15 Coolest YouTube Tools

Yeah! YouTube still is my favorite topic and in honor to that, I blithesomely gathered the 15 coolest YouTube tools for you video loving horde!

Let’s get right to it!

15 Coolest YouTube Tools


This YouTube tool is totally wicked and I love it! Wake up with a Tony Robbins seminar or your favorite music artist! Just set the time you want to wake up and paste the link of the YouTube video you want to hear when you rise and that’s it. Just remember to leave your computer on at night though.


Ever stumbled upon the YouTube message: “this video has been removed for copyright violation”? This site tracks down videos that were removed due to alleged copyright violation. Each video is accompanied by a description, keyword tags and screen shots. Some clips are also accompanied by a world map so you can see which countries can watch them and which countries can’t.


TubeStop is an extension for FireFoxthat disables the autoplay on YouTube videos. This comes in handy for opening multiple YouTube videos in tabs in the background without them all starting to play at once. TubeStop also disables the autoplay on YouTube videos embedded on non-YouTube sites.

GoogleTubeYouTube tools

GoogleTube is a FireFox extension adds a YouTube icon next to the Google search results that have videos associated with them. Click on the button and you can watch the videos directly on the search results page.

Virtual Video Map

Basically a world map where you can click on any location to watch a video of that location. Cool gimmick!

Video Download Helper

Install the application and Video Download Helper’s icon will animate when you come to a page that has a video you can download. When you start the download process, you can also choose which format you want to save the file as. Great YouTube downloader.

YouTube Widget

If you want to find and watch YouTube videos directly from your desktop rather than using the website then this Adobe AIR app is right for you. It lets you browse and search for something specific without needing to open your browser.

Better YouTube

Better YouTube combines some of the most popular Greasemonkey scripts for YouTube that do things like give you an alternate player, a cleaner interface,enlarges videos for better viewing, hides user comments, declutters the page and disables autoplay.

Years Watching YouTube

Ever wondered how much human time is lost to a given YouTube video?  This script multiplies the length of the video with the number of views and tells you in years how much time the video has consumed from the world. It’s a Greasemonkey FireFox script.

YouTube Lights out

Another Greasemonkey FireFox script. It gives you a light bulb icon so you can turn off the “lights” and darken the background for easier enjoyment of your video.

YouTube Lyrics

Yet another Greasemonkey FireFox script. It searches different sites for the lyrics of the song you are watching and displays the lyrics next to your video.


Type in a keyword and this tool creates a timeline for you with related videos.

YouTube Tools TimeTube


Great YouTube tool that let’s you create captions or subtitles for your YouTube videos. Export the captions and upload them to your YouTube account.


Check up on which videos are most viral (watched and shared) at the moment. Luuving this!

Tube Spy

Find out what people are watching on YouTube right now. It delivers a live feed of what’s currently being watched around the world. Great YouTube tool if you are lacking inspiration.

I’ll stop here for now 🙂 I hope you enjoy this list and start enhancing your YouTube experience with these 15 coolest YouTube tools. Please leave a comment.
