for me it works fine anyone that is having an issue you have to enable hiding the videos in the settings of the extension

Doesn't work at all. I installed this because my homepage is all videos I've seen before. Installed the extension, refreshed Youtube, still all the same videos that I've seen before. This extension just doesn't seem to have had any effect, and I'm confused why because the most recent update was only a couple months ago.
