YouTube™ Ambilight (YouTube™ Super Ambient Theatre Mode) 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 viewing experience.

Download: Version 2.3 – Chrome Web Store

This plug-in is only available on the Chrome Web Store

When you are on a YouTube video, simply click the Ambilight button that appears in the address bar, as illustrated with a colourful TV.

Videos that are forced to play in Flash, such as some VEVO videos, will not work with the plugin.

For the best effect try it with movie trailers and music videos, or any video where the colours change rapidly.

If you have any problems or questions please use the comments section at the bottom of the page.
