What is it?

Video Adjust for Netflix is a Google Chrome extension to increase the brightness of any Netflix video.

Unfortunately some Netflix titles are unusually dark. This is especially noticeable if working split screen or dual monitor. After a while I decided to create this extension to easily apply and save video filters to

The extension works by finding the HTML <video> tag and applying the -webkit-video-filter: brightness(xxx) CSS property.


Using the extension is easy:

  1. Install the extension.
  2. Go to and start playing any video.
  3. Click the red Video Adjust app icon icon in the top-right of Google Chrome  and drag the brightness slider.

The video filter is updated in real time as you move the sldiers.

Have some feedback?


  • QThe Video Adjust app icon icon is greyed-out and clicking it just brings me to this page.
  • A The extension is congifured to only activate on The icon will be grey if you are on any other website. First go to Netflix and start playing a video – the icon should turn from grey to red and then you can click it to change the video settings.
  • QMy video is stuttering / Are there any performance impacts of this extension?
  • AVideo properties are modified with CSS video filters. In Google Chrome these are GPU-accellerated so there should not be any noticeable impact to the video performance. If you have issues, make sure you have the latest version of Chrome. Try disabling the extension and see if the problem goes away – if so you can send me an email above and I'll look into it!
  • Q Netflix changed something and now the extension doesn't work!
  • A The extension needs to know where to find the video within the code of the page. When Netflix makes a change to their layout it can break the extension. Feel free to send me an email above to let me know.
