Do you hear sound double on YouTube? Then you are on the correct help. This will help you solve the issue in your web browser.
When you are on the YouTube website (and not on an external YouTube video player). You click on the play button of this video player and activate the Turn Off the Lights browser extension (to dim the web page). You experience that video starts playing, but about 5 seconds later, the audio doubles and you hear the same audio track 2 times at once. This sound double can create a bad experience and confusion about what is happening on this page.
The reason that can possibly create this issue is one on time with the video content and the other one with a 5-second delay. That is possible if you have enabled the “blur” feature in the Turn Off the Lights options page.
Note: This issue has been fixed in the latest Turn Off the Lights browser extension version 4 engine. That uses now the latest CSS render effect to add a Gaussian blur effect below the video player content.

Google Chrome: chrome://extensions/
Microsoft Edge: edge://extensions/
Safari: Go to the Safari, Preference, Extensions tab
Yandex Browser: yandex://extensions/
- Click on the Options link, and it opens a new page
- And uncheck the “blur” feature
- Restart your web browser
What is that “blur”?
The blur feature is one of the basic settings in the Turn Off the Lights extension to make the website a bit vague. And keep the video sharp on top of the web page. It is like a dark layer on top with a Gaussian blur effect inside it.
But why I am hearing the sound double?
