Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Very cute, great colors, and not busy nor distracting. Great theme!
Will never again use You Tube without it Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This add-on is invaluable! I have never experienced any sort of glitch, and I use it daily. First of all, when I open YT I am greeted with a very clean page. That is not only nice on the eyes but lowers distractions for the brain. Unnecessary background processes are filtered out, creating a faster experience. I especially enjoy the option to stop videos from autoplaying, and not just the video coming next, but the one you just clicked on. Sometimes I just want to click on a video so I can add it to a specific playlist besides "watch later" or read more about it and don't want the video to start playing automatically. Occasionally I forget to click pause before it starts at an inopportune time, such as during class (while hunting for a good quality video to add to an upcoming lesson) ... and when I do remember to pause the video immediately, it never fails that I have to wait for the video to load first. Maybe I just want to be able to display the whole title or read a description of a video without an unexpected loud blast of video starting b/c I forgot the volume was too high. Autoplay and auto start have both caused me some embarrassment. This may not seem like a big deal to some ppl, but for me it's one less thing to deal with, and I have too many details to remember in my life with my ADD and forgetful brain.
Also, I love the cinema mode. Watching the video with the dark background and soft glow around it makes it really pop and easier to focus on without having to make it completely full screen. You can choose from many different color background options, or I recommend using the magic color option at the very far right end of the color choice lineup (looks like a multicolored thumbnail which is a little bit larger than the others). The effect is really cool b/c the glow around the video matches the colors in each scene; thus, it changes as the video plays, and it's beautiful. My students love that feature and holds their attention. If it works for my Kindergartners, older students, other adults, and me, then you will most likely have a much more positive viewing experience with that option enabled. I haven't even investigated all the options, so who knows what other cool stuff it can do.
Again, I will never be able to use You Tube without this add-on! Oh, it won't work with IE, which doesn't matter to me b/c I hate IE and would never use that browser anyway. It works beautifully both with Firefox and Chrome. I use it on both browsers.
