  • I have used this add-on for a long time. Despite having to follow additional steps, which are very easy, the add-on is a must for watching YouTube videos. I also give 5 stars for the communication of the developer knowing what has to happen for this to continue to work.
  • Ok, it works now.
    Thanks for reporting this. I just released an update to address the recent issues, but the extension now requires users to enter a personal YouTube Data API key. Instructions for setting up a free YouTube Data API key, and an explanation for why this is required, can be found here:

  • Thanks for the instructions for adding api key, it works now. Google sure likes making things difficult.

  • Occasionally and unpredictably stops displaying the ratings bars (maybe a YouTube API quota issue per the 0.0.42 release notes?) but this add-on is otherwise very well designed and has no doubt saved me hundreds, if not thousands, of wasted clicks and page loads over the past year or two.

  • When it works, it works flawlessly. However, sometimes, for no apparent reason, it just stops working for a few hours. Unfortunate, but not necessarily within the developer's control.

  • It seems really inconsistent as to whether it wants to work or not. Half the time it works fine, half the time it doesn't work at all.

  • It works, and the essential customization is there. Excellent!
  • very okay
  • I used Ratings Preview for YouTube™ for the longest time; and after a year since its last update, today the extension no longer works—RIP.

    Found you, it works —keep up the great work and thanks.
