Gave it a try Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This actually does have everything I was looking in an addon form, rather than just a standard userscript. With the userscripts, they can decrease performance a bit while a direct addon is seamlessly integrated into the software.
After installing, by default it kills all the ads on YouTube, it creates a 720p viewing screen, disables all annotations (which are part of some ads), and sets it up so that you can download it if you wish and select it to loop if you wish.
The only downside I didn't like is that it the settings were a bit tucked away that I didn't notice until after examining the pictures a few times.
The settings button is right beside your profile picture or signin on YouTube. After hitting that button, a plethora of options opens up. The main one I really wanted and was after was the DASH Playback.
For those that don't know. DASH Playback is the new system that they enabled to make videos play faster on higher-speed internet users. The downside to this, it always has to rebuffer and redownload if you pause it, skip through it, go to replay a section you just listened to, and requires you to be constantly connected to the internet.
I normally am on the go with my laptop and I do watch videos for different reasons but mainly I do want to rewatch them while either waiting in the car, in a waiting room, in a hotel without wifi or if I just want to conserve battery life.
The best thing about unchecking the DASH Playback also allows you rewatch the video flawlessly without having to wait for it to redownload and rebuffer, which uses up more bandwidth.
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Just freshly installed and I love it.
It works fine with Panoramic view and on any website that I've tried it on. Only downside is that it doesn't capture Java based items such as any video on Youtube.
All-in-all, it's quite handy and more than a "glorified prt sc button".
