Sometimes you see a video in your recommendations with an interesting title or eye-catching thumbnail and clicks on it, just to find out the content wasn't what you were expecting or it was a clickbait. This extension enables you to take a closer look on the video content before actually clicking on it, by peeking the:

  • Video content
  • Audio transcription or subtitles
  • Description
  • Comments
  • Channel

You can also view the:

  • Thumbnail in the highest resolution available
  • Full titles

To do that, you just need to click on the recommended video's menu (the three dots button) and choose the option you want. It works on pretty much all pages, and is compatible with both YouTube's desktop and mobile layouts, and dark theme.

before youtube had thumbnail hover previews there was an extension that would randomly pick images from different parts of the video and this helped you avoid scam videos, for some reason this extension no longer works, and since youtube now feels like playing the full video when hovering over it (which I find annoying for this counts as a view), this extension is the next best thing. thank you for making it.

🤩 you saved my night. I am the pickiest youtube user on the planet (super duper legit ocd) and I desperately have needed a way to click through videos I am iffy about watching without having to load the whole page and have it add to my watch history and then mess with my youtube suggested algorithm. I was about to have a really bad week I feel like without this extension because I have been looking for this feature for years? now? <3 THANK YOU :D
