Hello. I installed youtube center a while ago to disable dash playback and now chrome autodisabled the extension and I can't renable it. Isn there any way I can reenable it? Thanks!
Edit: Somewhat obligatory: Ican't believe this made it to the top of the subreddit! Nice to see I'm not alone in this issue

Same here. This and a few other extensions just say “This extension is not listed in the Chrome Web Store and may have been added without your knowledge”
This is bs. They shouldnt be able to dictate how I use an internet browser. Happened to me too.
Just happened to my TF2R.com extension
What the fuck google…
They claim to be disabling 3rd party extensions to prevent malicious extensions from affecting casual users. But it’s complete *bullshit* to give no option to re-enable these extensions.
Where do we send our disgruntled emails?
I’m really getting tempted to switch to Firefox. Google is just pissing me off more and more lately.
Ok so, after reading [this](https://productforums.google.com/d/msg/chrome/2yTVWdfC4Gg/BkbPOe08hWsJ) answer, it seems you really have a few options here:
1) switch to dev or canary builds
2) use chrome on anything but windows.
3) download the source to the extension and run it as a “unpackaged” extension.
4) have the owner stick it on the chrome webstore (which we all know will work *really* well)
So yeah, this really does suck….
Download Tampermonkey and install the user script version (make sure to get the developer version). It apparently has more features than the extension and won’t be blocked/removed by Chrome!
First they make the address bar suggestion list obnoxious as fuck, then they go full retard on the new tab page, and now they disable our extensions.
Time to switch.
This… Fuck you Google, sure, give me a warning that installing non-appstore extensions could pose a threat, that’s fine.
But don’t dictate to me how I use my internet browser – switching to Firefox until this change is lifted.
Anyone have the steps to install YTC as developer?
Here is how to get Youtube Center working again:
1.) Install [Tampermonkey](https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tampermonkey/dhdgffkkebhmkfjojejmpbldmpobfkfo?hl=en) from the Google Chrome Store
2.) Install the [Youtube Center userscript](http://userscripts.org:8080/scripts/show/114002) into Tampermonkey.
Is there anyway to grab the setting from the old addon so I can import them into the tampermonkey script?
Stupid question: is there any reason why the developers cannot put the extension on the chrome webstore making it legit?
Here is a workaround.
Unzip the crx extension.
Tick “Developer Mode” here [chrome://extensions/]
Hit “Load Unpacked Extension”
Browse the Unzipped crx location and select it.
You can install the extension made for the new Opera version (now a Chromium-derivative, as Chrome, just a bit more different) on Google Chrome.
It will possibly reject the install initially, but will download it anyway, or at least you can ask to do it. Then you can drag the download, on the “download tab” at the bottom, to the extension management tab. That should bring a pop-up offering to install it anyway. If that doesn’t work, perhaps starting the browser with the flag ” –enable-easy-off-store-extension-install”. But that may be obsolete and unnecessary, or just null.
For those who insist on Chrome but would like the Flash player back on YouTube (as opposed to the bloody HTML5/ffmpegsumo)… a dirty but surefire trick – no extensions… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHdhyt6HG3A (3 first mins of this video shows the trick)
i used to have this problem.
i think the problem lays in your other extensions, atleast in my case. i took away all my other extensions and then it started to work again. so i think one of your other extensions did it
Some closure on the topic, there is a solution:
