Hello to all FromLinux readers ..
Well this is my first collaboration in this space and I want to do it through this post. On some occasions when we are watching videos on the popular YouTube page, it usually happens that their configuration is not always the best according to our bandwidth and on some occasions, the automatic configuration of their quality is not always is the best way to visualize them.
As my own experience, I usually use the recommended quality in the YouTube player, but in some cases the quality went to the bottom even when it had enough network width to reproduce with decent quality (360p).
Nothing that cannot be solved by changing the settings ... Although this was sometimes annoying (having to configure each video manually), so I decided to find out how to improve or adjust the quality of the videos on YouTube.
And I came across the following script.
Yays. Which is a lightweight and non-intrusive userscript that controls video playback and adjusts the preferred player size and playback quality on YouTube.
This script offers us the following modifications according to the information on its page:
Quality: Automatically adjust quality when video starts
(144p, 240p, 360p, 480p, 720p, 1080p)
Playback size: Default player size can be set (Auto, Wide, Fit)
Playback status at startup: Start, Pause, Stop, Auto pause, Auto stop
It also indicates that it uses the YouTube API, which is why it works without any problem.
Installation on Chromium-based browsers:
First we go to the Chrome Web Store and add the application Tampermonkey.
Which allows us to manage different scripts that we use in the browser.
Second, we go to the Yays script page and click on the install option in the upper right, then the Tampermonkey extension will tell us if we want to install the script, we accept and that's it.
Now we only have to adjust the playback options to our needs or preferences. For that, on Youtube when viewing a video of your choice in the part where it shows us the video information, it will show you an icon in the form of a gear, through which we can adjust the Quality, Size and State of reproduction of the same.
When you enable this script later, all the videos will start with the configuration that has been chosen previously.

That is all I hope it will be useful to you 😀
