this addon has been a great thing to have as it prevents YT from autoplay. Unfortunately, YT is at it again, changing its site. The developer says that he is aware of the problem and is working on an update to address this change. Be patient and wait for it. There is nothing else out there that does what this does. For me, it is indispensable.This user has a previous review of this add-on.
This addin has so many limitations. I tried downloading a variety of videos. Some returned the error that YT Enhancer doesn't convert too short videos or too long videos .Never had a problem with Easy YT Downloader. Also, small thing, but the dimmer only works in the current session. I like YT Light Switch better in that it dims the lights for all sessions unless you flick the switch off. This is just overly rated in my opinion.
**UPDATE** or rather a reply to the developer's reply below
Mr. Maxime RF: I'm at least having the courtesy replying to your response by editing my original review so that I do not skew either way your overall rating by submitting another review/rating as some people do.
As far as your accusations that I am the developer of YT Light Switch, I think that is pretty silly of you. I am just an end-user reviewing it the way I see it. If your logic in assuming that I am the developer of YT Light Switch, and therefore guilty of spamming, then how does that logic hold up to me mentioning Easy Downloader? Are the two by the same developer? I haven't checked.
I can accept your simple explanation that your add-on "does what it is supposed to do" with its accompanying explanation and re-evaluate your addon based on the new information. I do not understand you getting so bent out of shape by a critical review that you accuse me of being a developer spamming and out to sabotage your rating. You obviously have users who are quite pleased with your product.
As far as you saying that your addon's features are completely different that the ones I mentioned, that is totally incorrect. I was specifically comparing like features. I specifically tried your addon as a substitute for those two addons. I was hoping that your one addon could replace the function of having two addons. So again, your logic is questionable.
I just gave my honest assessment of your addon. That's all.
Perhaps you should not be so thin-skinned. Displaying such impatience and crass towards a review is unbecoming and will not earn you support or even more customers. At least politeness will not hurt your business.
As someone who puts products out to the public, you should know that not everyone will like your product, no matter how good it is. Different users are different users with their different likes/dislikes and MO.
Best wishes to you.
There is so much posted on YouTube that is immature, ignorant, and unintelligent. This weeds them out. It blocks comments and gives the reason why. You have the option of showing the individual comment if you like.
A previous reviewer, Firefox Foreva on March 11, said you can't turn off all comments with this addon, but that is not true as it is one of the options you can set.
I loved it when YouTube for what was it, Earth Day? had the light switch enabling you to watch the videos in cinema mode. It makes the video easier to see. This does the trick.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9).
Not quite sure what otherwise is an excellent review by Mozzyy about this loading the buffer. It has an option where you can turn that off.
But this is excellent. I know that many of us surfers open up several YouTube links in new tabs and do not want them to start playing. This does the trick.
