Au­dio Only YouTube


TechLife Australia - - DISCOVER -

WHILE MOST OF us have playlists of videos on YouTube, we aren’t al­ways too keen on watch­ing the video, but rather pre­fer to lis­ten to the au­dio, es­pe­cially when it comes to mu­sic. It’s easy enough to just nav­i­gate away from the YouTube tab on your browser if you aren’t too keen on watch­ing the video, but the video is still hog­ging your band­width and po­ten­tially play­ing you un­wanted ads. Au­dio Only YouTube, as the name sug­gests, is a Chrome plugin that dis­ables the video on YouTube and saves in­ter­net us­age as much as 50%. In­stead of the video, a thumb­nail is dis­played, but the im­age res­o­lu­tion is low and it will ap­pear blurry. Us­ing the plugin is as easy as in­stalling it from the Chrome Store, open­ing a video on YouTube and click­ing on the add-on’s icon in the tool­bar. Ev­ery time the plugin is en­abled or dis­abled, the YouTube video will re­fresh, so there will be a slight lag when click­ing on the icon, which ap­pears red when in use and greyed-out when dis­abled.
