Stylus Styles for YT Live

make Youtube like you need it…

Stylus is a browser extension for Chrome (and Opera) that allows the user to manage and create "styles" that modify the appearance of web sites. Users may download existing skins/styles from a repository, or write their own. Stylus uses CSS scripting to override the selected site's CSS.

Below is my CSS for Youtube live streams. Most of it improves the chat box.

In Stylus, name your style, click Edit, and paste the following into a Section.

/* For Youtube Live Streams, Rev. 04/09/19
   NOTE: 1080p desplay; Windows zoom: 125%; browser zoom: 150%.
   User will need to adjust some pixel settings to accomodate zoom used.

    /* font-family: "Arial Unicode MS" !important; */
    margin: 0 !important;

#masthead-container {
    /* unlock stupid fat fixed top bar so it'll scroll up */
