Browser Extension Automatically Resumes YouTube Videos Where You Left Off

By Megan O'Neill 

If you’ve ever started watching a YouTube video and accidentally clicked away from the video page or paused for later only to accidentally close your browser, then you know how annoying it can be trying to find the spot where you left off.  This afternoon we stumbled across Video Resumer, a browser extension that will prevent you from ever losing your spot in a YouTube video again.

Video Resumer can be installed in a click on Chrome or Firefox.  Once installed, the extension “Automatically resumes YouTube videos from where you played them last.  Without this extension, for example, when you click through YouTube videos, back and forth, they always start from the beginning. No more.  With this extension, previously seen videos will resume from where you left them at.  Even if you restart your browser.”

Will you be installing the Video Resumer extension?  If you do, we’d love to hear what you think of it in the comments below!
