...for old times' sake. Play entries of YouTube's watch later list without advancing to next title.
----- DEPRECATED -----
You may still use this extension, but it will no longer be maintained.
Please use Tampermonkey and the following script:
Assumption: You use YouTube's watch later list not as a real playlist but to collect interesting (and not necessarily related) videos.
Problem: When you start a single video from the playlist page, the following videos (related or not) will be played too, automatically.
Old solution: An extension called NextVid Stopper which does not work anymore.
New solution: This extension ;) It redirects the start of a single video from the watch later page to the single video player instead of the playlist player. You can still click the "Play All" button to play the list as a whole.
v0.2: The single play behaviour can be configured for all playlists or for watch lists only.
v0.1: Initial release, works only for the watch list.
If you have the watch later list already playing in one tab and, in another tab, open a single video from the watch later list YouTube somehow makes an additional redirect and you get two entries in the browser history.
"storage" to save the options mode to chrome
"tabs" to verify that a request comes from the watch later list
"webRequest", "webRequestBlocking" to redirect the request to the correct player
"*://www.youtube.com/" to access YouTube
