Baking Soda for Safari ➝

Zhenyi Tan, announcing the new Safari extension:

Like Vinegar, Baking Soda is a Safari extension that replaces custom video players with an HTML <video> tag.

Unlike Vinegar, Baking Soda works on all custom video players other than YouTube. It doesn’t block ads or let you switch the video quality, so the changes are mostly cosmetic. Picture-in-picture should work, but I didn’t (and couldn’t) test it on all the websites.

I’ve been using Baking Soda for a few days and it’s a pretty nifty little extension. I haven’t ran into any websites that it breaks and it’s nice not having to deal with junky custom video players.
