How to enable YouTube Autoplay

Here’s how you can enable the experimental feature. If you use Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari or Internet Explorer 8+:

1. open youtube.com in a new tab

2. load your browser’s developer console:

* Chrome or Opera 15+ – press Ctrl+Shift+J for Windows/Linux/ChromeOS or Command-Option-J for Mac

* Firefox – press Ctrl+Shift+K for Windows/Linux or Command-Option-K for Mac

* Internet Explorer 8+ – press F12 and select the “Console” tab

* Safari 6+ – if you haven’t enabled the Develop menu, open Preferences from the Safari menu, go to the Advanced tab and check “Show Develop menu in menu bar”. Close Preferences and then press Command-Option-C to show the console.

* Opera 12 – press Ctrl+Shift+I for Windows/Linux or Command-Option-I for Mac, then click “Console”.

(More simple: right click on blank space on YouTube page and click Inspect Element and go to tab “Console”)

3. paste the following code on bottom which changes a YouTube cookie:

document.cookie="VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=R8LngOvykFw; path=/; domain=.youtube.com";window.location.reload();
4. press Enter and close the console.

Open a random video to see the autoplay feature. It shows on top right corner of the page beside “Up next”. To disable the experiment, use the same instructions, but replace the code from step 3 with this one:

document.cookie="VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE=; path=/; domain=.youtube.com";window.location.reload();
If You have option to clear cookies when You close browser repeat procedure every next time when You need Autoplay.
