Author's Description



This script is not being maintained anymore.

Feel free to fork (but change the YouTube API key).



What it does

  • If link text doesn't contain a URL, the video title will be added as tooltip instead.
  • A crossed out link indicates that the video is unavailable.
  • Move cursor over links to see preview images.
  • URLs are rewritten to clean HTTPS addresses.
If you left-click a video link, the video gets embedded and started.
  • Time offsets like "t=3m21s" are preserved.
  • You can still follow links normally by middle click, Ctrl + click etc.
  • Some uploaders don't want their videos to be embedded. These videos will open in a new tab.
  • Embed modes:
    1. inline (link gets replaced with video)
    2. draggable, non-scrolling in-page popup (default)
    3. freely resizable popup window (doesn't close when you leave the page)
Also:
  • Support for Vimeo, LiveLeak, Dailymotion, vidme, WorldStarHipHop, Vine, Coub and Streamable
  • Titles are cached to reduce traffic and delay on subsequent visits.
To change settings: Monkey toolbar icon → "User Script Commands" → "Set up YouTube Link Title..."
