Dang Good Add-on (despite the Mozilla mandated spam) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Over the past several months, YTHD has done everything I've wanted w/o a problem. ie It allows me to turn annotations on/off in just two clicks. For fun, I've played w/ the other features and they work exactly as advertised. I agree w/ others here that the constant update spam is out of control but since the problem seems to be w/ Mozilla (again), I'm just gonna turn of the auto update feature for a couple of months.

Spam Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This addon spams me on daily basis on the two computers that I have installed, every time it updates. It drives me nuts. I had to disable auto-updates.

Please stop this from happening.

I really like this addon, but until you stop spamming your site every day when it updates, I'm giving you two stars.

Edit: Thank you for your reply. I read the blog post. I'm running Noscript, Adblock, LastPass and a host of other addons, yet yours is the only one that insists on opening up your website, every day. Sometimes several times per day.

The add-on itself works as advertised.

With that out of the way, the way it updates is so damn annoying.
The add-on opens a new tab with the dev's website after every single update.

And the updates happen very often.
If you watch a video on youtube, the video pauses, and a tab opens with the dev's website.
This behavior is annoying and I would never consider donating to an add-on with updates like that.

There's not even a box where you can disable the tab-opening feature.
This has annoyed me to the point of writing a review only to bitch about it.
Take your two stars.

Awful way to update, otherwise decent. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This app works pretty well, except when it comes to the default volume of a video. Every time I start a new instance of YouTube, the volume is always set to max, even though I had set it to 40% volume in the add-on's settings. However, it does everything else as promised.

One issue I've had is the way this add-on updates. Every update, which has become a weekly occurrence and is triggered on its own without my knowledge, points me to this awful update page that is also the author's website. Then, the app forces focus on this new tab, disrupting anything you were doing. For these reasons, I am removing this add-on. Don't direct false traffic to your website, it makes this add-on seem like adware.

Bad behavior on updates Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I have read the response to other reviews regarding the new browser window that pops up when this add-on is updated.

I agree with those reviews, and I disagree with the author's response. I never read those screens when they pop up, and I have yet to experience any confusion at not knowing what changes have been made.

It is very BAD net behavior to interrupt what users are doing when an update occurs, regardless of how important you think it is. Please follow the example of other, better-behaved add-ons. Most will launch the information page the next time the browser is restarted by the user. See NoScript or XNotifier for examples.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (38.2.1-signed). 

I Love it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please keep improve this extension.

ONE PROBLEM ON YOUTUBE FOR THE AUTO-P.LAY. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The autoplay functions well that is, if you do not select "Video will autoplay when player loads", then when you get to a youtube page, the video does not start automatically.
There is one exception (a bug for this addon), it is the video that is on a subscription page that does automatically start despite the way I have setup this addon with the option above not enabled.

More I also have the autoplay button that is next to the video on a youtube page off. So, I have this autoplay function not enabled both with this addon and with youtube and yet I still see the video automatically starting on subscription pages.
Ex: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDMnCGlkv4gyFGZo_ZT3atg
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFtEEv80fQVKkD4h1PF-Xqw
and other subscription pages.

Many thanks for this addon, it is excellent and very useful to me.

Not really ok Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Not really comfortable:

1) Half of the times I open a YouTube video, my predefined resolution of 720p is not selected by default, nor it is manually selectable, as it is grayed out from the resolutions list accessible by the "gear" icon. I have to reload the page for this add-on to select the correct resolution.

2) Opens a pop-up toward the dev's website way to frequently, to promote their other add-ons and ask for money.

I'll write it here, until the developer will not stop abuse its extension for advertise his site: http://barisderin.com/?p=1117
Constantly opening... and opening... and opening... and opening this site page - this is unnecessary!

Hello Hronos,

This should not happen. Your Firefox profile seems to be broken. Could you please send us your operating system, Firefox version and add-on version details to our support email address please so that we can look into problem more thoroughly?

Sweetness! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Annotations good-bye!! HD here I come!
I feel like the master of Youtube with this little treasure. I'm no longer bothered by annotations nagging me, and I don't have to be bothered by clicking "HD" every time a video pops up. Also I have full volume control as well as playlist control- totally sweet. I felt like I had to make an account just to review all of the great add-ons and this one made the cut :)

This add-on is perfect!

It runs your favorite HD resolution every time without fail. You can kill annotations, and you can auto start videos!

On a side note... If you have FlashStopper add-on installed to stop those annoying videos you get all over the net that auto play, this will override that setting so you have just youtube vids auto loading!

Thank you so much for this wonderful, perfectly working add-on!
