I can't deal with translation in the existence of the useless YouTube bar, It shows up every second and takes longer to hide by itself, I do seek forward and backward using arrow keys, is there a way to hide it or move it to the top or decrease its size?

  • This seems like something that would be possible with a userscript. You use them with a plugin in your browser that runs custom javascript on a specific page or domain.

In order to accomplish this, you need to modify the page in your browser. There are several ways to do this, but one of the simplest is a JavaScript bookmarklet.

Here is an intro to the idea and use of bookmarklets.

Here is a guide to implementing your specific request using a bookmarklet.

Or, if you already understand bookmarklets, here is code for this one:

javascript:(function(){var goaway=".ytp-chrome-top,.ytp-chrome-bottom{display:none;}";if("\v"=="v"){document.createStyleSheet().cssText=goaway}else{var tag=document.createElement("style");tag.type="text/css";document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0].appendChild(tag);tag[(typeof document.body.style.WebkitAppearance=="string")?"innerText":"innerHTML"]=goaway}})();
  • the second method wokred but i have to do that with every video and that's a way annoying is there anyway to generalize that on all videos unless I want to disable that and does the second video works with firefox Jun 17, 2020 at 17:14
