How to disable the 1 glow effects around the video player?

When you first install the Turn Off the Lights Chrome extension, we keep it simple. Default is all those features disabled such as the glow effects and other visual effects. Only the basic light on and off, when you click on the gray lamp button. If you mean the “Atmosphere Lighting”, that shows you the glow effects around playing HTML5 video or YouTube video. You can disable that feature on the Turn Off the Lights Options page.
