Baking Soda is a Safari extension that replaces custom video players (except the YouTube player) with a minimal HTML video tag.

Baking Soda is more basic than Vinegar. Unlike Vinegar, Baking Soda doesn't block ads or let you switch the video quality. If Baking Soda doesn't work on certain websites, you can easily disable it in the settings.

Note: The "can read information from webpages" text in the permission section is just unfortunate wording. Baking Soda needs access to the web page to find video players and replace them. It's not doing anything creepy!

Better Web Experience

Using this app over the past few weeks has resulted in a far more pleasant web surfing experience. So much of the web involves video content with horrible video players, so forcing the standard across every site makes so many webpages simpler, faster to load, and more elegant.

Great standardisation across the Web

It’s truly great to finally be able to use one familiar set of controls and UI across the vast majority of the web. The conversion to the HTML video player doesn’t work on every single website I’ve tested, but the vast majority play along just fine, so I’m satisfied. As expected, certain features of custom video players, like selecting resolutions, are not available. I’m not sure if it’s technically feasible to implement such features, but as far as the scope of the app being to simplify video playback in Safari, I don’t mind - besides, the extension can be easily disabled on a per-website basis.

I would appreciate the ability to customise the extension pane, if possible. I’d rather not have every single website be listed every time the toolbar icon is selected. I’d prefer, instead, that only the checkbox for the currently displayed webpage be listed.

It's great! Well worth the money. If you want to declutter, get it. Super clean, simple, and easy to use: the PiP feature does it for me.

If you want the features of streaming services like episode previews you can just toggle it off in the top bar of Safari—this extension is super good.
