YouTube is undoubtedly one of the platforms of streaming video most users visit when they want to search or play all types of content from the browser, however, often the large amount of content that can be found by referring to what we seek you can make finding the video you really want to be complicated. As in all such platforms or sites to download files, many users take advantage to add content determined with a name or title, but has nothing to do with the actual content of the video.

Sure has happened to us more than once, go to YouTube to find the video of our favorite song in the list of results click on one of them and not really expected content is displayed. It is in these moments where you are missing on the platform of Google the presence of a function that allows us to see a preview of the content to make sure it is what we wanted.

Currently we cannot do this, and therefore only wait for the video to load and start playback to check the accuracy of the content. However, there are some tools for our browser, ranging us to incorporate this feature on YouTube.

Google Chrome

If you are someone who you use as your default browser Google, from Chrome web store can install the extension Video Presentation to your browser and just hover your mouse over the thumbnail of the YouTube video, we will see how a displayed view content after 3 or 4 images that are rotated during the time we leave the mouse over the video, but that will be sufficient to check if the content we wanted.

Firefox

However, if you are someone who you prefer to use the Mozilla browser, you can also add to Firefox a supplement called YouTube Video Player Preview we will offer a preview of YouTube content before playing it. You can add the add -on from this same link and try to see the preview of YouTube videos, although I must say, it works differently than the Chrome extension.

In this case, we are not going to see the preview of the videos on the home page or search results, but we will be able to do on the thumbnails of all the videos suggested that shown in the right part of the screen when we have selected a video for playback.
