Add a feature to “dim the lights” of the room page would be great on the eyes. I’m a person who experience migraines a lot and when i get them it makes me very light sensitive; so, things like watch2gether, youtube, and a ton of other website makes my eyes burn. Having an option to make the room page go dark (similar to how twitch.tv does it like this image https://cdn.nightdev.com/betterttv/images/ss2.png ) would be very nice to have on watch2gether! Aka make a Dark Mode which can be turned on or off on a toggle setting.
There is no login button (to my knowledge) on an actual room page, or even a signup button. There should be! It’s odd having to go to the main page to sign in when I’ve been linked watch2gether room by a friend after clearing browser cookies/cache etc.
Thanks a lot for your ideas. These are two good inputs to improve the service!
Hey! i Just Created a “Dark-Mode” for Myself, its not done yet, so there are some Bugs and Stuff atm,
Take a look at it! ( http://prntscr.com/9sbelf )
So i made this with a Chome-Plugin Called “Stylish”
Just send a message to my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want the Code!
Thanks a lot for your input. There will be options to change the styling of a Watch2Gether room in the future but we would like to sync the style across all users of a room. So stay tuned
Thought I’d let you know that there’s a browser extension for YouTube called “Magic Actions” (http://www.chromeactions.com/), which adds a light switch toggle next to the YouTube logo so you can turn OFF the brightnesss and use the site in a dark mode. It also comes with extra features such as: Stop videos from auto-playing, Turn off video annotations, Auto-set video quality to your preferred type (1080p, 720p, 480p etc.)… just to name a few. Hope that helps, 'cause I can’t live without it.
Thanks for the suggestion, but I use firefox and have downloaded apps/addons for several sites now that make a lot of websites easier on the eyes because of my constant headaches/eye strain problem. For firefox I use “YouTube Dark Purple” and “Twitch.tv Dark” for youtube/twitch.
