I do like the interface of this extension compared to the others. There's 2 issues I have though. 1. To get the controls to even display, I constantly need to pause the video first, then press play which it would pop up at the bottom of the video soon after. Not a big deal, but it does gets kinda annoying after a while. 2. Once the controls activates, the tag button that displays people tagged in the video disappears. Many other extensions that are similar to this have the same issue, but it would be nice if that got fixed. Other than that, it functions like it should.

This extension is awesome overall. It fixes some of what I think are the biggest annoyances with Instagram. I only gave it 4 out of 5 stars though, because it has an annoyance of its own. Whenever I jump to a position in a video, to rewind or fast forward it, the sound becomes muted, and I have to unmute it. I wish this would be fixed. But other than that, this extension is awesome.

Works like a charm! Would love if it can work in feed as well. And yes, why isn't that already a feature?!
