The YouTube Ageist / Description
You're 15 years old, and your college age brother just sent you a hilarious video. You gleefully click on the link only to discover that, to your horror, you've been discriminated against because of your age. You wonder how something like this can still happen in today's society.
Free yourself from the tyranny! "The YouTube Ageist" lets you watch whatever video you want, and you DON'T have to prove that you're mature enough to watch it (because it's YouTube, nobody's mature).
Ageism is the practice of discriminating against those of a certain age group. The name of this extension is slightly misleading since it implies that it promotes ageism. It does not.
How it works:
- Google doesn't place this restriction on embedded videos for some reason. This extension uses the video's embed link and places it right into YouTube, so you feel right at home.
- You can test it yourself on this video by GoodNeighborStuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oAkM0K_HRs
- Unrestricted videos may lack features such as "Theater Mode" and the suggested/related videos you usually see on the right
- You may need to hit the refresh button when you're watching a playlist. This will try to be fixed in later versions.
- If the video you're trying to watch can't be embedded, you may be out of luck
