== Description ==

Use at own risk on your WordPress/BuddyPress websites as this has not been updated since 12 January 2022 and I've removed it from the WordPress directory to prevent anymore downloads.

YouTube is back!

Having tested this using Firefox, Edge, Chrome on Windows 10 & Linux it works on all except for Chrome on Windows 10!

You can bypass this in Chrome by searching in the developer tools, locate the cookies, go to, locate a cookie named "remember_random-number", and change the value for 'Same Site' to none and remove the tick for HttpOnly and add a tick in 'Secure',
This may only be affecting some users, Images on how to do this are now below.

You now have to register to use the chat, you can do that at <a href=""   rel="nofollow ugc"  >Tinychat</a> , I apologise about that.

You can now access dark mode! I've added screenshots on how to turn it on, I hope it helps.
