- Youtube Controls Under Player (needs user-script)


This style was deleted by its author, Roy192. The reason given was Use the script instead: Instead, try:

Youtube Hide Cookie Message
or other Youtube themes.

Places the controls of the new Youtube UI under the player, removes the transparency, and keeps the controls visible at all times. This also works for full-screen but does not decrease the ridiculous size of the controls.

To use this style, install Firefox and Stylish. If you already have Stylish, make sure this site is allowed to run JavaScript.

(Though installing Stylish is recommended, if your browser supports user scripts, you can also install this style as a user script.)

Found a bug that I can't solve: the controls don't update when not hovering over them, defeating half the purpose of this style. I can however fix this with a user-script, and I did:

the new script also includes a few tricks to get the colors back to what they were, and the non-full-screen has smaller controls (33px instead of 40px).

Update: You do not need to install this style with the script, the script on its own will be enough (it inserts its own version of this style).

Added .ytp-subtitles-player-content { bottom: 49px!important; } so that the captions (or subtitles) don't go up and down.
Added .watch-stage-mode #theater-background::after { content: ''; bottom: -40px; left: 0px; position: absolute; background-color: black; height: 40px; width: 100%; } so that in theater mode (press the button next to full-screen) the background to the right and left is the height as the whole video and its controls.
