Default Limiting YouTube Bandwidth Usage

My daughter seems to always be on YouTube either watching videos or just using it to listen to music in the background. Last month, of our 100GB cap she used over 60%. A large part of the problem is that YouTube is always trying to play the best quality it can unless you manually tell it not to each and every time you start a new video.

I have written a free Chrome extension that will help out anyone else in this situation. The extension will automatically ensure that the YouTube™ video quality is always (unless overridden) set to the lowest available for each video. This will save a lot of bandwidth for our slow connections and small data caps.

Check it out here:
