My fourth Chrome plug-in is now available on the Chrome web store!

YouTube™ Ambilight is a simple Chrome plug-in that takes the colour from the video to colour in the rest of the page, creating a more immersive video experience.

So the background of the whole page always reflects what is in the video. I’ve found it works really well with strobe type lighting effects. So if the colours in the video change really quick, so does the background. It adds a greater sense of presence to whatever is playing. So if its bright, so is the page; whereas if its dark, so is the rest of page.

For all the details please see the YouTube™ Ambilight page.
