Looking for a new plugin that enhances the features and controls like "Particle", which doesn't work anylonger due to a violation of some rights.
I really miss the features, like full browser video, disable autoplay or volume via mousewheel..
Does anyone know a nice alternative?

Couple of questions.
Is Particle a chrome web store extension?
Did it stop working because of the new Youtube/Google Material Design?

Before I recommend anything, I want to make sure you are aware of recent Chrome extensions being hijacked for malware attacks. Google Chrome News and extension reviews

Are you familiar with Tampermonkey and userscripts?

not aware of either malware attacks (looks like none of my extensions are at risk)
not either of userscripts.

I can say that particle still works, but I have to re-activate it anytime i start up chrome. it's always disabled again because of violation of chrome web store license violation (my translation from german)

Do some research on Tampermonkey, a chrome extension and get some general info on userscripts.
Tampermonkey - Google Search


YouTube +
About | YouTube + | Userscripts | OpenUserJS

I would also suggest you keep up with news from gHacks.

tbh I hoped for just an alternative plugin. too much on my plate currently to dive into another whole new topic..
thanks for the tips anyway, will try if I ever find time.

thanks for the update! uninstalled particle rightaway, luckily I had it deactivated since this crap started.
will look into iridium sometimes. but no time for learning more about userscripts currently.
