Better Youtube +

Better YouTube + works to improve the YouTube experience by providing quick access to features we'd all like to have from the get-go.

  • It defaults playback to 1080p if able to.
  • It allows quick thumbnail access of the video.
  • It allows setting the loop mode easily.
  • It allows setting the loop mode to a ranged set.

  • It allows volume control through the mouse-wheel when hovering over the player.
  • It allows for quick access to the YouTube video slug.
  • It allows for NonStop watch mode. (i.e, no "Are you still there?" dialog.)
  • It shows volume level as you scroll.
  • It lets Unix, Linux, and MacOS systems have the ability to download the video using native app calls.
