Summary

PlayerTube is a free browser extension that is used for editing and changing up the style of the current YouTube player, to a more older (and better) look. PlayerTube has a good amount of features that can be either enabled or disabled from its menu. More than that, users can customize the style of their player and share it across the web for others to use.

Latest update (v1.7.1):

  • Improvements to resize script (using custom detection v2.1).
  • 2012 & 2011 CSS improvements.
  • Custom theme documentation and guide.
  • Make configuration menu buttons look a bit nicer.
  • Improvements to all extension pages.
User reviews
It's a bit broken, especially the 2006 player. In any case, it's better than a modern, flat player :)

I really like it, but there is a problem with the Fully extended progress bar setting
