What is ytcFilter?
'ytcFilter' is a Firefox add-on that enhances your Youtube chat experience. It allows users to filter and capture messages through preset and customizable rules. This includes English tagged messages, Japanese characters, alphanumeric characters, messages from staff, and more. ytcFilter also works with embedded chat via third-party websites and Youtube popout chat, and incorporates Youtube's block/report feature to ward off spam. The tool's archiving capability maintains a repository of all messages for future reference.
