Few days ago YouTube became more ‘bloated’ with a new feature. The gray autoplay bar!
Most of you guys must have noticed it, It is horrible and set Autoplay to “ON” by default; You have to turn it off everytime.
I like to drop a comment sometimes after watching a video, Now I don’t even read comments as it jumps to the next video which I don’t want to watch!
So, Here’s few ways and tips to get rid of that bar…
1. GreaseMoney script (Firefox)
Install GreaseMoney plugin for Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/748
Then load this user scripts in it: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/82587
The bar is now gone.
2. Youtube Subscription Bar And Autoplay Remover (Google Chrome)
This one is a Google Chrome extensions that you can get from here:
Just hit Install and you’re done.
3. AdBlock Plus
AdBlock Plus is a browser extension that works on both Firefox, Chrome and Safari Here’s the download like:
After installing it go to Tools > Adblock Plus > and click “Add filter” > Paste in the following lines
Now hit Save and the bar should stop appearing.
4. Removing URL extra parameters
This one isn’t permanent, In the URL of the video, delete everything from “
&playnext=....” onward. So that the new URL should look like youtube.com/watch?v=LiFElaNc0m , Then hit enter!
