This has to be my favorite script of all times, I seriously can't imagine using YouTube without it anymore. It is such a simple, yet insanely effective way to filter out all the garbage. I'd even pay for this! :)
Works great, just as advertised. However with the new subscription box, no longer get the ratings there. Everywhere else seems to be fine. Please update! Thanks
Youtube is a horrendous waste of time with out it. Just install it. NOW!
By the way, add https://*.youtube.* to your include pages if you are in the habit of always using https like some paranoid freaks (me)
This is really a problem with YouTube - they should've done that long ago.
Displaying the green/red ups/downs ration is a pretty good warning of crappy videos - when half or more are red, you know it's garbage (something other than advertised, fake, not the real thing, of no value..).
Often you can tell by the title - e.g. "MUST WATCH!!!!" = "haha you thought this was for real" - or by suggestive content - but sometimes you can't.
* it wastes your time
* it makes you angry about someone being so rude and getting views at your expense
* the bastard that posted the video gets views
One suggestion though - make the bar same as video thumbnail - it's currently oversized.
Seems to work everywhere on youtube (front page, searches, sidebar) and provides all the needed information. Agree with some of the other comments that a smaller bar (or number rating) might be better than the current large ratings bar, but for me it's a minor nitpick.
It's a nice and useful script but the rate bar is too big. It should be half of the size and placed beside the thumbnail, not below it.
I'm glad to have this script, but not sure I'll keep it. The ratings bars are placed awkwardly below thumbnails instead of beside them with the other information, which makes the information a little harder to scan for. They end up so wide, especially in search results, that they're difficult to read. A maximum width of, say, 250 px would probably be easier to scan over quickly. And then they would also fit underneath the title/uploader with the rest of the information.
It would also be helpful if the vote numbers were simplified so that you don't have to do so much mental math, for example it could say "123 votes, 93% disliked." It's cool to have the exact like/dislike breakdown but all you really need is the majority percentage and the total number of votes.
Good script overall, and definitely better than the other one that requires you to rollover a button for each individual video. But not perfect yet.
This is the best Userscript I've seen. For anything. It really does need Chrome compatibility though (via Tampermonkey or Blank Canvas).
One of the most well-made scripts for Youtube yet! This thing displays like/dislike bars for each and every video on the main page, search results, and the related videos tab. Saves a bunch of time, and doesn't clutter the screen too much. Ooh, and the best part: no more getting Rick-Rolled!
Please update this to work with the latest version.
So many YouTube videos are a stupid waste of time, despite the misleading title or thumbnail.
This helps to identify whether they're terrible before you click on them and waste 90 seconds of your life and then have to waste 30 seconds more writing a comment about how it wasted 90 seconds of your life.
