Need to do something on YouTube but get distracted by recommended videos? Use "No Distractions" for YouTube to hide distractions and stay on task!

"No Distractions" for YouTube is an open-source Safari App Extension I built to help myself. It lets you take control over your use of YouTube instead of letting the YouTube algorithms control you...!

It does this by letting you hide video recommendations, and many other distractions on the front, search, and watch pages (e.g., control whether you want to see comments, thumbnail images, view & like counts, etc). Oh, and the app also also hides the ads that are inserted in your search results. :)

You can decide for yourself which parts you want to see, by clicking the extension icon.

If you want the app to remember your settings for next time, click 'save settings'.

If you need to add a little friction to change the settings, so that you don't turn distractions back on too easily, you can set a wait time. This will make you wait e.g. 5 seconds when you open the settings before they appear.

The app is open source and does not collect any data. You can inspect the source code, report bugs, and suggest additional features or improvements on: https://github.com/ulyngs/open-source-no-distractions-for-youtube

Great, 1 note...

This works great -- only thing is it still leaves the grid of suggested videos once your video finishes.

But otherwise, best option I've found for Safari so far. Thank you!

Developer Response ,

Good point, I hadn't thought about that! I've tweaked the app to also hide the grid of suggested videos after a video finished, and have submitted an updated version to the App Store - it should be up in a couple of days! :)

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review!

Love this Extension!

So convinient to use and select what you want / don't want to see. Love It!
I would only make the Icon itslef on the browser toolbar smaller and darker (for dark mode).
Other than that - It's perfect! Great Work!
