What is Quietube?
Quietube is a tool designed to enhance your YouTube experience by cutting out all the comments and pictures of other videos that fill the screen as you watch a video. It is fast, free, and easy to use. While Quietube hides ads from YouTube and the surrounding pictures of videos, Quietube does display an ad below the video and after the video has played, YouTube displays pictures of other, similar videos.
Not only is Quietube wonderful for watching videos, it allows you to share videos with less risk of directing friends and family to a page full of embarrassingly inappropriate material. Simply copy and paste the link to the Quietube page onto your blog, Facebook profile, or email message in place of the YouTube link. With Quietube, you get the video and nothing but the video—helping parents who want to keep their kids safe from all the some bad aspects of YouTube.
In addition to YouTube, Quietube works with BBC iPlayer, Viddler, and Vimeo. Support for other video sites is in progress. For the up-to-date status see the Quietube Twitter feed: @quietube.
