Mac/iOS Safari Extension: Vinegar

Zhenyi Tan (via John Gruber):

YouTube5 was a Safari extension back when Flash was still a thing and hated by everyone. It replaced the YouTube player (written in Flash) with an HTML <video> tag.

And now the YouTube player situation has gotten bad enough that we need another extension to fix it. That’s where Vinegar comes in. Vinegar also replaces the YouTube player (written in who-knows-what) with a minimal HTML <video> tag.

$1.99 for a universal purchase.

The developer is pretty responsive too. I discovered it doesn’t work with embedded playlists. Dev didn’t realize playlists could be embedded and he’s looking into a solution.
