In addition all great features, this script is well maintained, the author keeps it updated and constantly improving.
Beautiful script. Does what it says without problems, includes a beautiful and easy-to-use config dialog, and has tons of desirable features. For example:
I used to use MTube to stretch my video window, but MPlayerPlug-in had a tendency to freeze up my Firefox when used with YouTube.
I tried several other scripts which could force high-quality video and prevent auto-play, but most of them were either glitchy, ugly, or interfered with Video DownloadHelper. (I prefer to use the same tool for all video sites)
I finally found this while looking for a script to turn off video captions and annotations and it was love at first sight.
I wish more scriptwrights would put this kind of care and effort into their work. It makes me kind of embarassed to have been too busy to either update or remove my own obsolete scripts.
This script offers many options for customizing YouTube, from changing video size to removing elements to hiding comments.
Definitely recommended for YouTube users.
This script is awesome!
I'm glad you allow anything to be customised. I have a small laptop and don't want HD by default. "Fastest quality available" is just perfect for me as default. I also love the auto-play prevention. Finally I can have this feature without the need of FlashBlock blocking the Youtube player by default.
However, I found one little bug: When you switch video size from "1x" to "1.25x" for example, and then switch back to "1x", the information box on the right slips under the video and the video is shifted to the center and top of the screen. That means I cannot get back Youtube's default view until I reload the page.
But apart from that, it's great. Thank you!
Great script; laid out clean and fairly easy to modify if need be.
This is a well-maintained script that gives you a TON of control over YouTube. It does as much as 5 other scripts combined and then it does even more. It lets you change everything from the size/quality of videos to their autoplay/autodownload behavior. It adds (sharable) direct-download links, one for each video quality level. The size of a video can be changed without even having to stop it. It can even automatically press the "more" button in video descriptions for you. This is HIGHLY recommended for any YouTube user.
To configure it:
1) Go to YouTube and then right-click the Greasemonkey status bar icon
2) Go to User Script Commands... > YousableTubeFix Configuration
A window will come up with a all sorts of settings - more than I mentioned above.
BTW, most of the concerns addressed in previous reviews have already been fixed. As for speed, it's as fast as Greasemonkey (and your connection) allows it to be.
This is the absolutely best Youtube userscript ever! Everything is customizable, nothing forced onto the users. And it is not overloaded with fancy stuff – only the things average users actually really need.
Also this is the only script that has perfect prevention of Autoplay. Other scripts I found have problems stopping the video immediately before it plays. Then you still can hear sound for one second. This is of course annoying and so I'm very glad I found your script. It does the job perfectly.
Fantastic script. Very robust code, works flawlessly and reliably. Professionally done, with a config ability. Does pretty much everything i wanted it to do (except provide shaded page for video viewing).
update: I highly recommend everyone who installs this script to also install the fantastic Youtube "Lights Out" script as well to improve viewing experience.
Hate to beat a dead horse, but like (almost) everyone else says, this is great. Probably the best youtube script for majority of folks, depending on what you want. Works well and regularly updated.
