A lightweight userscript to set the default viewing mode for YouTube videos to Theater Mode.

Doesn't use cookies or jQuery.

This script also disables SPF in order to set the video to Theater Mode.

Thanks:


Differences between other userscripts:

  • Youtube: New Player + Cinema Mode - This userscript uses cookies to set the mode to Cinema Mode (a.k.a. Theater Mode). Script also has to reload the page once the cookie is initially set. If you do not mind cookies, this is a good alternative to my script.
  • YouTube Cinema Code - Well-coded userscript (my script actually borrows code to disable SPF!). However, script requires jQuery and also does too many things (can be seen as a pro).
  • Yays! - This used to be my favorite, but this stopped working for me awhile back. Script is also quite large.
