Terrible Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Quite buggy, unstable and causes a lot of problems, it's not worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I wish I could give less than one star to a plugin that causes quite a bit of issues and doesn't even do the one thing it claims to do in the first place.

Dissables 1080p option Rated 1 out of 5 stars

There is no 1080p option in youtube when I have this addon enabled, but when I disable it I can play videos in 1080p

Breaks Google Maps @#$%! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Had to remove it in order to get Google Maps working again.

Completely useless. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This is supposed to buffer videos on Youtube even when paused, but it doesn't, no matter what the settings say. Worthless.

Weird HTML issue Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This addon added weird unauthorized HTML when I sent a PM to someone on ProBoards. And as others have said, it breaks Google Maps. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.

No longer working Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Used to buffer, but not play videos - doesn't do that any longer. Also has massive problems with autoplay-playlists on websites, and autoplay on youtube itself. No longer useful until fixed.


To the developer,

I discovered that it was your addon that made my Google maps completely dead: there is no zoom in or out, I cannot move the map with the cursor, etc.

Could you solve this HUGE BUG. Thanks.

Thanks for this addon but this bug needs to be corrected.

Breaks Google Maps, and limits to 720p Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I think it's a problem with youtube's API or something, but I can't stand being limited to 720p. 1080p doesn't even show as available.

Also, the maps thing is a huge pain.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great extention but with two bugs:

* If you have "Ensure that videos are buffered even if they are paused" checked on under "Control embedded videos," then any embedded YouTube video will stop dead in its tracks about 60-70% into it. This is demonstrable.

* If you have "Control embedded videos" check on AT ALL (regardless of what combinations of settings you have chosen), then google maps WILL NOT work.

Tested on the last three or four versions of Firefox. Currently 31.0.

Good but a bug on Google Plus Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice addon but make a bug on Google Plus
with this actived, I can NOT write on a posted video on Google plus page
With firefox
Otherwise to can do it, just UNCHECK " Control embedded videos"

confirmed: not working with addon Rated 3 out of 5 stars

yep, I can confirm the problem reported by Captain K; I'm also not able to click anything within the site.
If I disable this addon and reload the maps page it works again.
(luckyly you can enable/disable this addon anytime without restarting ff :D )

18 July 2014 - crashes Google Maps Rated 1 out of 5 stars

As of this morning (18th July 2014), having this extension enabled prevents Google Maps from entering interactive mode. A page will load at whatever co-ordinates are in the URL, but cannot be searched from, scrolled, zoomed, or interacted with even at the settings menu. The slight "flicker" that happens normally when the page is fully loaded, does not happen. I've cleared all caches and tried individually disabling all extensions and can repeatably and reliably demonstrate that it is having this one enabled which causes the problem.

Doesn't work in Private Browsing Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Its working great in normal windows. But in Private Browsing, opening a Youtube video (on YouTube) doesn't show the controls and also it doesn't honour any of the settings. Overall its a great addon.

Some bugs need working out... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Using FF28 and a week ago could not comment on YouTube videos. When I tried to it would just say "opening..." and nothing more. Restarted FF safe mode and worked. Disabled this addon and I'm now able to leave comments. ALSO - why does this addon only allow automatic HD video at 720p and won't even allow me to select 1080p. With this addon disabled, I'm able to select 1080p. A few bugs need to be worked out. NOTE: I tried FF29 and had the same problems, I didn't like the look of 29 so I went back to 28.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This interference with the new google maps in firefox 29.0.1. Turn of this add-on and the new google maps works just fine.
