Bring annotation support back to YouTube™!
On January 15 2019, YouTube decided to discontinue annotations. While the feature was frequently abused, it did have many legitimate use cases, such as games, corrections, and a form of commentary that could be toggled on and off. The removal left many older videos obsolete. Annotations Restored fixes this by searching for any archived annotation files and displaying them if found.
LATEST CHANGES (1.2)
- Close button works properly (finally)
- Speech bubbles can now be interacted with
- Support for 10 different locales (de, es, fr, it, ja, ko, ru, vi, zh_CN, zh_TW)
The extension will automatically look for a copy of a video's annotations online and display them if found. Annotation files (.xml) that you have saved locally can also be loaded into the current video using the popup.
Access your data for www.youtube.com
- Required to load the annotations into the video player
