Turn Off the Lights is a browser extension that allows users to dim everything on their screen except for Flash and HTML5 videos they're watching, minimizing distractions and making for a more pleasant viewing experience. A lamp icon is displayed in the browser's toolbar or in the address bar, and users can click on this icon to make the area surrounding the video dim. Clicking outside the video restores the screen back to normal. Users can adjust the opacity of the screen dimmer and select a color other than black if desired.
The extension can also be set to dim the screen automatically, and there are a variety of YouTube-specific features as well to bring an object to the front. A keyboard shortcut gives users quick access to the program's services.
YouTube features, such as the YouTube AutoHD, make sure that videos are automatically set in the highest resolution possible on YouTube. This way videos will play in 720p, 1080p or even 4K without any settings needed to be enabled on YouTube. It also saves you from that four clicks you had to make till you reached the option on the YouTube settings page. This is one of the most used and most powerful features in this browser extension for video lovers. The YouTube AutoWide help you make the video player automatically go to the widest player mode. To have a more video content available on your screen and more focus to the video itself, without any other disturbing element around. AutoPlay is another great feature that dims the screen when there is a video playing or when you click on the play button on that YouTube or HTML5 video. If the video is ended or you click on the pause button, it returns automatically back to the normal website style.
Atmosphere Lighting is one of the most amazing and beautiful creation to make the video enjoyable and vivid. This feature generates light effects around the video player that correspond to the video content. And this with one single click on the playing video and the extension do the rest. The video ended or paused, it slowly returns back to the normal style. In the Turn Off the Lights option page you can choose between 'one solid', 'four solid' or the 'real colors' effect.
Dynamic Background that'll make your cinema experience more exciting. When you enable the feature in the option page you choose between five amazing backgrounds. Dynamic background feature included the space, cloud, pulsating blocks, rain drops or a fish tank as a moving background. And when you dim the lights on YouTube, it automatically shows stars behinds the video player. It's what you don't expect from a simple browser extension.
Eye Protection applies to the whole screen, it adds dark opacity layer on top of the current web page. With the possibility to click throughout the layer without losing the dark layer element. And can be easily deactivated with a click on the gray lamp button in the omnibox or work bar.
When you dim the page, it at default a 80% opacity layer on top of the current web page. But of course you can change the opacity and layer color in the option page. As background color you choose between more than about 16.8 million colors. That's been a lot of numbers but basically you can change and customize it to your own feeling.
Mouse Actions helps you navigate easily to a website without losing any comfort of reading or watching a video online. You can activate the search lamp around your mouse cursor, so you can click or select text without the lights going back on.
