Wonderful plugin but as of 01/11/2022 it no longer works. Looks like Youtube have had another page update. Hopefully the developer updates this

The whole "mark as watched" button has started not appearing for some reason. It started maybe 2-3 days ago. After several reloads of the page and entering the plugin config page and making sure its updated etc.. (basically focusing on the mod), it suddenly appears again.. but if you close and reload the window it might dissapear again.
