Youtube Audio Mode

This userscript adds a toggle to switch audio mode on Youtube.

I've found the original userscript on Github: https://github.com/teaqu/youtube-audio-mode but it's not working anymore so I've opened an issue. After a month without receiving a reply I've decided to update the script myself and eventually maintain it. The first thing I've noticed is that the issue I've opened was totally wrong.

Known issues

  • When activating audio mode, the userscript starts making the same Youtube-native FETCH request multiple times (3-4 times). The request is for the stream at timeline 0:00, therefore the audio keeps restarting and is pretty annoying. Fixed in v.0.2.8

Feedback appreciated
