Turn Off the Lights is a free browser extension developed by Stefan vd. It is available as a plugin for Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari, Maxthon and Yandex Browser. There is also a Turn Off the Lights bookmarklet for other browsers.

Turn Off the Lights is a browser extension that lets users dim everything on their screen except the Flash or HTML5 video they're watching, minimizing distractions and making for a more pleasant viewing experience for the internet users. A gray lamp icon is displayed in the browser menu bar when a video is detected; users click on the icon to make the screen surrounding the video fade. Clicking outside the video restores the rest of the screen. Users can adjust the opacity of the screen blocking 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.

Turn Off the Lights has a 4.76-star rating at the Chrome extension website with over 7458 reviews, and has been featured on Google Blog, Lifehacker, MacLife, CNET, and New York Times.

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.

Betty Ann Whitten
This is one of my favorite Chrome extensions. Because I am able to focus only on the video playing, it works perfectly in the classrooom and when added to student Chromebooks it's even better.
