I created a Browser extension that Enables Youtube Comments when they are disabled!

About a week ago, I wrote a blog post about how I concluded that disabling comments on Youtube videos could be oppression of free speech.

My philosophy is that if you have the freedom and opportunity to express your opinions to the public, you should be open to receiving criticism and feedback. Preventing people from expressing their thoughts on that by using features like disabling commenting, is against freedom of speech.

This incident became a reason that I made Kament, a commenting platform for Youtube shipped as a browser extension that is enabling comments on videos when the commenting section is restricted. a tool to empower the public to express their voice, not affiliated with Youtube, or the publisher of the video, completely neutral, made to bring Free Speech back to Youtube.

Kament is currently available on Google Chrome Store and Firefox Addons Store, which essentially makes it available for all chromium-based browsers such as Opera, Microsoft Edge, Brave, and Vivaldi.

Once you install the extension, you need to sign in with your Google account, and that’s it, whenever you open a video in which the comments are disabled, Kament.io will activate and allow you to post comments. You no longer need to take such discussions to platforms such as Reddit or Twitter, you can comment on the video, right there.

To get started and be up and running with Kament in less than 20 seconds, check https://kament.io .

If you support this idea, it would be great if you share it with your friends and follow our social media accounts on Twitter and Instagram.

Also, I would be more than happy to hear your comments and suggestions on this!

  1. Where are the comments stored? I assume that one has to install the extension for not only posting, but also seeing the comments?

  2. You can create an extension like this powered by blockchain. Though comments will be stored permanently, it doesn’t mean you can’t have a delete or edit comment feature. The comments will be presented by a front end that calls for the latest data of the blockchain. If you implement a delete button, all it will do is generate a new dataset for the front end to call and display for users. Users could still browse the blockchain data history to see deleted comments (old datasets). It wouldn’t be hard to implement, sadly I just don’t have the time for it. Hope this was helpful for anyone considering it. But yea, a comments extension would be very welcome.

  3. Well, if it is stored in your Kament server, what’s the purpose if the comment isn’t still enabled to be read in youtube? It can’t be viewed in youtube if a user doesn’t have Kament installed and logged into it right?

  4. that is absolutely true, the idea is not to hack youtube. its to provide an alternative platform that makes it feel you can discuss or comment on a video right at that URL.
    although you can’t see the comments if you don’t have the extension installed, the users who have the extension can share a public link on kament.io that displays all the comments.

  5. that actually could be a good idea, I will see in the future and see how interested people are on the idea.

  6. Finally someone got the same idea and actually made it. Thank you and congratulation !
    Hope that it will grow and work like sponsorblock did 😉
