Replace background YouTube™ videos with more efficient audio, for less distractions.
Radio Mode for YouTube™ removes the video from the page, leaving just the audio, for less distractions.
Ever listen to music on YouTube in the background? Ever see your computer slow down or hear the fans start spinning?
Simply click the Radio icon in the YouTube player to remove the video. If you are playing a playlist, every video will be blanked out automatically.
* This only works with the HTML5 YouTube player. Videos that are forced to play in Flash, such as VEVO, will not work with the plugin.
* This does not save on bandwidth, just CPU usage and potential distractions.
Usage based on a single video playing. CPU usage reduced by ~50%.
