What is ytcFilter?
"ytcFilter" is a chrome extension that captures messages from Youtube chat based on filter rules. It provides preset filters for various cases like English tagged messages, messages with Japanese or alphanumeric characters, or messages from staff. For more advanced usage, it allows filters based on nickname, moderated text, the channel owner's messages, membership status, verified users, super chat, and even regular expressions. It works perfectly with standard Youtube chat and even in embedded chat in 3rd party websites, or Youtube popout chat. The extension also integrates Youtube's block/report buttons to fight spamming. Plus, it archives all messages for later reference.

A useful extension. Started getting random out of memory errors today, they went away as soon as I turned off the ytcfilter. Waiting for the fix.

Sometimes it does not catch the translation from the chat. You have to add the same filter more than once and only then it works.
