What is YouTubeDiscordPresence?
'YouTubeDiscordPresence' is a Chrome extension that allows you to show your friends and the community on Discord what you're currently watching on YouTube or listening to on YouTube Music. It works in a similar way as the Spotify rich presence on Discord, appearing only when a video is playing and disappearing when the video is paused or there is no video. Customizable settings allow you to personalize your experience. Please note, a second desktop application needs to be installed for this functionality.

In order for YouTubeDiscordPresence to work, a second desktop application needs to be installed on your computer based on the GitHub instructions:

The current version only supports the 64-bit version of Windows. YouTubeDiscordPresence does not support the browser version of Discord. Expect compatibility for other operating systems in the future.

YouTubeDiscordPresence works similar to the Spotify rich presence on Discord—it only appears when a video is playing and disappears when there is no video or the video is paused. Idling and searching are not displayed.

Maximize your experience with YouTubeDiscordPresence by customizing your settings! To the settings page, click on the small YTDP icon on the top right of the browser under the extensions (puzzle piece) icon.
