Post image for How to: Remove Youtube’s new subscription / autoplay gray bar

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:

https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/jpajpedkdbbffnpjopibeolebkjdiikp

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:

http://adblockplus.org/en/installation

After installing it go to Tools > Adblock Plus > and click “Add filter” > Paste in the following lines
youtube.com##DIV#quicklist-tray
youtube.com##DIV#quicklist-bar-container
youtube.com##DIV#quicklist-bar

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!
