When you are on YouTube website (and not on an external YouTube video player). And you click on the play button of this video player and activate the turn off the lights extension (to dims the web page). The video starts playing, but about 5 seconds later, the audio doubled and you hearing the same audio track 2 times at once. 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.
Follow the below steps to fix this issue:
- Open your browser extension page, example for:
Google Chrome: chrome://extensions/
Safari: Go to the Safari -> Preference -> Extensions tab.
- Click on the “Options” link, and it open a new page.
- And uncheck the “blur” feature
- Restart your 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.
But why I am hearing double?
Turn Off the Lights dynamic recreate the code from the original website and blur this with the CSS hardware filter. And YouTube plays always the video automatically when you open his video website.
