- by Firefox user 15135002, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5Not sure if this is what's supposed to happen or if I'm doing anything wrong, but this extension does absolutely nothing for me. I just installed it yesterday and as soon as I enabled it, all I see on instagram is this box in the lower left-hand corner that says "Video Scrubber: Trial Expired", which is apparently a link. When I click it, it takes me to the support/license purchase page, itself clearly stating that the extension is free for the 1st month and that I have to purchase a license to continue after that, yadda yadda, just like it states here on AMO.
But that's not my issue with it. I already knew that going in, not a gacha or anything. The problem is that I have not been able to use it AT ALL, not even once, to test it or anything. Absolutely NONE of the features work, I can't pause/play with space, there isn't even a seek bar, nothing. It's as if the extension thinks I have already used it for 30 days when in fact I haven't at all. I have confirmed this multiple times by disabling/re-enabling, re-installing, I tried everything. I'd gladly pay for it if I knew it actually worked and I liked the features, I mean it's only $1.50/yr. But as it is, I honestly don't know anything.
- by Firefox user 14373626, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5I get it, developers need to make money, but switching a free extension to a paid annual subscription one is such a crap move. This one should have been kept free and then a new paid "pro" version should have been added for people who might want whatever future features the developer claims they may add someday.Hey there - hit me up if you want a license. I've been giving early users free licenses.
Also, as part of these changes I added some dope keyboard shortcuts and the ability to pop videos out of the page. And I'm very interested in adding more features - just let me know how to improve it!
- by Firefox user 15183354, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5Trialware really? For a simple scrubber? I got the extension before payment was required, but I'm not interested in your free key when I can write a similar userscript for myself in 15 minutes.
- by tar, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5Bait and switch - this add-on has silently switched to being a paid add-on. Uninstalled. In my opinion, if they are willing to surprise users with sudden fees, they are probably willing to try other dishonest tricks to make money.Hey there - apologies about that. Two things: 1) It took me a while to get around implementing the licensing system. 2) Users paying for it means I have 0 incentive to install trackers or any other nefarious thing. Also, it means I'll actually maintain and add features. I understand that a lot of users are upset about now having to pay for me writing all of this code and managing the extension. Email me and I'll give you a free license code.

- by Firefox user 14642834, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5was useful until they recently switched it to a paid service without notifying or mention it to anyone. pretty unsavory tactic imo. uninstalled.
EDIT: FOUND A REPLACEMENT! Search for "Video Controls for Instagram by David Cavar"Apologies! As I've said elsewhere, it took me some time to actually implement the licensing system. Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll give you a license.
Also, email me if you have ideas for more features to add.
